Audi was reading your mind when you found yourself wondering why a standard R8 V8 or V10 wasn’t enough, even with every option box checked. So what’d those German’s do? They planned a small build exclusively for the US.

Twenty 2012 R8 V8s will be up for grabs in an all-new Daytona Gray matte paint with carbon fiber exterior splitter and diffuse. It’ll roll on 19% titanium five-arm double spoke wheels and have accents with the black grille surround, black exhaust finishers, R8 GT tail lamps, and red brake calipers. Inside, the R8 V8 features an exclusive leather package with Crimson Red elements and contrast stitching, exclusive leather Navigation surround, and a thicker contoured leather multifunctional steering wheel for a sportier grip. Carbon Fiber elements, Bang & Olufsen Sound System and Navigation with the Audi Music Interface also add to the 2012 Exclusive Selection Edition V8.

If you want to swing bigger, you can try for the R8 V10 instead, where you might even have a better chance of scoring one since there will be thirty made. The V10 will come soaked in Ibis white, sporting Brilliant Black features – including the sideblade, sideview mirrors, and rear license plate surround – as well as R8 GT tail lamps and 19” bi-color e-tron wheels. Inside you’ll find Ibis finishes and Alabaster White contrast stitching, as well as a Carbon Fiber monoposto driver’s cockpit, completes the interior, which also features an exclusive leather Navigation surround and contoured steering wheel.

Did we say exclusive enough? Even better, though, is that you can get any exclusive (sorry, last time, we promise) R8 in either a 6-speed manual (you’ll do it if you’re a man) or the lightning fast R tronic dual-clutch auto.

Here’s the price breakdown:
2012 Exclusive Selection Edition R8 V8 manual transmission $137,700
2012 Exclusive Selection Edition R8 V8 R tronic transmission $146,800
2012 Exclusive Selection Edition R8 V10 manual transmission $161,500 

2012 Exclusive Selection Edition R8 V10 R tronic transmission $170,600
