Audi Sport R8 LMS Cup GT3 champion gets this one-off R8

For the first time in Audi Sport R8 LMS Cup history, the 2018 GT3 champion will drive away with a unique Audi R8 Coupé V10 RWS. The rear-wheel powered masterpiece was presented by Michael-Julius Renz, Chairman of Audi Sport GmbH during Germany’s Nürburgring 24 Hours race, where drivers, teams and guests in the exclusive Audi race hospitality got a first look at the most valuable prize ever awarded in the Cup’s seven year history.

“This bespoke Audi R8 Coupé V10 RWS is a one-of-a-kind model which can only be owned by winning the Audi Sport R8 LMS Cup’s GT3 category, it’s truly a prize that money can’t buy,” said Martin Kuehl, Director of Audi Sport customer racing Asia.

Produced exclusively by hand and powered by a mid-mounted V10 engine with 397 kW (540 hp), the high-performance sports car shines in antique gold metallic. The new Audi exclusive colour makes its debut with the prize. Many Audi Sport Performance parts are included, such as elements of the carbon Aerokit, sport wheels, brake linings, adjustable suspensions and a steering wheel in Alcantara black. The sporty-yet-luxurious theme carries through to the interior of fine nappa leather, and elegant decorative inlays. R8 heated buckets seats, state-of-the-art stainless-steel brake pedals and footrests, and personalised door sills create a rarefied environment.

Built-in intuitive management from the MMI Navigation system with MMI touch®, Audi smartphone interface for Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto, and cruise control make this the ideal car for a champion’s day off.

Having now set eyes on the magnificent Audi R8 prize, the Audi Sport R8 LMS Cup’s exclusive privateer field will be all the more voracious when the season continues in September at China’s Ningbo.
