The first sportscar launch of 2015 is marked by Audi R8 LMX.
German carmaker finally succeeded in making its move during the first month of 2015. Reportedly, it launched R8 LMX in India for a whopping price of Rs 2.97 crore ex-showroom Mumbai.
The special feature about this car is its headlamps, which are consisted of laser beams. LMX is the first production car to dwell laser diodes for the headlamps.
Talking about it in detail, illumination ranges upto 500 metres and it can be only activated after crossing 60kmph on speedometer.
A single module of the laser generates double the amount of all LED light. Additionally, the camera-sensor in system judges it to detect other oncoming vehicles and adjust the beam to avoid dazzle.
Under the hood, Audi R8 LMX uses a 5.2-litre V10 engine of 562bhp and 540Nm of torque. The 7-speed S Tronic auto gearbox transmits to all four-wheels for attaining 0-100kmph in 3.4 seconds and clear sweep to the top-slot of 320kmph.
Cosmetically, on outers, designers have fixed a black colored spoiler at rear. The Ara Blue paint largely complements the black colored side-flics, engine cover, wing mirror, exhaust pipes, rear wing and diffuser. Even the titanium grey painted front grille, air intake, and rear outlet too suits the proportional paint scheme.
On inside, the seats are of bucket genre, where Nappa leather takes on the door panels and gear lever. The Alcantara is draped to headliner, and covers up the parking brake lever, center tunnel console, instrument panel and steering, wheel where the Sepang blue stitches forays for contradiction.
Door sills get illuminated with those aluminium inlays that do come with limited-edition number. To put that fact more precisely, only 99 examples of R9 LMX are built and would be sold across the world.
