Released in May 2010 the Audi R8 GT is the fastest Audi to date. The weight of the R8 GT has been reduced by 100 kg to 1,525 kg. The power from the 5.2liter V10 has also been increased to 552 bhp which gives the car 362 bhp per ton. Because of these changes the R8 GT has a top speed of 320 km/h and goes from 0-60 in 3.6 seconds, 0.3 faster than the R8 V10. The car also features some visual changes including red brake caliper covers, a fixed rear wing, front bumper mounted winglets and GT badges replacing the V10 ones. Only 333 Audi R8 GTs will be made (or has been made to date).
Anyway, the R8 GT lapped the Nurburgring in 7minutes 34seconds, which is actually a second slower than the latest 444bhp 3.8liter Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The lap time is also slower than Porsche's monstrous 612bhp 911 GT2 RS which Von Saurma did in 7minutes 24seconds. The supertest of the R8 GT is featured in the December 2010 issue, which is already on sale over in Germany.
So, are you still dreaming of that R8 GT or are you now back again with Team Porsche?
