Audi R8 Coup GT, 620 hp and 320 km / h for the new exclusive supercar

The future of the Audi R8, as we know, will likely be electric. Meanwhile, the House of Four Rings has decided to introduce the new R8 Coupe GT. This is the most powerful rear-wheel drive car the German brand has ever made. It will be built in a limited series. In all, Audi will produce 333 numbered models. In Italy, this supercar is expected to appear in the second half of 2023. The price of the Italian market has not yet been officially determined. Design and interior The new Audi R8 V10 GT can be recognized by a custom body kit. In fact, Audi has developed a special set of aerodynamics in carbon fiber that allows you to increase downforce values. The package includes splitters, blades at the ends of the front bumper, side skirts, ailerons behind the rear wheel arches, an extractor and a spoiler with gooseneck mounts. This sports car can also count on 20-inch 10-spoke forged wheels, derived from racing and can be combined with Michelin Sport Cup 2 semi-slippery tyres. For example, we find the red color of the belts. The GT logo is featured on the mats and seats. The serial number, which identifies the model, is located in the center of the tunnel, along the carbon coating near the transmission selector lever. Audi Matrix LED headlights with Audi laser light and housings also feature as standard on this exclusive car. Side mirrors, carbon V10 bonnet, Bang & Olufsen audio system with woofers in the headrests and dynamic steering that adapts the gear ratio according to driving speed. Thanks to the extensive use of carbon fibres, the new Audi R8 V10 GT is 20 kg lighter than the car that forms its technical basis, the Audi R8 Coupé V10 Performance RWD. On the scales, 1,570 kg Engine and Performance The heart of the new Audi R8 V10 GT is a naturally aspirated V10 with a displacement of 5.2 liters, capable of delivering a good 620 hp (50 hp more than the Performance version from which it is derived.) . The engine torque is 565 Nm, the gearbox is a 7-speed S tronic dual clutch. The Audi R8 Coupé V10 GT RWD accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and reaches 200 km/h in 10.1 seconds. The maximum speed is 320 km / h. The traction control system, integrated into the ESC’s electronics, provides 7 settings that can be activated via the selected satellite on the steering wheel: Level 1 ensures minimal grip losses, while Level 7 leaves the driver’s ability to manage the abundance of thrust. The rear torque system, in addition to traction control, affects the delivery of the V10, and is optimized according to information provided by the sensors to detect speed, steering angle, throttle pressure and gear shift. This sports car can also rely on carbon thermo-brakes as well as an aluminum-carbon anti-roll front bar mixed with thermoplastic polyurethane (CFRP). The latter is equipped with longitudinal coupling arms in red anodized aluminum. As an option, stiffer springs and GT-specific shock absorbers with adjustable compression, rebound and preload are available.
