AUBURN HILLS, MI – The Audi R8 will have what is being described as the world’s first full LED headlamp technology — but it is not coming to the
U.S. just yet, according to Audi. The optional LED headlamps, priced at the equivalent of $5,564, are available immediately in Europe.


Audi of America spokesman Christian Bokich told Inside Line in an e-mail message, “At the moment, no timing or availability info is yet available for the
United States, but it’s not being ruled out for our market.”


The new headlamp technology bundles full LED low/high beams, as well as full LED turn signals. Audi said it uses 54 high-performance LEDs.
