Car Pron: 2011 Audi R8 V10 GT

Speaking of clubsport cars, Audi's latest offering has hit the streets. The Audi R8 V10 was a spicy meatball already, but with the use of R8s in GT classes of road racing series around the world as well as popularity of hardcore variants of existing popular sports cars, an even more capable R8 V10 was debuted much in the same vain as the Merecedes SLS GT3. This new limited edition flagship has gone on a carbon fibre and lightweight material de jour diet dropping over 200 lbs from the regular V10 model. 553hp, R Tronic paddled semi-auto gearbox, 0-62mph in 3.6 seconds, 199mph top speed, 19" forged wheels, alcantara for days and all the usual luxury appointments you'd expect from an Audi. These would actually undercut Lamborghini Gallardo LP560 sales if there were more than 333 being made.
