    Audi R8 GT - road car

    OK. Got totally caught by surprise when I received a photo pack from Audi UK yesterday on the new R8 GT road car, complete with a letter inviting me to register my interest.

    v10 560 bhp, 100 Kg lighter than standard v10.

    Only 333 being built, with 33 coming to UK at 142K (better than EUR 193 for Europe).

    R-Tronic only.

    Deliveries from the spring.

    Anyone else going to look at it ????

    SWEEEET...but what is that on the mirror pods? Those winglets are too easy of an upgrade. I want 'em. No need for a splitter I guess.. And 560 normally aspirated while 220 lbs lighter than the standard V 10 ...sounds "out of controll" !! This monster is 2 wheel drive??

    The new R8 GT is also AWD. All R8 street cars are AWD. Only the full racing model, the LMS R8, is 2 wheel drive. And it is NOT street legal.

    Only comes in R-tronic, but I've heard it's updated to LP560 spec more or less, and I'm guessing improved. I don't imagine they'd put a lesser gearbox in their top of the line hardcore version, so I'm guessing the R-tronic is actually better than manual.

    I honestly would prefer a manual. Not because I'm better with shifting that a computer, but I simply enjoy it. Oh well.

    What's the purpose of reviving a 2 and a half year old thread?
