The 2013 model might be just around the corner, but if you're down for one last hurrah with the current version, you'll be handsomely rewarded. The Audi R8 Exclusive Selection Edition ($138,000-$170,000) is likely the last 2012 model to roll onto U.S. shores. In addition to the normal — if you can call them that — 430 hp V8 and 525 hp V10 engines, these special editions offer Daytona Gray matte exterior with carbon fiber details for the V8 or Ibis White with Brilliant Black details for the V10, along with upgraded interiors offering more leather, contrast stitching, a Bang & Olufsen Sound System, Navigation with the Audi Music Interface, and added carbon fiber for the V10. Available with a six-speed manual or automatic R tronic transmission, if you want one you'd best hurry — only 30 V10 and 20 V8 examples are being produced.

His California isn't shiny like the Audi, but the matte red paint still makes this car pop off on the road. [See More]

It's been a little over a month since YMCMB rapper Tyga released his album Careless World - Rise of the Last King. The cover of the album is gold, his tour bus is gold, he wears gold chains an watches, and to celebrate the release of the album, Tyga purchased and customized an Audi R8, giving it a one-of-a-kind reflective gold paint job.
