With the announcement of the first ever laser lights featured in the 2017 R8 V10, Audi has accomplished the unimaginable. At the 2016 Auto Show in Los Angeles, Audi debuted the Audi of America. The exclusive R8 takes full advantage of the LED headlights, which now include a laser high beam module in each headlight. The laser modules operate with four high intensity laser diodes bundling those diodes into a blue laser beam. Being as powerful as it is, the laser beam successfully performs a wavelength of 450 nanometers. Making the laser the color that it is, a phosphor converter transforms the blue laser beam into a bright and clear white light. Enhancing the vision of the driver, the headlights project the light low and wide rather than centered like the average vehicle. The brand continues to make owning an Audi pleasurable as well as luxurious.
