“Since 2009, Audi has been producing GT3 race cars for customers around the world. In the new R8 LMS, we’re again offering our customers an absolutely competitive concept,” says Romolo Liebchen, Head of Audi Sport customer racing. The company built 136 cars of the predecessor models for the markets in Australia, Asia, Europe and America.
On September 21, production of the new Audi R8 LMS will be launched, with deliveries commencing on October 26. Until the end of March 2016, Audi has scheduled production capacities for 45 GT3 race cars for the coming motorsport season. With that, the brand with the four rings sets the pace: the R8 LMS, as one of the first new models, corresponds to the GT3 regulations that will be in effect from 2016 until at least 2018, and thus sets new standards in terms of safety.
