You will need USD 470,000 to buy Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy’s Audi R8
So, you wanna become the ultimate video game merchandise collector?
If you have watched Final Fantasy XV’s companion movie Kingsglaive then perhaps you were part of the ones who were left in awe of the gorgeous CGI rendition of the Audi R8 which was called the “Star of Lucis”. Even back during the announcement of Final Fantasy XV fans, especially ones with really, really deep pockets have long been wondering if a real life version will be produced by Square Enix, developer of the Final Fantasy franchise and its partners and right now it looks like there may just be one lucky Final Fantasy fan to make himself or herself an owner of a bonafide video game luxury vehicle.
That’s right, only one.
The Star of Lucis, originally thought to be an Audi R8 plus Coupé 5.2 FSI quattro but is now revealed to be based on the 2016 model of the Audi R9 V10, is reported to have one consumer model created by Audi and will be sold to one lucky owner via lottery. The luxury car will also bear a price tag of USD 469,000 which is more than 3 times the original price of an Audi R9.
If you have a pocket deep enough to own one, and if you think that your luck can also help you fulfill your dream of owning the world’s only real life Star of Lucis then you can participate in the lottery once the registration website opens up this November 21, 2016.
