The first thing that gets you is the design highlights on this car. Audi’s signature Daytona Gray is applied on the body paint with a matte finish, but the bronze highlights are absolutely out of character for an R8.

From the 20″ wheels to the engine’s intake manifold – so much of this car is covered in matte bronze. Anotherhighlight colour is gloss black.
