Introducing the Audi R8 Limo Project
Audi R8 is the V10-powered limousine Frank Martin, of the Transporter trilogy, would drive – if getting a commercial license didn’t violate his cardinal rules of no names, no questions and never opening a package. As the hard-driving, Audi aficionado has learned, the temptation to open some packages is virtually irresistible.
The revealing of the video was part of the Transport Broker Awards, held at the Celtic Manor Resort in London last weekend. Over 250 owners, managers and executives from the luxury transport industry were on hand for the event.
Chris Wright of Carbonyte UK, the man behind the creation of the world’s only Ferrari stretch limo, was among several guests of honor at the gala and delivered an address outlining the Audi R8 limo project. Carbonyte UK will work with Limo Broker to create the first limo of its kind sure to be high in demand among the English city’s social elite. The video states flatly, this will be the fastest vehicle they have ever built.
It will no doubt be a status symbol among the driver’s as well. If the comfort, confidence and serenity of sitting behind the wheel of an Audi R8 continues through the passenger compartment, it will make whatever memorable event they’re attending all the more unforgettable.
Another aspect of the event involved the finals of the Miss Limo Beauty Pageant, naming 21-year-old student Gemma Roberts from the Vale of Glamorgan as winner. Roberts will become the face of the new Audi R8 Limo when the phenomenal new vehicle is launched by the end of summer this year.
Work has already begun on the gleaming white Audi R8 limo with form-fitting red sports seats and exquisite accommodations throughout. Double or triple gull wing doors will provide entrance and exit to the racy passenger compartment with lights on the door side walls to herald your arrival.
This brings up an interesting question – everyone wants to know who will build the next Town Car that will become the new standard in commercial executive transport. Could it possibly be Audi, surprising everyone?
