Extended customer programme for Audi R8 LMS

The new GT3 sports car from AUDI AG scored 23 victories and three champion’s titles in its first racing season in 2009.

Audi Sport will limit sales to a maximum of 20 vehicles for the European market in 2010. The first British-based team to run the R8 LMS, United Autosports, contests the FIA GT3 European Championship.

Meanwhile Audi will again support its customer teams at the Nürburgring 24 Hours (May 15/16).

The name of the R8 is legend: The R8 sports prototype won the Le Mans 24 Hours five times between 2000 and 2005 and celebrated 63 wins from 80 starts.

The first thoroughbred production sports car from Audi with the same name, the Audi R8 unveiled in 2006, carries the genes of the triumphant racing prototypes. Its many prizes awarded by juries and readers’ polls, in which the young R8 pulled away from reputable competitors, confirm its status as a dream sports car.

The R8 LMS bears a close resemblance to the production car and derived from a chassis taken from the production line.
