The Audi R8 now has a rear-wheel-drive version, and the first 30 units will be an exclusive Panther Edition in a black and red colorway. The theme of the R8 Panther Edition follows last year's RS 5 Panther Edition, with Audi's bespoke Panther Black crystal effect paint. 20-inch mill-cut double-spoke wheels are finished in matte black and trimmed in red, wrapped in summer high-performance rubber. The interior is finished in black leather with crimson red seating surfaces and contrast stitching, while the seats are carbon fiber racing shells. Audi's 532 horsepower naturally-aspirated V10 drives the rear wheels for a 0-60 time of 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 201 MPH. The R8 Panther Edition will arrive in the US just in time for the holidays.
