Mar 16, 2011

The newest member of the Audi sports car family was inspired by the Audi R8 LMS GT3 race car.

The GT makes extensive use of carbon fiber parts, making it about 180 lb lighter than the Audi R8 5.2 quattro coupe on which it’s based thanks to carbon fiber components such as the rear hatch, spoiler and diffuser. The modified 5.2-liter V10 engine develops 560hp, with a 0-62mph time of 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 199mph
 The axle load distribution of the R8 GT will be 43/57 front/rear. Integrated into the front differential is axle-load-optimized torque split with self-locking differential in the rear axle.

To convey its limited-edition status, the R8 GT will come with a variety of exclusive interior and exterior touches. Each car will have a numbered gearshift knob. The instrument cluster will be white with the R8 GT logo, and the interior will feature carbon matte inlays. The seats, headliner, steering wheel and handbrake lever will be black Alcantara with contrast stitching. Door sills will include aluminum inserts with the R8 GT logo.

On the exterior, the grille, distinctive side-blade and other trim parts will come in exclusive matte finishes. The Audi R8 GT will also be available in two exclusive new colors: Samoa Orange and a limited run of Suzuka Grey that apparently some dealers will not be able to order. Optional carbon-fiber reinforced ceramic brakes are available to provide fade-resistant stopping, while the brake calipers have a red anodized finish.
