2014 Audi R8 GT expected to bow at the 2013 Le Mans 24 Hours

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 18, 2013

At this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race, Audi is preparing to unveil the facelifted version of the R8 GT. At least this is what Autocar says, but we will be there this weekend so you will get fresh photos with the new car if the British magazine is right.

The car, which was recently caught by spy photographers during testing at the Nurburgring race track, will be powered by an upgraded version of the 5.2-liter V10 engine.

Moreover, a six-speed manual gearbox will be offered as standard on the rear-drive GT, but Audi will offer an optional seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox as well as a four-wheel-drive version. The new Audi R8 GT is expected to zoom from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.4 seconds and will have a top speed of 199 mph or almost 320 km/h.

In terms of design, the new Audi R8 GT is expected to receive a more prominent front spoiler, larger air inlets and a new rear wing.

The new design seen on the brand new Audi R8 is also expected to be seen on the new R8 GT. Changes include new headlights and rear lights as well as minor cosmetic tweaks both inside and out.
