Behind the scenes of Audi Sport

The third installment of DRIVE’s Inside quattro GmbH season sees Leon Parente look at the Audi Sport Customer Racing program, home of the R8 LMS ultra racecar.

Under the engine cover of this €350,000 machine, the 5.2-litre V10 unit remains almost unchanged from the production R8, with some customers reporting trouble-free racing for over 20,000 kilometres. An output of up to 419 kW (570 hp) and over 500 Nm of torque is available, depending on the competition and its restrictor regulations, which it transferred to the rear wheels via a sequential, pneumatically activated 6-speed gearbox.
