​Spotted! An Audi R8 in Final Fantasy XV teaser!

Final Fantasy XV: Kingsglaive’s teaser has been out since March this year but we just found out that the R8 in the teaser actually coming to life!


Admit it, the Regalia R8 in the teaser of Kingsglaive caught your attention. There were a number of cars featured in the teaser and amongst a number of cars that looks suspiciously like something that will come out of Bugatti’s stables, the R8 stands out from the rest.

The Audi in Kingsglaive is an Audi R8 Plus Coupe 5.2 FSI Quattro powered by a V10 direct injection engine with four valve technology. The car is capable of 610bhp at 8250rpm and 560Nm of torque at 6500rpm. The engine is mated to a seven-speed S-Tronic gearbox and will power to a century in 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 330kph.
But Audi did not have a hand in designing the Regalia in the movie, the custom design is was created at Square Enix by director Takeshi Nozue and designer Kenji Kini. Word is the Square Enix and Audi are in talks to collaborate and bring the Regalia R8 to life.

The car was premiered on the same day as the premiere of the Final Fantasy XV: Kingsglaive movie. It’s going to be a one-off and Square Enix has not yet decided what they will do if and when the Regalia R8 comes to life. Perhaps they will sell it to the highest bidder or perhaps they will be kind to all Final Fantasy fans and put it on display all over the world. If they decide to display the car at a Motor Show, it will definitely help drive more traffic to the show.

You can watch the Regalia R8 in action in the companion CGI movie Final Fantasy XV: Kingsglaive. The movie stars the voices of Aaron Paul as Nyx, Lena Headey as Luna and Sean Bean as King Regis. 

Meanwhile, here’s another angle of the Regalia R8 for you to admire.
