A new luxury cabin, expected to be delivered later this year, will feature the latest features in luxury technology.
The new Audi R8, to be unveiled later this month, will be built from the ground up on the site of an old Audi plant in the northern German city of Essen, with all the new amenities the German car maker wants in a modern environment.
The Audi R-Luxury Cabs is set to be the company’s biggest and most expensive production vehicle yet, with a seating capacity of up to 80 people and a top speed of 190km/h.
The luxury cabin is expected to cost €5.5 million ($6.6 million) on top of the existing R-R, which already has a price tag of €4.3 million.
It is expected that the new Audi luxury cabin will be produced on the Audi site.
“We’ve always wanted to create a luxury product, and this new luxury product is our answer,” said Klaus Dietz, chairman and CEO of Audi.
It is also the first luxury car from Audi to be manufactured in Germany, according to Dietz.
According to Dietzzes team, the new luxury car is expected at the end of this year.
This luxury cabin comes in three variants: an entry level R8 cabins with seating for up to 90 people; an entry-level R8 Plus cabins, with seating up to 120; and a new R8 Premium cabins for 160-plus people.
As well as the new cabin, Audi will be producing an array of new high-tech amenities in its R-Series cars, including a new, fully automated braking system.
Dietz said the new R-series cars will be equipped with the latest technology and features, and will be able to drive on roads without human intervention.
The luxury carmaker is currently working on the new models and has been working with Audi on the project for more than a decade, said Dietz on Monday.
The first models of the new vehicles will be sold in the fourth quarter of 2021, he said.
An initial production run of the Audi R10 luxury sedan will be limited to 40,000 units, with an average price tag exceeding €9 million ($11.3 m).
The new luxury luxury cabin was conceived as an extension of Audi’s luxury brand, which has grown by leaps and bounds since the R8 launched in 2013.
