Audi R8 GT

Now even more dynamic, lighter, more powerful and faster: Audi is launching a limited-production version of its R8 high-performance sports car – the R8 GT. The output of its 5.2-liter V10 has been increased to 560 hp; vehicle weight has been reduced by roughly 220.46 lbs. The R8 GT accelerates from zero to 62.14 mph in 3.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 198.84 mph. The efficient direct-injection engine consumes only 13.9 liters of fuel per 16.92 US mpg on average. The engineers have reduced the weight of the Audi R8 GT drastically once again compared to the R8 5.2 FSI quattro. With quattro permanent all-wheel drive (and without a driver), the Audi high-performance sports car tips the scales at just 3,362 lbs, for a power-to-weight ratio of only 6 lbs. per hp. In addition to the aluminum Audi Space Frame body, a number of new components made of carbon fiber composite play a decisive role in the car’s low weight. The R8 GT is a driving machine with breathtaking lateral acceleration and lightning-fast, nearly instantaneous reactions. The 19-inch wheels keep the car planted firmly on the asphalt, and the carbon fiber ceramic brakesBrakesA vehicle's brakes must be matched to its power, weight, and top speed. Brakes easily keep the power under control. The R8 GT gives a whole new meaning to the term “high-performance sports car.”
