Audi R8 LMX Launched


Rare & Limited Audi R8 LMX Launched:

If you have about 3 Crore Indian rupees to spare, you would be regarded as a wealthy person in India. What could you buy with Rs. 3 Crore? – A plush villa with garden or approx. 10.786 kg of gold - at the today’s (Jan 27, 2015) market rate of Rs. 27,800/- per Tola (10 gm). And these items’ value would eventually appreciate in the long-term; most likely. If you invest your money in these, you might be considered the one with a very high-profile lifestyle; then just hold on. Ironically today, Rs. 3 Crore is barely enough to buy only a single car product of a European brand with almost no money left to even refuel it; thanks to the high-end & rarest of rare super-luxury car - the Audi R8 LMX with virtually limitless performance.

Audi, the German luxury car-maker, has added the supreme lavishness to its portfolio with the launch of the Audi R8 LMX – its Limited Edition super-sports car only a few could afford. It seems Audi India is taking the lead in launching the hyper-performance cars in India by bringing in the Audi R8 LMX. The Audi R8 LMX will be the first production car with one-of-its-kind ‘Laser High-Beam Lighting’ in India. However, Audi will limit its production to only 99 cars globally, making it a very rare & really limited offer.
