Audi’s new GT3 race car already proved its prowess in May on clinching overall victory in the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring and two further podium places in the Spa 24 Hours in July. Effective immediately, customers can order the race car, which can deliver up to 585 hp depending on the regulations, at the price of 359,000 euros (plus VAT). In addition, Audi Sport customer racing offers the car including a starter and parts package for the total price of 398,000 euros (plus VAT).
On September 21, production of the new Audi R8 LMS will be launched, with deliveries commencing on October 26. Until the end of March 2016, Audi has scheduled production capacities for 45 GT3 race cars for the coming motorsport season. With that, the brand with the four rings sets the pace: the R8 LMS, as one of the first new models, corresponds to the GT3 regulations that will be in effect from 2016 until at least 2018, and thus sets new standards in terms of safety.
