China is a rapidly ascending world power, but they have a long way to go in the cool car department. However, that journey appears to have shortened a bit thanks to the people at Audi, who have designed a special limited-edition R8 specifically for China.  How specifically, you ask?  Well, it’s being called the “Audi R8 China Edition,” which pretty much says it all.

Each of the model’s 30 pieces can hit a speed of 62 miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds. And yes, you read that right.  Audi is only releasing 30 of them across the Chinese shores. So unless you’re from China and can afford to buy one of these pricey automobiles, your odds of seeing an Audi R8 China Edition on the streets are about as slim as your chances of winning the lottery.
