We were surprised when a couple of days ago Italian coachbuilder Castagna Milano unveiled their limousine conversions of the Fiat 500. But even more remarkable conversions are possible: London based limousine brokerage service called Limo Broker recently announced plans to build the world’s first Audi R8 V10 stretch limousine.
Powered by a 5.2-liter V10 which provides 525 horsepower and 530Nm of torque, the Audi R8 V10 coupé accelerates from standstill to 100km/h in only 3.9 seconds, and has a top speed of 317km/h. These performance figures ensure the one-off stretched R8 will become the fastest limo in the world.
The British company is planning to slice the German sports car in half and add a few extra meters to accommodate eight people. The stretched R8 will feature leather-clad bucket seats and gullwing doors. Limo Broker states on their website:
The Audi R8 limo is the ideal choice of vehicle for people who want to make a statement so if you’re searching for a stand out limousine for your birthday bash, wedding, hen or stag party, then the stunning Audi RB limo is the only vehicle you need to consider.
At this moment the Audi R8 V10 Limousine is just a concept, but work on the car has already begun. The car is expected to hit the roads in the summer of 2012.
