Recent models including the R8, TT, A4 and A3 have featured the daytime running lights but now the German's have gone one step further by introducing the first full-LED headlamp which will be available first on none-other than the R8.

The LED headlights featured on all new Audi models has become very much part of their front end signature styling, without them, it just wouldn't been an Audi. Recent models including the R8, TT, A4 and A3 have featured the daytime running lights but now the German's have gone one step further by introducing the first full-LED headlamp which will be available first on none-other than the R8.

The 54 high-performance LED lights provide lighting for both daytime and night-time driving and represents the pinnacles of Audi's lighting strategy. LED technology uses less power and other road users doesn't get those glaring bright spots in their eyes as with conventional lighting systems.

Audi first presented the full-LED headlamps in the Nuvolari quattro concept back at the Geneva Motor Show in 2003 and joins the line of technologies incorporated into the R8 along with the aluminium Audi Space Frame, ceramic brakes and the mid-mounted V8 engine with FSI technology.

The new option is available immediately and comes at a whopping price of €3,590.
