The Audi R8 Star of Lucis, as it’s called, is the result of a collaboration between German carmaker and Square Enix, the developers of the Final Fantasy. The two debuted the customized vehicles in an unveiling earlier in 2016, teasing it’d soon become a reality.
The R8 sports a 610-horsepower, 5.2-liter V10 engine. The vehicle reaches zero to 100km/h (real quick) in an exhilarating 3.2 seconds and has a max speed of 330km/h.— the same engine as the standard Plus model — but features a variety of other cosmetic changes to separate it from your everyday R8 including custom rims style from the emblem of the Lucis and select body panels accented with a Arabesque design on a glossy black finish, the royal color.
Square Enix is offering the opportunity to purchase the car as part of the game’s November 29th launch. If you have the money, you can sign up over at the Audi Japan landing page for the car starting at November 21st.
Naturally, there are very few people who could purchase such a car, and fewer still who’d be interested in the Final Fantasy 15 connection the car has. But it seems Audi Japan is expecting at least a handful of interested buyers, as it is setting up a lottery system to choose the winner.
Audi Japan didn’t provide an end date for when the application will be closed, those planning to submit an application will want to do so as soon as possible on 21st November. Sometime after the applications are complete, likely a week or two, Audi Japan announce the winner of the car, who will still have to pay for the special edition vehicle.
