Audi Hands Over First R8 GT to Customer from UK

Audi Hands Over First R8 GT to Customer from UK

Source: Audi | Published: Wed Apr 20, 2011

The first of 333 Audi R8 GT vehicles has hit the road. A customer from the UK received the keys for his Phantom Black high-performance sports car today at the Audi Forum in Neckarsulm, Germany.

The limited-edition, top-of-the-line model of the R8 family is built in a production shop at the Neckarsulm site and was sold out worldwide just a few weeks after market launch. The 560 hp R8 GT will be delivered to customers in 23 countries, primarily in Europe, the United States and Middle Eastern markets.

The R8 GT takes 3.5 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph and 10.8 seconds to reach 124 mph.  The 5.2-liter V10 in the R8 GT now has an increased output of 560 hp. The mid-engine sports car never loses its composure as it delivers its power to the road via quattro permanent all-wheel drive and the lightning-fast shifts of its R tronic transmission. The Audi R8 GT has a top speed of 199 mph (320 km/h).

In the US, the base price of the Audi R8 GT was $198,050. That's about 1/4 less than in Germany (193,000 EUR).

Average fuel consumption is 13.9 liters per 100 kilometers (16.92 US mpg).
