Audi R8 Race Version Set for World Debut at Essen

Post by LhYnxz on Thu Nov 27, 2008 12:45 pm



Audi will use the Essen Motor Show which starts later this week to unveil
the motorsport version of its all conquering R8 sportscar.

"Ever
since the Audi R8 was unveiled we've been inundated with inquiries
about a race version. With the Audi R8, we will offer customers a
racing car packed with sophisticated technology and characteristic Audi
quality, but which is nevertheless easy to handle," says Head of Audi
Motorsport, Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich.

The four-wheel-drive system
found in the production version has been replaced with a more
conventional GT rear-wheel drive system to confirm with strict FIA
standards . It also features a newly developed six-speed sports
sequential gear box, a huge rear wing and a modified front end.

Additionally
the german premium car maker will use the press conference at Essen to
reveal its plans for the 2009 motorsport season which is expected to
include the R8's entrance into the GT3 category. Attendees will also
get the opportunity to see this year's Le Man winning R10 TDI and Tim
Schneider's DTM winning A4.
