2021 Audi R8 RWD Arrives With Ultra-Rare Panther Edition

The Panther edition brings some special content, including a full black leather interior with Crimson red stitching, racing shell seats in Crimson red Nappa leather, a sports exhaust, Alcantara steering wheel and parcel shelf, a diamond-stitched Alcantara headliner, a red 12 o’clock marker on the steering wheel, and exclusive R8 embroidered floor mats.

The R8 joins the 2019 RS5 Panther edition, which was limited to just 100 units in the US and included the same Panther Black crystal effect paint and red interior. Audi says only select dealers will receive the R8 Panther Edition, starting this December. Anyone who wants to nab one of the 30 examples will need to shell out $183,300, which is significantly more expensive than the base R8 RWD Coupe ($142,700), but far cheaper than last year’s R8 Green Hell Edition.
