The "Ultrossic Black" car features "Advanced engineering from a higher realm." Its arabesque patterning (said to be the traditional pattern of the [[Tenebrae (Final Fantasy XV)|Tenebrae]] [[Oracle (Final Fantasy XV)|Oracle]] clan) and Lucis emblem wheels showcase the "design inherited from the gods." "An interior fit for the Prince" and "performance worthy of the future King" ensure the driver enjoys an exclusive experience. Should danger block the car's way, its "5.2-liter R8 V10 engine generates 610 PS," which endows the driver with "The power to foil monsters." Maximum speed is 330km/h.<ref>{{Refwebsitedead| page url = http://www.audi.jp/ff15/en/| page name = The Audi R8 Star of Lucis| site url = http://www.audi.jp| site name = Audi Japan| access time = 20161119020722}}</ref>
