Anyone fancy a Final Fantasy XV car for £372,324?

Not too long ago, the idea of a premium automotive brand associating with mainstream video games was fairly unlikely.

Times have changed, though. The social capital of nerd credz is becoming ever-more ubiquitous, and Audi is cashing in.

The German car manufacturer has produced a one-of-a-kind special edition of its R8 series car called “Star of Lucis”.

The vehicle previously featured in Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV and is now a real-life thing wot u can drive.

The website for the car lays on the fiction of “Audi meets Niflheim royalty” pretty thick.

“Audi proudly received a Royal Warrant from the Kingdom of Lucis in recognition of its automotive quality, performance and styling,” reads one of the sections.

“In commemoration of this honor, and to celebrate the 20th birthday of Prince Noctis, heir to the throne, Audi custom designed the Audi R8 Star of Lucis for the Prince.

“This gift reflects our heartfelt gratitude to the citizens of the Kingdom of Lucis and to the Royal Family, which has long supported the automotive industry. We hope it brings joy to the Prince, his family and friends for years to come.”

Just one thing to remember, though, Audi: the prince has another car that can fly. When you already own a sky-bound convertible, this clearly comes second best.

Only one Star of Lucis has been produced and it doesn’t come cheap. The car will be sold for 50,000,015 yen (£372,324), making it almost, but not quite, as expensive as the Final Fantasy XV Ultimate Collector’s Edition.

Demand for the car among super-rich nerds will likely be high, so Audi Japan is holding a raffle to determine which lucky soul will get the chance to purchase the one-off collector’s item.
