The Top Five Special Edition Audi Models of All-Time

Audi is among the top automakers that is known for producing high-end luxury models as well as sporty cars. The company has for decades tried to compete with others in the upper cadre and in this journey they have released different cars, some of which are rare breeds you probably have never heard about. Getting a list of some of these cars would help you understand and appreciate the history of the brand and how it has helped to shape the motoring industry.

Here are the top five special edition Audi cars of all time.

Audi R8 Coupe V10 plus Special edition

The Audi R8 Coupe V10 plus was built as homage to R8 LMS for its impressive performance and endurance in racing. It features tricolor paint finish as well as exclusive exterior features that include a technical package. Also referred to as the “selection 24” package, the R8 Coupe V10 plus is quite powerful as it packs a whole 610 horsepower and is able to accelerate from zero to 100 in just 3.2 seconds. Its weight of 1,454 is also a factor that helps the car to maintain the quick cruise. The focus while manufacturing the car was mainly on achieving a sporty effect and this is something Audi was able to include well with this special edition of the R8 Coupe V10.

Audi TT Coupe ALMS Special Edition – 2002

The 2002 Audi TT Coupe came with a 6-speed manual gearbox and this is one of the most beautiful coupe designs from Audi. It ran an inline 4 engine and the thing about the car is that it was produced as part of commemorating the American Le Mans Series. The car represents a performance-oriented iteration of the wonderful Bauhaus sports version made by Audi. Unfortunately, only 1000 of these were built and they would offer a power output of 225 bhp. The TT 2-door roadster was offered at an original MSRP price of $33,200 while the 6-speed version cost $38,900 original MSRP.

Audi S4 B6

When placed against Audi A4, the Audi S4 looks similar to its sister models. But upon further review these are two different cars and the S4 sits on a higher ground than the rest. It is built to the highest quality levels of its base model and predecessors. Focus on this car was to offer improvements in versatility and power. The S4 came with a V8 engine that outputs 339bhp while running at 7,000 rpm and it achieves over 300lb/ft of torque while running at 3,500 rpm. Additionally, the car includes high-performance camshafts that are designed to optimize the flow of air at the top of its odometer. The base price of the car ranged between $48,040 and $49,040 depending on the market.

Audi Sport Quattro S1 – 1987

Now referred to as an innovator of motorsport in late 20th century, the 1987 Quattro S1 was built as a science experiment to feature in a rally competition. The car came with a turbocharged 2.1L engine that packed 306 bhp and 258lb/ft of torque. It had an even power distribution system that ensured power was transferred to all the four wheels through a patented design that had just been adopted by Audi. The interior of the Quattro S1 was furnished with custom racing seats. For quicker handling, Audi chopped a foot from its wheelbase.

Audi R8 V-8 Exclusive Selection (2012)

Produced in 2012, the Exclusive Selection Edition of the Audi R8 V-8 had unique interior finishes as well as exterior additions that were focused on performance. Audi offered Daytona Gray color for the first time with this model and there was also some inclusion of carbon fiber on the exterior splitter diffuser. Additionally, the car had a 4.2-liter FSI V8 engine that achieved 420 horsepower at 7900 rpm.

 

The Exclusive Edition R8 arrived at a price of $161,500 for the six speed manual gearbox while those who chose the R automatic gearbox version would part with $170,600. The driver’s cockpit comes with exclusive leather surround and it also included bi-color e-tron wheels. For a sportier grip, the car also had a thicker and contoured multifunctional leather steering wheel. It’s one of the cars that stand out as this was a unique model that is not common in the market, so if you are in the market or one you might find the chase a bit tough.
