For the very first time, Audi Sports will manufacture a racing sports car specially designed for the costumers who want the more powerful GT3 version of the Audi R8. The Audi R8 will offer costumers a racing sports car equipped with high end technologies and the typical and luxurious Audi qualities.
However, because the GT3 regulations disallow the use of four-wheel drive, the Audi R8 GT3 will be developed with distinctive rear-wheel drive. And with newly developed six-speed sequential sports gearbox, a wide-ranging list of safety equipment guaranties the highest level of protection and with a V10 mid-engine capable of reaching 500 horsepower, this race car is very anticipated by professionals’ race car drivers all around the world.
This model will be available to purchase from autumn 2009. It will be manufactured together by Audi Sport and the Quattro GmbH, which is also accountable for the fabrication of the Audi R8 street version. The price is yet to be determined.
