It is called the 'Selection 24' and is based on the R8 Coupe V10 Plus.

And the reason for it being made at all is to do 'homage' to the Nürburgring-winning Audi R8 LMS.

I'm told it will be sold out shortly because they are only making 24 - that's what you called scarcity. And while there have been no Irish enquiries as yet, the '24' would cost around €40,000 more than the current R8 V10 Plus. So expect to shell out around €300,000 for starters.

Setting it apart visually from the non-24 cars are its tricolour paint finish (Suzuka grey, mythos black and Misano red highlights) as well as an extensive technical package.

The mid-engined '24' (5.2-litre V10, 610hp) accelerates to 100kmh in just 3.2 seconds. It has a top speed of 330 kmh.

Audi say that makes the car their fastest and most powerful production of all time.

The technical package in the "24h" edition includes dynamic steering; adaptive damper control system, Audi magnetic ride and laser lighting.
