Audi recently took the wrap off the latest edition of the mighty R8, which is tarted up limited edition called the GT.

This model is based on the V10-powered R8, but it packs more power and it’s lightened and stiffened up. Thanks a great number of adjustments, the R8 GT is 100 kg lighter than the normal model, and that not only makes it faster but also more joyful to drive.

Then there’s the engine, a 5.2 liter V10 which is tweaked to give 560 hp. That enables the car to go from zero to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 320 km/h.
