Five motorsport-inspired Audi R8s are set to come to Britain – a car Audi is calling its 'most capable and focused to date'.

The limited-run supercar, of which only 44 will be produced worldwide, adds a number of performance parts which increase downforce and drop weight, while the power figure remains the same as the R8 Plus' 600 bhp figure. The additions aren't just cosmetic though. As well as the car's diet, the enhancements are said to improve cornering ability.

The wind tunnel-developed bodykit adds a large fixed rear wing and diffuser, as well as side skirts, and more elements behind the wheel arches and at the front of the car to further direct airflow through and around the car. There's also a large front splitter reminiscent of the Audi R8 GT3 racing car.

The changes bring an increase in downforce – at 93 mph downforce is doubled from the standard R8 V10 Plus' figure to 52 kg, while at 205 mph the car generates 250 kg, which is 100 kg more than the standard model.

Lightweight 20-inch wheels further shave 8 kg from the car, while fully-adjustable, lightweight three-way coilover suspension setup is also fitted, along with ceramic brake discs and specially-enhanced brake pads. A sports exhaust, and an interior trimmed with Fine Nappa leather, and fitted with bucket seats, MMI Navigation, Audi connect online services and the fully digital Audi Virtual Cockpit completes the car.

The cars haven't sold out yet, although in the time its taken us to write this story, that could very well have changed. All five right-hand-drive UK examples are available from any one of Audi's 115 showrooms nationwide, at a price of £176,560 – roughly £42,000 more than the R8 V10 Plus.

Now stop wasting your time on the internet, get down to your local Audi dealer before its too late!
