If the Audi R8 super car wasn’t fast for you, then check out the 2011 Audi R8 GT which has gone on a bit of a diet, and had its engine beefed up. The 2011 Audi R8 GT now has the same power as the Lamborgini Gallardo LP560, with a massive 560 HP and 398 lb-ft of torque.
It has also had a number of weight saving modifications, including thinner glass, more polycarbonate parts, and as much weight as possible has also been shaved off the aluminum body, which means it has had a weight drop down to 3,582 pounds.
There are no details as yet on what the modifications add to the top speed and what they take off the o-60 times. Of course the 2011 Audi R8 GT will command a premium over the standard R8 with a price tag of 193,00 Euros about $255,000.Filed Under: Design News, Technology News
