Audi R8 GT Release

Audi of America has recently announced the arrival of the all-new Audi R8 GT, paying tribute to the first-generation Audi R8 GT from 2012. This limited production vehicle is exclusive to America and only 150 units will be available, all numbered and with unique content. Our team at Audi Englewood could not be more excited about this new model release and we had to share it with you. In this article, we will dive into the exciting new features of this special edition R8 and highlight its impressive performance.

Audi R8 GT Performance

?If you’re a fan of the Audi R8 models, you know its all about power and performance, so let’s cut right to the chase. The Audi R8 GT is the most powerful rear-wheel-drive (RWD) Audi ever produced. That is saying something, given that this is Audi we are talking about. The all-new Audi R8 GT is equipped with a 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 engine, which produces an impressive 640 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque. This engine is nearly identical to the R8 LMS racecar engines, with the only changes being made to comply with production and street laws. The vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds and has a top speed of 206 mph. The R8 GT also has a 7-speed Stronic dual-clutch automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

For the first time ever, Audi Sport GmbH is offering a Torque Rear mode on the R8 – now let us explain that one. According to Audi, “Drivers can access seven characteristic curves stored in the traction control system (ASR) offering different levels of support - Level 1 provides maximum support with reduced engine torque, which leads to a low level of wheel spin, while Level 7 provides only minimum support with increased engine torque, which leads to a high level of wheel spin.” This added performance feature is something one would expect from a racecar, not a production vehicle, but nevertheless it’s technology and “cool” factor is unmatched.
