Audi is giving the new R8 LMX its first public showing in Le Mans on June 13. Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, member of the Board for Technical Development at AUDI AG, and motor racing legends Rinaldo Capello and Marco Werner will also be present. The highlight is the laser headlights of the Audi R8 LMX. These are activated at speeds above 60 km/h (37.3 mph); their high range substantially improves driving safety. An intelligent camera-based sensor system detects other road users and actively adjusts the light pattern to exclude them.
419 kW (570 hp), from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.4 seconds: The Audi R8 LMX (12.9 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers [18.2 US mpg]; 299 grams CO2 per kilometer [481.2 g/mile]) offers breathtaking performance and groundbreaking technology. The limited-edition car is the first production car in the world to come equipped with laser high beams. The R8 LMX can now be ordered and will debut on the streets this summer.
