Short story of how this color came to be on the Western Suburbs of Chicago:
Audi exclusive is a division within Audi that offers a number of customizations and colors that can make the model of your choice with the four rings truly yours and one of a kind. Continental Audi had a client order a quite interesting shade of orange called Aventurine Orange (factory code 2487) on an S5 Coupe about 3 years ago. The looks of that car have sparked somewhat of a cult following locally, as two more clients selected that as the color of their choice on S5 Cabrios, one featuring Cognac Napa leather interior.
In the latest display of this spectacular shade of “burned orange” with Mica effect, the Aventurine Orange graces the pinnacle of Audi engineering – the R8 V10 Performance. Outfitted with every carbon option available, including the front sway bar, adding black emblems and anthracite finish milled design wheel, this R8 is a stunner.
