Audi R8 GT Week – Parts three and four

Here are the final two videos marking ‘Audi R8 GT Week’. Yet again, multiple Le Mans winner and AudiWerks Driver, Emanuele Pirro, gives his views on the hardcore 552 hp supercar from Ingolstadt. This time he comments on the car’s ‘no compromise’ development, and also a few facts highlighting the weight-saving measures involved. Overall, the GT weighs 180 lbs less than its regular R8 V10 sibling, thanks to the use of carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) for many panels, and polycarbonate for the bulkhead and the window in the rear hatch, thinner windscreen glass, a lighter battery, and even lightweight carpets!
