I recently looked at a slightly baffling and oddly-named special edition of the R8 – the Decennium Edition:
I noted that it had pretty striking performance and bold looks, and overall wasn’t a horrible deal if you liked the colors – which was a whole lotta black. To me, if I’m going to drop the pointy end of $200,000 on an Audi, though, I’d want a prettier color. Well, it turns out that probably to no one’s surprise, the Decennium Edition was not the only special R8 imported in 2020:

What’s so rare about these?
This edition is to commemorate the Quattro name. There are only 30 produced in the world, featuring all the technology from Performance models such as carbon fiber sway bar, variable exhaust system, and magnetic dampers. Also featured for the first time on an R8 in the U.S., the 20-inch wheels are finished in silver with red-painted brake calipers. The most unique exterior feature is the alu-optic side mirrors. Most Audi dealers could not get their hands on one.
The interior of the limited edition R8 features a three-spoke multifunction flat-bottom steering wheel with shift paddles. The steering wheel also contains four satellite buttons: engine start/stop, Audi drive select, Performance Mode selector, and Sport exhaust. These aren’t available on normal V10 Quattro models. The Pastel Silver Interior (which looks white) is super easy on the eyes.
History: I wasn’t planning on it, but after laying eyes on this color in person, I had to have it. I purchased the car brand new with 0 miles on it. Never been tracked or abused. Very meticulously taken care of and garaged. I do go thru a lot of cars and ready for my next toy. My new RS6 Avant is on its way in.
Thoughts: Having owned several and driven almost every sports car out there. This R8 takes the cake for the most well rounded performance/luxury/comfortable sports car out there. It is the most perfect balance of all worlds. This is one of the rare cars I did not have much to complain about. Around winding streets, this thing hugs the pavement like its on rails. Different driving modes are a huge convenience for when you want a nice quiet drive or turn on dynamic/performance mode to fully open up the exhaust and hear the sexy back fire!
Exterior: 9.9/10. Almost flawless. Entire front end wrapped in top of the line clear bra. 0 Scratches or dents
Interior: 9.9/10. Car still smells like brand new. Spectra Photosync Tint was added immediately after purchasing the car.
Wheels/Tires/Brakes: All in excellent working shape. Tires and brakes have usual wear for the mileage as expected.
Engine/Suspension: 10/10. Everything is in perfect working condition. I’ve owned several performance cars and this is the only car that hasn’t skipped a beat thru out the owner ship. Starts right up, shifts like butter.
Full Front Clear Bra: $2000
Full Spectra Photosync Tint: $700
Entire Car Ceramic Coated: $1500
Asking price = $173,990 obo.
It’s the only one for sale in the market and priced to sell quick.

So effectively, just like the Decennium, this one is mostly aesthetics. It’s a standard R8 V10 coupe, though of course they’re not slow. The $16,100 premium got you the ‘Mugello Blue Edition’ option, which added the eponymous paintwork, silver-finished 20″ wheels, a carbon-fiber front sway bar, a sport exhaust system, aluminum-optic mirror caps, red brake calipers, a bunch of carbon-fiber trim, and diamond-stitched extended leather – here finished in Pastel Silver. The result? WAY BETTER! This car pops and is very pretty, and I’d bet that it’ll stand the test of time much better than the all-black cliche that has haunted us recently. Plus, only 30 are claimed to have been made. Out the door this car was nearly $190,000, which was a lot cheaper than the still-unsold Decennium. With under 2k miles, you get a ~$15,000 discount. It’s still not a cheap car by any measure, but boy, it’s pretty as these things go…
I’m not shopping anytime soon, but this sure is pretty. Interior hints at one of the two available interiors on the 2002 Audi TT-ALMS:
Nice find, Carter!
Thanks, Buzz! And I agree, it does remind me of the TT ALMS edition as well!
Nice vanity tag. : )
