Call it a new car or not, Audi has made it official that their new Audi R8 GT3 that sports 550hp is going to be available to the market from autumn 2009.
“The R8 is the first production Audi bearing the name and genes of a successful racing sportscar and is therefore an excellent base from which to build up our first big customer sport program,” explains Head of Audi Motorsport Dr Wolfgang Ullrich.
Built on a rear-wheel-drive architecture, the new Audi R8 GT3 is looking even better and sports things like a rear wing, a full roll cage, heat extractors over the engine bay or a longer spoiler. But did we mention the performances? It runs on a new 6-speed sequential sports gearbox that takes the suspension components from the regular R8 and sports 550 hp?
