Audi has created a special R8 V10 Spyder to raise funds for the Elton John Aids Foundation (EJAF).

Auctioned off late last night, at the White Tie and Tiara Ball charity event, the special model was a star attraction as its mirror-like finish garnered plenty of interest.

According to Jeremy Hicks, Director of Audi UK, "Sir Elton John's fundraising ball really is a golden ticket event that is as glamorous as it is hugely effective in fundraising terms. We are delighted, and enormously proud, to support it for a ninth year with the donation of what is arguably our most fittingly glamorous model."
