    0-100km/h 3.9s

    0-200km/h 12.0s

    wet handling 1.37,7min

    1577kg(with navi and lots of options)

    Remark-after 997.2 GT2RS the best sportscar tested by Sport Auto.


    Re: Audi R8GT Supertest

    Another brilliant R8 model. However, my money would go to 458 evenif it is slower on the Ring.

    Extremely impressive for such a heavy car!

     


    Re: Audi R8GT Supertest

    Still...0-200 kph almost 2 seconds slower than 997 Turbo ? 

    I know, I know, it doesn't matter on the track but most people buy their cars for street driving, not track racing.

    Hmm, wonder why it's so slow in the straights. Aero?

    Nah, both the Gallardo and the 430 Scuderia have a single clutch and they are diabolically fast down the straights. Duble clutch is no better than a well executed single clutch...

    Double clutch is faster for take off. 911 Turbo S  is very fast for 0-200 km/h sprint, thanks to launch control of double clutch. I guess R8 GT time from 100-200 km/h is more impressive than its 0-200 km/h time.

    Re: Audi R8GT Supertest

    h. I guess R8 GT time from 100-200 km/h is more impressive than its 0-200 km/h time.

     

    8,1 secs for 100-200 isnt that impressive. the lp 560 with same engine was faster, at least on the supertest.

     

    But on Döttingerhöhe with 288 kmh the r8gt is as fast or faster than the sls, just a bit slower than a regular gt2. Somehow the acceleration on higher speeds seems to be ok


    Re: Audi R8GT Supertest

    AutoBild Sportscars test results: 1587 kg, 0-100 km/h in 3,7 s, 0-200 km/h in 11,2 s ... much better performance numbers.


    Re: Audi R8GT Supertest

    Thats just autobild.... Not the most serieus newspaper Given that the normal r8 v10 had 0-200 13 secs in the supertest the r8 gt is 1 sec faster in his supertest. That should be allright

    In terms of performance testing they're just as reliable as Sport Auto...

    Btw. they did 12,0 s with the R8 5.2 and 11,2 s with R8 GT

    Re: Audi R8GT Supertest

    if i remember well the r8 v10 had in the ams high speed test in nardo 46 secs up to 300kmh.

    on it's supertest the r8v10 had a high speed on Döttingerhöhe of 275kmh, the r8 gt was 288 km/h.

    compared with the nissan gtr (Döttingerhöhe 274kmh)  0-200 acceleration on supertest 13,1 sec  the timing of the r8v10 is more or less correct.

     

     


    Re: Audi R8GT Supertest

    Audi R8 GT review by Autocar...

    What is it?

    Just think about this for a second. This, the Audi R8 GT, is a £142,585 Audi.

    The GT is a limited-edition variant of the V10 Audi R8 coupe. Power is up to 552bhp at 8000rpm from 518 at 8000rpm, all via electronic wizardry. Torque is up only by 9lb ft to 398lb ft, at the same 6500, so any extra oomph will be found only at the top end.

    And it costs £142,585. Or, in the modestly optioned form of the car you see in these pictures, £159,315.

    It’s possible to add another £6640 on a half roll-cage and four-point harnesses. More still on a proper cage and heftier harnesses. At least carbon-ceramic brakes are standard.

    Only 333 are to be built, 33 are coming to the UK, and despite the price all are sold.

    What’s it like?

    There’s a lovely handling characteristic to the standard Audi R8 that is a pleasure to exploit every time you remember it’s there and have the opportunity to use it.

    It happens when the driver trails the brakes on corner approach and then inputs through the steering what is known in the industry – in strictly professional engineering terms, you understand – as “an almighty bung”.

    The R8 is agile and rear-biased in its weight and its power delivery. Its steering is accurate and direct and it has a limited-slip rear differential.

    As a result, there is little the R8 likes more than being chucked into a corner. It bites at the front, becomes loose at the rear, and all the inherent understeer you might expect of a 4wd car forgets to appear.

    In that respect the R8 is like a Mitsubishi Evo, only with more finesse, a pleasing sound, an acceptable ride and even more options on corner exit. It is so approachable and friendly, so adjustable and reliable and downright fun that somehow a hardcore variant – a GT3 RS or Makinnen edition, if you like – might not seem appropriate. It could upset the friendly demeanour.

    But, in the form of the R8 GT – I mentioned it’s £142,585, didn’t I? – here it is.

    The only gearbox available for the GT is the R-Tronic automated manual. Audi says this is because it wanted to finesse only one gearbox for the 333 cars and the R Tronic, globally, is more popular. I say that’s a shame.

    It’s a shame, too, that we’re still unable to try this car on the road in the UK because, despite it wearing a number plate, it was not yet registered.

    However, thanks to the slightly crumbled durability of wartime concrete to each side of the amusing new track at Blyton Park near Gainsborough, I can tell you that the R8 GT does not ride as cleverly as its standard stablemate. Presumably that will come as a surprise to precisely none of you.

    For the record, the GT wears passive springs and dampers that lower the body by 10mm over the standard car. Camber rates are upped, and the steering is even quicker, all to boost agility. Not that the R8 had a problem with that before.

    What results, though, is a delightful car to drive. The GT goes marginally better, still sounds excellent, and now stops without fatigue. It regains the agility that the V10 lost from the V8 R8, and adds more. Yet the inherent adjustability and playfulness of regular R8s remains, too. It’s rewarding to drive smoothly on a circuit, but it’s a bigger laugh to be a bit brutal with the inputs and really feel and exploit the mid-engined neutrality. Few supercars let you play so many games with the chassis.

    Should I buy one?

    Well, you can’t. But will you like it if you have? I would think so.

    Audi hasn’t turned the R8 into a Porsche Renn Sport clone but it has turned up the agility and amusement by a few worthwhile per cent all round. Whereas a Porsche 911 GT3 RS is an utterly different animal to a 911 Carrera 2, the R8 GT is like an R8 V10+.

    Those expecting more might be disappointed. Those who come without preconceptions, and holding a track-day rather than race-day outlook, will love it.

    Audi R8 5.2 V10 GT

    Price: £142,585; Top speed: 199mph; 0-62mph: 3.6sec; Economy: 20.3mpg; CO2: 327g/km; Kerb weight: 1525kg; Engine: V10, 5204cc, petrol; Power: 552bhp at 8000rpm; Torque: 398lb ft at 6500rpm; Gearbox: 6spd robotised manual

     yes, but that is likely a fact of the week euro. 150 000 sfr for a new r8v10 (autoscout24.ch) this ist 80 000 sfr below list price i guess....

    He but the sames is gonna happend with the sls

    Buy the way there are also gt2rs available for 180 000 euros, new (must be reimport from Danmakr into germany) but that is also super atractiv for us right now

    Same thing happends on 458 right now, we could get them way below list price..

    + 30HP / +8lb/ft Tq

    I would have preferred to see those numbers transposed for the values.

    No surprised there. Brand cache of Audi is lower than Lamborghini, even though both these cars are Gallardos. One with a different "hat" and badge.

    Audi R8 GT vs Audi R8 LMS supercar video...

    With a price of £145,645, a power output of 552bhp and a 0-62mph time of just 3.6 seconds the Audi R8 GT is the most extreme road-going version of the R8 to date. However, it’s not the most extreme version of the R8 that you can buy. That title belongs to the R8 LMS.

    In the same way that Porsche sells its RSR 911s, Audi is offering this GT3 race spec R8 to customers for around €300,000. To find out what it’s like, Marino Franchitti took us for a few laps around Blyton Park...
