    1. R8 GT Week plus: Motor Trend Review of the R8 GT Including Video

For now, we couldn't think of a better place to start the R8 GT Week plus push than this review from ...
    2. Le Mans 2011: Huge Photo Gallery of Audi Photos And Not of the Race - R8 GT Spyder, A1 clubsport and More



      As you might imagine, the Audi presence at the 24 Hours of Le Mans is so gargantuan and target rich that you could spend a few days looking at things that have nothing to do with racecars on track. We've uploaded a gallery of "Miscellaneous" shots that include other portions of the Audi presence including the Audi R8 GT Spyder, Audi A1 clubsport quattro, Audi e-tron ...
    3. Spied: Could this Brawny R8 Test Mule Indicate New ultra GT Offering?



      We're not sure what to make of this R8 GT-based test mule spotted at the Nurburgring yesterday. Clearly the car is a factory mule and clearly it's been upgraded. Here's a quick rundown of the changes we spot.

      *Bigger racing-style front chin spoiler
      *Front and rear fender flaps indicating a likely wider track
      *Small Gurney flaps on rear to each side of spoiler ...
    4. Audi Exclusive Sighting: Matte Ipanema Brown Audi R8 GT



      With production ramped up, the super limited (just 333 examples) R8 GT is finally being spotted in colors other than Suzuka Grey as were the initial pre-production units. We know matte paint is an option on the car, but were still surprised to see the matte take on Ipanema Brown. Ipanema is one of the favorite colors of Audi board members and of Ingolstadt's design chief Stefan Sielaff. We've seen it before plenty of times but never ...
    5. Audi Design Releases Drawings of R8 GT Spyder. Ingolstadt Confirms for Production.



      It was probably a foregone conclusion that there would eventually be an R8 GT Spyder. Audi seems to have a track record of continual special model introductions done to keep momentum behind their super-hot R8. And since there's already a coupe GT and already a Spyder, it's easy to imagine how this will play out. Think all of the special bits from the R8 GT applied to the Spyder, including ...

      Autocar says a prototype of the R8 GT Spyder will be on display at Le Mans in June and then ...
    7. #LittleKnownAudiFact: 333 Count of Audi R8 GTs Not Effected by Demolished R8 GT Says quattro GmbH Boss



      On location at the Fascination quattro event in Mont Tremblant, Quebec last week we had the opportunity to have dinner with quattro GmbH boss Stefan Reil. We're guessing, if you're anything like us, you'd ask pretty much every question you could think of about the amazing mix of cars this man has been ...

The short piece focuses mainly on the A7 and the R8 GT, both stars of the Audi stand this year in Los Angeles.
