The 2020 Audi R8 V10 Quattro is a limited edition model which is the only variant available now as the original model has been officially retired.
When it says limited edition, obviously buyers should get it as quickly as possible. However, Audi has confirmed that they will be selling the R8 V10 performance edition which happens to be the top of the line variant and it will be badged as the 2021 variant.
The automobile industry is slowly moving towards an all-electric future and Audi is one of the many brands that wish to make the transition as smooth as possible. While gasoline and diesel cars will continue to exist, some of the models are being bid farewell so that there could be space for other models to be filled in. The entry levels models are often under tough competition that it doesn’t sound logical to keep making them in bulk numbers. The company wants to discontinue the lineup which is why a limited edition for the outgoing model is being made now.
