For 2010 season Audi has revised its handsome GT3 race car, the R8 LMS, and presents the Evolution model which is enhanced in many ways.

The new model comes with an upgraded engine cooling system and it also has optimized electronics and exhaust system. Furthermore the chassis and suspension are tweaked and it’s fitted with a newly developed six-speed racing transmission.

Despite its hefty price tag of 298,000 Euros, Audi says that the R8 LMS 2010 is completely sold out. British-based American team United Autosport was the first to pick their car.

“During our evolution project we primarily focused on service life and maintenance-friendliness,” explains Head of Audi Motorsport Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich. “All the experience we gathered last season with the help of our partners has been fed into the evolution-version. We’re convinced that we’re handing over a reliable and easy to handle vehicle to our customers that embodies the high quality standards of the Audi brand.”
