Audi has announced that it is bringing laser lights to the US on the 2017 Audi R8 and the car maker will be showing these new lights off at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The new laser lights will be available on the 2017 Audi A8 V10 Plus exclusive edition at first, have a look at the video below.
Each headlight contains one laser module that operates with four high intensity laser diodes. Each module bundles these diodes into a blue laser beam with a wavelength of 450 nanometers. A phosphor converter then transforms the blue laser beam into a very bright and pure white light. The R8 exclusive edition is also the first Audi vehicle to couple the laser light with dynamic front turn signals.
Audi laser light is the latest production technology in a long line of lighting innovations from the four rings. Audi pioneered LED technology with daytime running lights on the Audi A8 L W12 in 2004 and all-LED headlights on the R8 in 2008. Lighting innovations such as dynamic turn signals, Matrix LED headlights (not available in the US) and now laser high beams are prime examples of how Audi continues to set an industry standard for automotive lighting technology.
Audi will release just 25 units of the Audi A8 V10 Plus exclusive edition in the US and each one with costs $229,200, you can find out more information over at Audi at the link below.
