WHAT options do you have when you want your supercar to be extra special? Well if the Audi R8 isn't special enough, the German prestige carmaker will bring 10 'Neuburg Edition' models to Australia.

Developed specifically for the Aussie market, it's powered by a 5.2-litre V10 engine which pumps out 449kW and 560Nm. That makes it capable of reaching 100kmh from standstill in 3.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of 330kmh.

To get one in your driveway you'll have to part with $402,500 plus on-roads. Each of the 10 models will wear an exclusive number.

The V10 is partnered to a seven-speed automatic trabsmission with all-wheel drive.

What makes this variant stand out from your run-of-the-mill R8 is the extra equipment.
