This is the Audi R8 GT, a hardcore version of the popular German sports car! What is so special about this new version of the R8? Well, first of all we have a weight reduction of 100 kilograms (220.46 lb), which means the car weighs only 1,525 kilograms (3,362.05 lb).
The weight reduction was obtained using thinner glass, the bulkhead between the passenger cell and engine compartment, as well as the window in the rear hatch are made of strong, lightweight polycarbonate (these modifications brought a weight reduction of nine kilograms or 19.84 lb.
The new rear wing saved another 1.2 kilograms (2.65 lb), thinner sheet metal and additional cutouts shaved 2.6 kilograms (5.73 lb). The rear hatch is now made using carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) (6.6 kilograms or 14.55 lb. The rear bumper and sideblades using the same carbon fiber-reinforced plastic save another 5.2 and 1.5 kilograms (11.46 and 3.31 lb).
Under the hood we find the same V10 engine found on the R8 V10 5.2 Quattro but capable to develop 560 hp or 412 kW and 540 Nm (398.28 lb-ft) of torque at 6,500 rpm. With these numbers the car can hit 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds, 200 km/h (124.27 mph) in 10.8 seconds while the top speed is limited to 320 km/h (198.84 mph).
