2013 Audi R8 GT Plus soon to be presented

The Automobile Club de l’ Ouest is the creator and organizer of the “24 Heures du Mans” starting 1906, thanks to the passion of some men who knew that the invention of the automobile had the potential to revolutionize the 20th century. This year the competition will be held on 22- 23 June and some of the most famous car brands in the world are going to present their works of art. One of these is the German company Audi which will introduce the 2013 Audi R8 GT Plus at Le Mans.

The 2013 Audi R8 GT Plus will most likely be powered by a V10 5.2-liter engine producing more than the 552 bhp (412 kW) and 398 lb-ft (540 Nm) that the 2010 R8 GT is capable of generating. The rear-wheel drive version will probably be equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox and the all-wheel drive model could receive a dual-clutch, seven-speed automatic transmission. The last one will be able to go from stand to 62 mph (100 km/h) in about 3.4 seconds, this meaning that it is 0.2s faster than its predecessor. The maximum speed might remain the same. That is 199 mph (320 km/h).

Although the 2013 Audi R8 GT Plus hasn’t been released yet, the producers already think of a Spyder version of the model, one faster than the 2011 R8 GT Spyder. The future vehicle will do the 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.8 seconds and it will run for a peak speed of 197 mph (317 km/h). The fact that all its predecessors were available in a limited edition makes us believe this will also hold true for the 2013 Audi R8 GT Plus. However, none of these is 100 per cent true and the only one that can reveal the truth is the Le Mans automobile competition.
