Audi has unveiled a special limited-run ‘Green Hell’ version of its R8 supercar to celebrate its success in the Nurburgring 24 Hours.

Based on the R8 Performance coupe, and using the same 456kW naturally aspirated V10, the R8 Green Hell is designed to pay tribute to the R8 LMS GT car, which has won the endurance event at the German circuit five times since 2012.
