The German car company- Audi has revealed their last piece of R8 GT with a V10 engine. Giving a conclusion to the series and fixing an end to the era. 

The R8 V10 GT RWD characterises an aerodynamic carbon fibre body, a blacked-out trapezoidal grille, four black rings, a front splitter, and sleek headlamps.

Covers for the side skirts and forged wheels of 20 inches flank it. An “R8 GT” badge graces the rear end.

The car was available in Matte Suzuka Gray, Tangorot Metallic, and Daytona Gray Metallic kind of jaw-dripping colours.

The Audi R8 V10 GT RWD is powered by a 5.2-litre, naturally aspirated V10 engine with 612 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque. A 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox and rear-wheel drive are paired with the mill.

The cabin of the four-wheeler is red-accented black. The Audi R8 V10 GT RWD has two seats, black bucket seats with red accents, seat belts, a plaque with an individual number under the gear lever, automatic climate control, and an armrest.

Along with ceramic brake discs, a carbonfibre-reinforced plastic front anti-roll bar, and aluminium coupling rods, a bespoke lightweight 20-inch wheel (optionally wrapped in hardcore Michelin Sport Cup 2 tyres) contributes to the car’s weight reduction of approximately 20 kilograms, bringing it to 1570 kilograms at the curb.

The new R8 is painted in matte Suzuka Grey as standard, just like the GT edition of the previous generation. It is distinguished from the standard model by black badges, carbon trim, red seatbelts, an Alcantara diamond headlining, and a build plaque in the centre console.

The latest connectivity options are included in the car’s touchscreen infotainment console.

Airbags, ABS with EBD, crash sensors, a parking camera, and a vehicle stability control system are just a few of the standard safety features.

In 2023, dealers will receive the Audi R8 V10 GT RWD. There will only be 333 cars for sale. The prices in Germany will begin at €225,000 (roughly Rs.1.8 crore).

The Audi R8 V10 plus was the car people drove in the launch issue of Evo India nine years ago. The audience was sad to see its production end with the R8 V10 GT RWD because, in a few years, no one will no longer be talking about V10 symphonies.
