With the fifteenth edition of the much-revered Final Fantasy series set to drop in the next couple of weeks, Audi Japan has taken the memorabilia game to another level entirely by producing a one-off R8 to mark the release.
Game developer Square Enix initially joined forces with the automobile giant to design a “Star of Lucius” edition of the car to be featured in the CGI prequel film Kingsglaive. But now, thanks to the Japanese branch of the company, the bespoke ride has become a reality and will be auctioned for around $468,713 on November 21.
The R8’s side blades, air intakes, wing mirrors, and rear wing all feature Arabesque detailing, while the wheels incorporate rose petals in homage to the FF kingdom’s “finely sculpted swords.”
Stay posted for more information on the raffle and how to enter, and be sure to pick up a copy of Final Fantasy XV when it drops November 29.
