From Audi comes another new special limited edition of its popular Audi R8, which is intended to accomodate the rapidly expanding Chinese marketplace. It’s called the Blue China Edition, and Audi has manufactured only 80, meaning they will likely only end up in the garages of a few lucky Audi devotees.

As you can see in the above photos, it earns its name with a striking blue colorway that includes grey accents on the R8‘s patented side blades (the buyer will also have the choice of switching these colors around).  And the vehicle is highlighted by its shinny 19-inch, five spoke rims and its upgraded carbon fiber rear wing.  And finally, there’s the sift knob, which includes some interesting Chinese characters that help identify the vehicle’s production number.

There are no pricing details available at the moment, but with only 80 in stock it’s a sure bet they’ll fetch healthy sums.
