Audi has unveiled the limited-edition R8 Competition, which draws inspiration from the R8 LMS race car. It will make its world debut at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show.

"The limited-edition Audi R8 competition is the closest road car to our R8 LMS ultra race car that has won virtually every race around the world," said Scott Keogh, President, Audi of America. "It is designed for the driving enthusiast and we're excited to bring 60 units as a limited-edition to the U.S."

The high-performance R8 Competition features a 570 hp 5.2L V10 mated exclusively to a seven-speed S tronic and a sport exhaust system with black high-gloss tailpipes. This combination results in a 0-60 mph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 199 mph, making it the fastest R8 ever offered. In comparison, the R8 V10 Plus has 550 hp, accelerates to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and features a 198 mph top speed.

The R8 Competition shares the same naturally aspirated V10 FSI engine as the Audi R8 LMS race car which has won Daytona and Nuerburgring 24 hour races as well as all other major GT races around the globe.

Further enhancing the Audi R8 Competition design are striking matte carbon exterior elements consisting of a fixed rear spoiler, engine bay, mirror housings, flics, side blades, front spoiler and rear diffusor. The combination of the carbon elements lower the weight of the R8 Competition and also provide greater downforce. Gloss black wheels with 305 cross-section rear tires and ceramic brakes with anodized red brake calipers provide a contrast to the matte carbon fiber elements.

Inside, drivers will find a matte carbon fiber treatment including the center console and illuminated "R8 Competition" door sill inlays. The R8 Competition is an Audi exclusive line vehicle, which allows the driver to pair a variety of interior and exterior colors and choose from a selection of wheel finishes for a striking look designed to meet driver needs and tastes.

A total of 60 units will be produced at the R8 production facility in Neckarsulm, Germany. Deliveries are expected to commence at the beginning of 2015.
