World`s first all-LED headlights for Audi R8

Lexus is left behind by Audi who’s offering the world’s first all-LED headlights for its new R8 sports auto. Unlike the Lexus’ flagship units LS 600h saloon, with LED lights for the low-beam projectors, the new Audi lights has efficient diodes for the high and low beams as well running lights and turn signals in daytime.

Peculiar LEDs, of which there are 54 for every headlight, the group with small clusters gave designers more freedom as the place for diodes can be arrange and patterned in an unconventional way.
More natural looking light, smaller overall size, lower power usage (6 Watts for runners during the day and 50 Watts for low beam) and much longer lifespan are only a few of LEDs benefits.
