Audi R8 LMS GT2:
The Audi R8 LMS GT2 is a high-performance racing car developed by Audi Sport for competition in a variety of GT2 racing series around the world. The car made its public debut at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The R8 LMS GT2 is based on the road-going Audi R8 supercar and features a number of modifications to enhance its performance and durability for racing.
It features a carbon fiber monocoque chassis that is designed to provide exceptional rigidity and crashworthiness. The suspension system is fully adjustable, allowing teams to fine-tune the car’s handling to suit different tracks and conditions.
The car is powered by a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces up to 640 horsepower. This engine is derived from the same unit found in the Audi R8 road car but has been extensively modified for racing applications. It features a dry sump lubrication system, strengthened engine mounts, and a high-performance ECU. The Audi R8 LMS GT2 is capable of achieving top speeds of over 200 mph and lap times that are comparable to some of the most advanced racing cars in the world.
