Audi R8: The ultimate comparison!

Audi R8 Grand-Am, Audi R8 GT, Audi R8 5.2 quattro, Audi R8 5.2 quattro Spyder, Audi R8 4.2 quattro, Audi R8 4.2 quattro Spyder

Road&Track has the ultimate comparison between the Audi R8 Grand-Am, the Audi R8 GT, the Audi R8 5.2 quattro, the Audi R8 5.2 quattro Spyder, the Audi R8 4.2 quattro and the Audi R8 4.2 quattro Spyder. Awesome!

For this track skirmish, we’re pitting the fastest production Audi, the 560-bhp R8 GT, against the newly homologated rear-drive-only R8 Grand-Am, a race car closely related to the FIA-spec R8 LMS, an internationally successful car powered by an air-restricted V-10 that makes 480 bhp. While both are handbuilt at Quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm, Germany, how they get around the track will once again illustrate the differences between an exceptionally fast road car and a purpose-built race car. Or will it?
