These are customer programs that turn a profit. They have works support, but these are cars that have been sold to customers. The Lamborghini is a heavily modified Audi R8 too - same engine in those cars.

They run races like Spa so they can sell these cars to rich businessmen who want to race. There are well over 200 Audi R8 LMS in the wild now. Similarly, there are over 100 RS3 TCR cars as well. The GT3 R8 sells for about $450,000...that's a lot of money.
