Remember when we were kids? No? Well think back. Long and hard. Those long days at school, the clock ticking away, slow as molasses. Sitting there, knowing we would be rewarded by a summer that felt it had no end. For some of us, a prize for the taking. You lived to be the first one out that door, the sunlight of a June day hitting your excited face. Or, because you lived in Vancouver, heavy rain and maybe even snow. Regardless, you wanted to be the first one out of that door, and that drive has got you to where you are today. A mere mortal Audi R8 is not worthy of what you desire. You want to taste the champagne after every drive. Don’t you? Well have a seat my friend. This is the 2012 R8 GT.
With a FSI (Fuel Stratified Injection) 5.2 Liter V10 turned up to 11, this bad boy is pumping out 560 HP and 398 ft lbs of torque. Combining that to Audi’s incredible R-tronic automated manual means 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds, and 0-100 mph in 7.3 seconds. With performance numbers like that, don’t go thinking that this R8 is all straight line speed. This is a track weapon. Now knowing how that drive got you to where you are today, you hit the gym. Why stop at your car? With a weight reduction of 220 pounds over a regular Audi R8, this car handles almost as well as you do. Race ready coil over suspension, more negative camber, less understeer, and a focus on nimbleness, make sure that this Sauerkraut Superleggera will keep that drive inside of you going. To be the first one out the door. To take that prize.
You may not be a race car driver now; you may never be. That’s okay. But just know that when you hear the howl of ten cylinders exploding behind your head, go to pull one of the rifle-bolt precise paddle shifters, see that big carbon fiber wing in your rearview mirror as you surge through a tunnel onto a long sweeper bend, and look back at your car at the end of the day knowing that it is number 90 of only 333, you my friend, will finally – taste that champagne.
