Audi R8 GT Plus: Unveiling at 24h of Le Mans!

Audi R8 GT Plus

The recently spied Audi R8 GT Plus will be unveiled at the 24 hours of Le Mans.

Audi is sending the first-gen R8 out with a bang as a GT Plus variant will probably be revealed at this year’s Le Mans race scheduled for next weekend. It will come with a revised V10 5.2-liter engine packing more than the 552 bhp (412 kW) / 398 lb-ft (540 Nm) of the 2010 R8 GT. The rear-wheel drive version will come with a six-speed manual gearbox, while the all-wheel drive model is set to get a dual-clutch, seven-speed automatic transmission.
The 2013 Audi R8 GT Plus fitted with the dual-clutch gearbox should sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.4 seconds, making it 0.2s faster than its predecessor. Top speed will probably remain the same at 199 mph (320 km/h).
