Audi Sport launched the new R8 LMS GT2 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed over the weekend, joining Audi Sport’s race car lineup which includes the R8 LMS GT3, R8 LMS GT4, and the RS3 LMS.
The car will compete in the GT2 class of the Stéphane Ratel Organisation (SRO), and uses a purpose built variant of the 5.2-liter, V10 found in the R8 V10 Performance road car. While the road car makes 612-horsepower, the R8 LMS GT2 makes an incredible 630-horsepower.
Weight has also been reduced to just 2,976 pounds, making the R8 LMS GT2 a full 220-lbs lighter than the R8 LMS GT4 race car.
Audi Sport has begun taking orders on the R8 LMS GT2, which starts at €338,000. We can’t wait to see this monster on the track.
