2023 Audi R8 GT: what is it?

It looks like Audi’s track-focused variant of the Audi R8 supercar is set to return. This test mule was caught winter testing and features notably more aggressive aerodynamic bodywork. Canards, larger skirts, a sizeable diffuser and that huge rear wing are all reminiscent of the old R8 GT.

We can also expect that glorious naturally aspirated V10 engine to receive a power bump, along with more focused suspension and stickier tyres. 

2023 Audi R8 GT: what is it powered by?

The Audi R8 is powered by a 5.2-litre V10 engine that has strong links with the unit found at the heart of a Lamborghini Huracan. In Performance guise it produces 612bhp, but this new GT model should push over 650bhp.

A bigger question is if this new R8 GT will be rear or all-wheel drive. Past experience suggests the latter, but a rear-wheel drive car would make it more akin to the successful GT3 racer.

The car pictured looks pretty complete to our eyes with this likely being its final leg of testing. It’s safe to assume that the supercar will be revealed later this year with the limited-run model finding its way to owners in early 2023.

2023 Audi R8 GT: how much will it cost?

It has been a long time since we’ve had an R8 GT in a showroom, so pricing of the old car isn’t the greatest guide. Looking at the R8’s current pricing structure, we’d hazard a guess that this new car will come in at around £170,000 before various carbon options.

Could this be the last hurrah for the V10 supercar?
