We met up a few weeks ago with Audi of America R8 product planner Mark Fruechtnicht at the local Neato Burrito. Fruechtnicht was in the area doing a site visit at a local Audi dealership and this gave us an both an excuse to enjoy a great burrito and talk shop about Audi and the R8. The conversation eventually turned to Audi Exclusive and Fruechtnicht admitted that one of his favorite
One of the photos we've encountered today with the press release from Audi's new AutoStadt pavilion included this R8 GT Spyder seen on display in Wolfsburg. We've only seen a few GT Spyders so far and hadn't yet seen a silver example so figured it was worth sharing.

With the Audi R8 finally on a racing grid in America, it seems logical that American R8 owners will sit up and take notice. Attendance by a few R8s and their owners at the Audi Racing Experience hospitality presence was to be expected, but even still it was a treat to see a US-spec R8 GT make
Speaking of the Audi R8 GT, we've come across another video short produced by Audi highlighting its ultra cool new supercar. This particular spot hails out of the German side of the Audi TV YouTube channel and catalogs the GT coupe's visit to Istanbul. No, there's no English dub like the recent Spyder piece we posted but that's unnecessary. The soundtrack is entirely that

With Audi R8 GT deliveries now well underway, shots of the cars in the wild are now beginning to surface. The car seems a natural for an Audi Exclusive order where an owner chooses to go beyond the streamlined color options and choose something a bit different. Case in point is a classic 70s color painted on Audis of the period but known more for its placement on that era's Porsches as well as the last generation 911 GT3 RS. 'Signal
For this last video in Audi USA's 'R8 GT Week', Audi Sport legend Emanuele Pirro returns one last time to talk about the R8 GT's drop in weight over its more common R8 siblings. Between useful trivia from Emanuele, viewers are greeted with shots of the car roaring around Infineon. Watch below.
Emanuele Pirro returns again for the third of four Audi R8 GT videos. This time around, the topic is compromises... or rather the lack thereof. Audi engineers made like congress on the debt ceiling, not compromising in an effort to bring numbers down. Watch it below.
Digging around photo archives from Audi AG that we have access to, we've uncovered two more shots of the Audi R8 GT. We've prepped both as wallpapers in high-resolution. Download them below.
