Audi has just unveiled the R8 LMX – the world’s first production car with laser high beams. The R8 was the first production car to boast all-LED headlights back in 2008, with the updated supercar now offering advanced options with the newly added laser high beams. Generating twice the range of light as the all-LED headlights, a blue laser beam is converted into roadworthy white light that only becomes active at speeds higher than 60 km/h, while a sensor system detects other cars and adjusts the light accordingly. Boasting 570 horsepower and 0-100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, the R8 LMX will be released this summer and can be ordered now.
