Audi R8 GT3 race car spied at the Nurburgring

Audi's motorsport division announced plans back in August to launch a 500hp-plus (373kW) version of the R8 for use in next year's GT3 series, and now a prototype for the race car has been spied testing at Germany's Nurburgring. The new car has been designed for private customer teams and fully conforms to the production-based GT3 regulations, which means they will be allowable in numerous national and international competitions. Because the GT3 regulations prohibit the use of AWD, the Audi R8 comes with a modified RWD powertrain and a newly developed six-speed sequential sports gearbox.
