Audi is preparing an LMS customer sport programme for its stunning R8 model. The beast is going to feature a V10 engine that will sport nothing less than 500hp/ 373kW and will be mated to a 6-speed sequential gearbox. Influenced by renowned racing drivers like Frank Biela and Frank Stippler, and with help from the wacky Germans from Abt, Audi’s R8 LMS racing car will be available for €262,000 to an exquisite clientele. We’d love to take it for a quick spin on the track and pedal to the metal, wouldn’t you?. [via WCF]
