Audi Joins GT4 Circuit With R8 LMS GT4
Well well it seems Audi felt left out of the GT4 party as they have just taken the covers off their R8 LMS GT4.
As you can see, it is directly derived from the road-legal V10 R8 and is actually made up of around 60% of the same components. Power from the naturally-aspirated V10 engine will sit at around 495 hp and production of customer-ordered examples will commence in the second half of the year.
Audi Sport boss Stephan Winkelmann said “Audi Sport GmbH is one of the leading manufacturers offering cars in the GT3 and TCR customer sport categories. Now we’re targeting the GT4 class at exactly the right time. These fast-growing business segments and the DNA shared by our race cars and production vehicles underscore our ambition to become a true global player in the high-performance league.”
The new GT4-spec race car will debut at Nurburgring 24 Hours from May 25 to 28.
