But the subject of this Audi R8 teaser is its laser headlight, which will not be offered as a standard feature.
Audi R8 laser headlight will be offered as a paid extra, as it is the 37-LED headlamp which is standard. The optional laser high-beam headlight will use high-intensity laser diodes for lighting up the road far ahead, with almost double the lighting range compared to LED high-beam headlamp.
