This next year will hold a special, limited edition R8 GT. Only 333 will be made worldwide, 90 of which will be issued to the US. Each R8's production number will be displayed on the shifter.
The starting price is $196,800 and that will get you an R8 that is lighter, more advanced and increased power...as one may expect with a new model car. The 5.2L V10 will push out 560 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque! 0-60 takes only 3.6 seconds and with the pedal pushed to the floor, the R8 will top out at nearly 199 mph.
Most of the change is in the weight and suspension setup...with carbon fiber and aerodynamic improvements, the R8 is 180 lbs lighter than the current model. And, of course you get your top tier features such as the nav, a Ban and Olufsen premium audio system and much much more.
