The Chevron GR8 (Gran Rapida) is a lightweight racing car that debuted in 2010. It was the first GT Chevron race car that was built since the 60s and 70s race cars created by Derek Bennett. The new Chevron GR8 was given the original design, but with a modern twist, as well as new equipment. The car is powered by a 2.0 liter four cylinder engine that delivers a total of 260 HP and sprints the car to a top speed of 150 mph. The engine is coupled to a Hewland JFR 5 speed sequential transmission and is built to run for 30 hours without needing attention.

German racer and TV presenter, Tim Schrick recently tested the race car and said: "I’ve fallen in love with this car. It’s so beautiful to drive. It’s such a nice car, and right up my street, as a racer. The grip levels are amazing. And the little car is so stable, with a stiff, direct and totally connected steering feeling. It feels very nimble, and it’s so loud and exciting inside, with a very, very nice sound from the Cosworth two-liter engine. You have 260bhp on tap and even here with these great cars on track, you can play with anyone, and not get beaten."

Audi debuted the second-gen R8 Coupe for the 2016 model year, but it was more of a dud in terms of generational evolution. To be quite honest, it looked really similar to the mode it replaced. But, it’s a still alternative to anything from Lamborghini or Ferrari and it does look good even if its design is considered too similar to the first-gen model. Either way, if you’re a fan of the R8, then it deserves some screen time on your computer. Go ahead and take our favorite wallpaper or pick one from the handpicked gallery below.
