    2. Gallery Update: 24 Hours of Nurburgring Gallery Grows Including R8 GT Shots



      Frequent Fourtitude contributor John Stahmann surprised us with a wide selection of photos from the 24 Hours of Nurburgring including some great detail shots of the new R8 GT. Seems John was in the general neighborhood of the Nurburgring and stopped by to watch the race, shooting hundreds of photos at the event that he's been kind enough to share ...
    3. Audi R8 with Gulf Color Scheme Turns up at Audi AG Headquarters (A50)



      We've written about the place before if not the car. Just below building A50 on the Audi Forum Ingolstadt is where certain Audi AG board members like to park. Short of seeing them actually exiting the car we're never exactly sure which car belongs to whom but there are some obvious elements of taste that we can identify. Audi AG boss Rupert Stadler likes metallic whites while development board member and long proven gearhead ...
    4. Audi R8 GT Spyder Render by Jon Sibal



      Photoshop ace and Audi enthusiast Jon Sibal was inspired last week by the R8 Spyder starring in the new Iron Man 2 movie and also by the just-released R8 GT when he put together these renders of an R8 GT Spyder. Of course with the coupe just announced there's no real indicator yet that Audi might consider building such a beast but if Jon's renders are any indicator we hope that they do.

    5. Audi R8 GT Multimedia Fix for the Most Afflicted Addicts



      We've just stumbled upon two new sources for photos and more of the new king-of-the-hill Audi R8 GT. It turns out that Ingolstadt has taken the R8 GT section of its own Audi.de German market website live while at the same time we've gotten access to a huge collection of photos from the 2010 Grand Prix de Monaco Historique where Audi unveiled the car, lapping the fabled F1 street course with the ...
    6. 200 Photos Added of 2010 Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Incl. Audi R8 GT & Silver Arrows



      You may remember last week's unveiling of the Audi R8 GT took place at the rather unique venue of the 2010 Grand Prix de Monaco Historique - a vintage event where the the return of two Auto Union Silver Arrows (a Type C and Type D with Hans Stuck and Jacky Ickx at the wheel respectively) likely was just as significant to attendees as the GT's global launch. ...
    7. Audi R8 from Audi Exclusive with New D4 A8-Style Diamond Stitch Leather Seats



      One of the most notable improvements and assets of the new A8 is its benchmark setting interior. Among our favorite new styling cues of the new Audi executive class sedan are the optional diamond-stitched leather seats. And while we really like the diamond look in the A8 we're in flat-out lust for the same texture applied to the Audi R8.

    8. Audi R8 GT in Ipanema Brown



      Last week Audi revealed the R8 GT at the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique and while most all of the photos and PR materials to have surfaced from the event showed the car in the almost-white Suzuka Grey color, photos we've found on Flickr also show one in Audi Design Chief Stefan Sielaff's favorite color of Ipanema Brown.
