Pirelli World Challenge - #40 Audi R8 LMS

Pirelli World Challenge – #40 Audi R8 LMS

As mentioned before, this is Audi’s “turn key” race car. The Audi R8
LMS. In fact, this is the same car we covered back in July.

Audi has expanded their Customer Racing program, so expect to see a slightly tweaked version of this car in most of your favorite series. In fact, at this years Grand-Am Rolex 24 at Daytona, Audi R8s took 1st and 2nd in GT class, beating out Ferraris, Corvettes, and Porsches.

So, expect to see more of these Audi R8 LMS GT cars competing world wide against the likes of: Porsche GT3.R, Lambo Gallardo GT3, Ferrari 458 Italia, BMW Z4 GT3, Nissan GT-R, McLaren MP4-12C, etc, etc.
