Audi has achieved quite a bit of success at the Nürburgring in recent years and it likes to think about that. The result is this R8 Green Hell, an appropriately colored version. The GT3 car also visited the spray booth.
In the past decade, Audi has won the 24 Hours of the Nürburgring five times with the R8 LMS. Next weekend they will try to add a sixth victory to that. Car number 1 does that with a quite adapted appearance. The GT3 racer is painted in the color ‘Tioman Green’, against which the red of Audi Sport stands out quite sharply. The panels along the hip part of the R8 LMS are finished in matte black.
By the way, we are lying when we say that the car has passed a spray booth, because it is a wrap. However, that does not apply to the Green Hell edition of the ‘regular’ R8. This is of course just a factory paint finish in the color Tioman Green. The R8, limited to 50 copies, has – in contrast to the GT3 racer – only red accents on the wheels. Furthermore, the color applicable to the ‘Green Hell’ is the same as said and the side panels are also matte black. You will also find a special Green Hell logo on it. In the interior, that logo also returns on the floor mats, among other things. Green stitching further reminds the occupants that this is a special edition.
Incidentally, the atmospheric V10 in the R8 remains untouched. Basically, the Green Hell edition is an R8 Performance Quattro, which means that there are 620 horsepower to call up. The car accelerates from a standstill to 100 km / h in just 3.1 seconds and acceleration only stops at 331 km / h. Anyone who wants the party number on their driveway must have deep pockets. Audi reports € 233,949 as a German price. In the Netherlands, you quickly have to think about 3 tons.
