    Audi Begins Deliveries Of The R8 LMS GT2; Just In Time For Christmas

    Christmas came a few days earlier this year! Audi started deliveries of its 2020 R8 LMS GT2. So, if you placed an order for the race car you should get it shortly!

    The R8 LMS GT2 is based on the Audi R8 Spyder V10 performance quattro and delivers a total of 640 horsepower. This output makes it the most powerful model ever to have been offered by Audi Sport customer racing.

    The price of the R8 LMS GT2 is an impressive 338,000 euros (excluding VAT). It can be fielded in the GT2 Sports Club America, the GT2 Sports Club Europe and the GT2 Sports Club Asia starting in 2020.

    The race car is largely produced at Böllinger Höfe at the Neckarsulm location. Only the operational pre-delivery preparation is performed by Audi Sport customer racing at the Heilbronn district of Biberach. Customers receive the race car in Suzuka-Gray including the tapered black glossy roof that is characteristic of the GT2 version.

    “With the Audi R8 LMS GT2 we’re opening up a new chapter in our history,” says Chris Reinke, Head of Audi Sport customer racing. “Starting in 2020, the GT2 class will enhance the world of GT racing by another valuable new category that immediately got a foothold on three continents. In addition, the race car is ideally suited for track days. In spite of its very specific concept design there are many things it has in common with the production model. They allow us to closely integrate the manufacturing process, which we are very proud of.”
