2015 Audi R8 LMX Review

The 2015 Audi R8 LMX  is a work of pure
perfection and this is the first production car to come with
laser beam headlights. One laser module per headlight
generates a cone of light with twice the range of the all-LED
headlight. A camera system is used to monitor the road ahead
and when it senses oncoming traffic, the headlight adjusts
its light pattern towards an oncoming vehicle.
