The new Audi R8 LMS Track driving

Description

The GT3 version of the Audi R8 LMS has been making history in customer motorsport and particularly on the Nürburgring since 2009. In the first three years between 2009 and 2011 the racing car took the GT3 class victory at the 24 Hours on the Nürburgring at each outing. In 2012, 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2019 it won the overall standings. This tally makes Audi the most successful GT3 manufacturer in the Green Hell in this era. To date, the series-production-based racing car has a total of 13 overall victories to its name at 24-hour races in Dubai, Spa, Zolder and on the Nürburgring. The model has performed equally well in many other race series: Since 2009, two generations of the Audi R8 LMS have won 75 overall driver titles and secured 96 other championship placings around the globe.

  • Audi R8 in Kemora Grey Driving on the track

    Instant response, lightning-fast high-revving and a unique sound - the heart of the Audi R8 is its V10 naturally aspirated engine. It is available to customers in two output ratings. The almost identical drive technology of the V10 engine in the R8 LMS GT3 and R8 LMS GT4 is put to good use on the racetrack. The V10, which is produced at the engine plant in Gyor, Hungary, is very compact. A separate radiator controls the temperature of the engine oil, which comes from a dry sump. This principle was adopted from motor racing and allows for an extremely low installation position of the engine, producing a low center of gravity. The pump module operates with multiple suction stages and assures proper lubrication under all conditions - including during lateral acceleration of around 1.5 G, which is possible in the R8. Both engines have a gasoline particulate filter.Modifications to the suspension provide even more stability and precision. The assistance has been retuned both with the optional dynamic steering and the electromechanical power steering: Steering response and the feedback from the road come across as even more precise across the entire range of speeds.Depending on the selected engine, the three additional programs dry, wet and snow are added to the well-known Audi drive select modes with the performance mode. They adapt the key dynamic parameters to the friction coefficient of the road. Thanks to the enhanced Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC), the top-of-the-line model brakes from 100 km/h (62.1 mph) to a standstill up to 1.5 meters (4.9 ft) earlier; the stopping distance from 200 km/h (124.3 mph) is up to five meters (16.4 ft) shorter - in each case depending on the exterior conditions.

  • Audi R8 Spyder V10 RWS Driving demo on the track

    Born on the racetrack. Built for the road. The Audi R8 Coupe sets standards: with a power output of 540 hp, a top speed of 320 km/h and an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds, the top variant, i.e. the Audi R8 V10 plus, delivers stunning performance, which is further underlined by its even more honed design. There is no doubt that the Audi R8 Coupe has motorsport in its genes.

  • Audi R8 Coupé V10 RWS Driving demo on the track

    Audi R8 Coupe V10 RWS is certainly the most purist-oriented second-generation R8. Planned for a run of just 999 units, it packs 540 horsepower. That power—which matches that of the base R8 V10 Quattro but is shy of the 610 horsepower of the R8 V10 Plus—is churned out by the awesome, naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V-10. No all-wheel drive means both less weight and less mechanical drag in the powertrain. Compared with the regular all-wheel-drive R8, its curb weight is down by 110 pounds to 3505 pounds, according to Audi, while the company’s claimed weight for the Spyder version is 3704 pounds, down 88 from the Quattro model. Visually, the R8 RWS is signified by a matte-black grille, matte-black front and rear airflow openings, and a gloss-black upper side blade on the coupe. A red vinyl trim stripe that stretches from the front left to the right rear is optional on the coupe. Sport seats are standard, as are black 19-inch wheels wrapped in 35-series rubber. Audi says the sprint to 62 mph takes 3.7 seconds (3.8 in the Spyder), and top speed is claimed to be 199 mph on the coupe and 198 mph on the Spyder. That acceleration time lags behind Audi’s claims for the Quattro-equipped R8 by 0.2 second in both cases; top speed is unchanged.
