The Audi R8 GT has barely even been introduced to everyone and already it is making its appearance known. In fact, some lucky Audi lovers caught the appearance on camera! The pictures were taken in Monaco and they clearly show the R8 GT in all of its glory and burning with a bright orange paint job. Now, we can add Samoa Orange to the list of colors we have actually seen on the R8 GT. The Audi will be produced in a choice of four colors: Samoa Orange, Phantom Black, Ice Silver, and Suzuka Gray Metallic.

Reminder: the R8 GT is powered by a 5.2 FSI V10 that has been tricked out to deliver a total of 560 HP and 540 Nm (398.28 lb-ft) at 6,500 rpm. The result is a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds, from 0 to 124 mph in 10.6 seconds, and a top speed of 198.8 mph.

Spotted in real life? Are they dreaming or something? I wish I can take a picture of it.

I like more horsepower as much as the next guy. But if that means I have to moon the general public to get it, that’s where I draw the line.

Nice photo of this Audi R8 GT but I guess it will be more interesting to see it in real life, well that’s fine at least we’ve seen this lovely creature of Audi even though its only on pictures.

I thoroughly enjoyed this post. Thanks for providing us something different on a Friday afternoon! PS that top picture of the R8 is fantastic. I’ve flopped back and forth on the topic before, but without having driven either vehicle, I think I’d go for the R8. It exudes class.

Yes, they are lucky enough to have a picture with the Real Life R8 GT.
