AutoCarUK reports that Audi will be revealing their anticipated R8 GT at this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours, which is essentially a tuned version of the R8 V10.
Under the mid-mounted hood is the pre-facelift Audi R8 GT’s 5.2L V10 mated to a standard six-speed manual cog swapper, driving the rear-wheels only. All-wheel drive will be offered, though only with Audi’s latest seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The latter is said to sprint from 0-62 mph in just 3.4 seconds and onto a top sprint of 199 mph.
Visual updates, which will also aid in improving aerodynamics, will include a more pronounced front splitter on the lower front fascia, larger side air ducts, and a bigger rear spoiler for more downforce. Expect some unique badging as well, though don’t count on those adding any extra horsepower.
A Plus and Spyder version will also follow in 2014.
