Fastest ever road-going Audi – The R8 GT



When the R8 was unveiled to the world in 2006, it blew people away with its supreme blend of everyday practicality and supercar power. Now, in 2010, Audi is planning something bolder and faster. Enter the Audi R8 GT. The GT version sheds 100 kgs of weight, with the V10 developing a better 552 bhp figure and 55 kgm of pure torque. That results in a 362 bhp/tonne figure, 0-100 kph in 3.6 sec and a near-320 kph top speed. Yes, as the headline says, it is the fastest road-going Audi ever.   To complete the GT, Audi put in some sinister touches to the bodywork. New carbon-fibre splitter, carbon fibre ‘sideblades’ and the customary rear diffuser certainly step up the game in the look department. Usually, the more the carbon fibre, the better!   And if that’s not enough for you, tick the race package option. Then, you’ll have a roll cage, four-point seat belts, fire extinguishers and a kill switch, all approved for both race and road use, for your weekend club racing. Only 333 will be made at approx. US$250,000 each. Go, GT one yourself today!
