The GT Audi 'device' at the Paris show

I have to say that Audi concept 'R8' GT car unveiled at Paris motorshow looks a bit of a belter eh what?

Is this another car that might makes it's way to GT's, possibly as a GT3 contender in a couple of years?

It is a shame (from a marketing POV) that they have waited until the R8 has retired to associate with the name.

It has been testing quite a bit, often with Lambo wheels I think. How related is it to the Lambo (only guessing).

It's not a concept - it's yours for a mere £75k. Deposits being taken at Audi dealers, first deliveries in June.

And yes, it looks as mean as hell!

75k is a bit steep, what engine does it have?

It looks more like a touring car than a GT car. IMO. Something at last to replace the ageing Audi TT?

Um, er, no.

The road going R8 as seen at Paris is a £75k GT car aimed at the 911/Aston V8 market, due to hit our shores early in the new year I think.

The "ageing Audi TT" has just been replaced by a new TT, already in Audi showrooms across the land.



In more breaking motoring news, we learn the Morris Marina is to be replaced by the Ital...

By the way, as the R8 is a road car, that's where I'll move this thread...

wow, fantastic video, it's realized very accurately, the R8 is cool, looks futuristic, though it reminds me a bit of murcy and gallardo

But why did they call it R8? Surely that's just going to confuse people! Why not R9??
