This week we will be looking at yet another coupe but this time we will be shifting focus to the Audi R8. While also a German engineered car, the Audi R8 is beyond exceptional. The Audi auto-giants have always shown promise and delivered excellence from past models of the R8 series down to this model which is the Audi R8 LMX. The Audi R8 LMX coupe is a car that shows no compromise needs to be made between functionality and style.
The Audi R8 LMX Coupe is highlighted by its unusual styling, having more structured curves as opposed to subtle ones much like the structured cheekbones of Somali-Ethiopian Model Fatima Siad. The details on the sides such as the calculated arch of the door and the side blades can be likened to the Siad arms and legs which are beautifully sculpted. The car is fitted for the first time ever with laser high beam headlights which are expected to throw light twice as far down as the LED lights. The front single frame grille, the air inlet grille and the outlet grille at the back are finished in a titanium grey giving the car a futuristic look to it.
Just like Siad, who is petite and oh so exotic, the two-seater mid-engine coupe is a supercar and is every bit as beautiful on the inside as it is outside. The dynamic lines from the exterior are carried on into the black and titanium grey interior. The seats are covered in black Nappa leather with a quilted pattern that is also seen on the door panels and on the black alcantara headliner.
The R8 LMX boasts of a running power of 0-60mph in 3.2secs that is powered its 5.2 liter V-10 engine. This model also gained a 20 horsepower upgrade over the previous model, bringing it to a total of 570 horsepower while maintaining its torque at 398 lb.-ft. This high revving performance engine is only second to the wild beauty of Siad which comes off just as powerful as the engines soundtrack.
Luxury doesn’t get any more exclusive than this as there will only be 99 units of the Audi R8 LMX produced for market circulation. So going over the list of all one would want in a luxury car such as performance, safety, technology and aesthetics the R8 more than checks out.
