The combination of LED and laser high beam lighting was used for the first time on the new Audi R18 e-tron quattro at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race last year.

'Audi is thus continuing its tradition of using racing to test new technologies destined for production. The limited-edition Audi R8 LMX is the first production car in India to come equipped with laser high beam lighting, a particularly brilliant innovation integrated in a sports car,' Kind added.

He said with the launch of this new model the company will be able to further enhance its position in the Indian market, where it sold 10,851 units crossing the 10,000 milestone for two years in succession.
