The new Audi R8 GT has been caught for the first time on the streets (somewhere in Cannes). It’s not a professional video, of course, but it’s worth taking a look.
The rookie cameraman allows the viewer to see every inch down one side of the beautiful, lightweight car before stopping to zoom in on the powerful 5.2 FSI V10 engine. The sparkling Ice Silver metallic paint job glistens in the light as the Audi is seen in all of its exotic glory. The cameraman even takes the time to zoom in on the carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) rear bumper and sideblades and, in the event anyone questions if this is in fact the GT, the man zooms in on the GT logo placed on the side of the vehicle.
The Audi R8 GT delivers a total of 560 HP and 540 Nm (398.28 lb-ft) at 6,500 rpm. The result of this setup 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.
