Audi R8 details:
The Audi R8 high-performance sports vehicle has been a winner from the very beginning. This applies to both the production models, winners of the World Performance Vehicle Award in 2008 (R8) and in 2010 (R8 V10), and to the race vehicle, the Audi R8 LMS, which won 23 races in its first season and claimed three championships. The genes of the race version are now coming to the street - in the Audi R8 GT. The exclusive series is limited to 333 units. Every Audi R8 GT has a badge with its production number on the shift lever knob.
The production Audi R8 V10 5. 2 FSI quattro is already a shining example of the Audi's lightweight construction philosophy. Its aluminum Audi Room Frame (ASF) body weighs only 210 kilograms (462. 97 lb). The aluminum body panels are joined to the frame of extruded profiles and cast nodes by means of positive and friction connections. The motor frame is made of ultra lightweight magnesium.
The ASF body is largely hand-built at the Neckarsulm plant in a complex manufacturing workflow. The extremely high strength of the body is the basis for the high-performance sports car's precise handling, and it also provides good vibration convenience and first-rate crash security.
