Audi R8 Limo
Billed as the world's fastest limousine, the Audi R8 stretch limo generated shockwaves across the globe when the video showcasing the design for the new limo was first unveiled online. Some loved it, others hated it, describing it as a sacrilege to cut an Audi R8 sports car in two and create an elongated stretch limo from the two halves. Whichever side of the fence you're on, we're sure you'll agree that the creation of the world's first Audi R8 limo is as intriguing as it is exciting.
The plans to create the Audi R8 limo were first announced at the annual Transport Broker Awards in January 2012. Over 250 invited guests from the luxury transport hire industry were gathered for the gala event in South Wales and were the first to see the 3D render video showcasing the design for the never-seen-before limo creation.
After the video's first public showing, it was uploaded onto YouTube where it soon went viral, attracting 250,000 hits less than 20 days after being posted online. News of the video spread like wildfire with the project attracting the attention of some of the biggest press publications in the world with leading US magazine, Forbes, featuring an article on the new Audi R8 limo, as well as other well known motoring publications, PistonHeads and Top Gear who also picked up on the exciting project.
Work is currently underway on taking the Audi R8 limo from the drawing board to the road. Bespoke vehicle manufacturers, Carbonyte UK, who famously created the world's only Ferrari limousine, have been enlisted to create the Audi R8 limo by The Transport Broker Group who are responsible for creating the design and concept for the new limo.
The one-of-a-kind Audi R8 limousine is expected to be completed by summer 2012 with bookings already being taken for Audi R8 limo hire for a range of occasions including school proms, product launches, weddings, corporate events and birthdays.
