A McDonald Family Dealership

The Audi R8 GT. Performance personified.


5.2 Liter V10 Engine
At the heart of the R8 GT is the soul stirring 560 hp 5.2 FSI V10 engine. Displayed under a transparent panel and nestled within an optional Carbon Fiber matte engine bay, the lightweight aluminum, high-revving V10 screams to an astronomical 8700 rpm and propels the R8 GT 0 to 60 mph in only 3.6 seconds on the way up to a top track speed of 199 mph, 0.2 seconds faster than the R8 5.2, whose top speed is 196 mph. As part of a race-bred mid-engine design that contributes to optimal weight distribution and superb handling dynamics, the 5.2 V10 produces 107hp/liter with 560 horsepower and 398 lb-ft. torque and features race winning technology such as FSI direct injection and a dry sump lubrication system that assures engine lubrication under the most demanding driving situations. Additionally, the supreme performance due to the weight-savings of the GT translates into an additional 35 HP and 7-lb of torque. It is no wonder then, that this same engine is used in the R8 LMS GT3 race car.

Six Speed R tronic Transmission
An automated six-speed manual gearbox combines the sportiness of a manual gearbox with the advantages of an automatic. Shifting is performed with the joystick gear lever or with manual shift paddles mounted on the steering wheel. A sport mode shift program further accentuates motorsport- oriented gear shifting. The manual transmission features S mode and launch control, which offers lightning fast shift times of just 0.1 seconds.

quattro® All-wheel Drive
As a true supercar the R8 GT not only offers blistering speed but awe-inspiring handling. Featuring the legendary quattro® all-wheel drive system, the R8 GT inspires driver confidence, giving you traction when you need it, where you need it, regardless of road conditions. To accommodate the extreme performance of the R8 GT, quattro® utilizes a continuously variable torque distribution, dynamically adjusting power to the wheels with the best traction. With a significant 85% rear torque bias, this highly specialized quattro® system provides the R8 GT with a balanced driving experience unlike any car on the road.

FSI® Direct Injection
Audi Fuel Stratified Injection, or FSI®, offers the benefits of increased performance and fuel efficiency. FSI direct injection delivers a precise amount of fuel directly into the engine cylinders as opposed to the engine intake runners. This advanced process helps ensure a more complete combustion, thereby diminishing waste and increasing power.

Additionally, the specially designed piston heads compress the fuel-air mixture in a spiraling motion, creating the most efficient combustion possible. Making the most of these technologies allows for greater efficiency in the combustion process.

Dry Sump Lubrication
A dry sump is an exclusive oil system that uses a secondary external reservoir for oil, as compared to a conventional oil system.

Dry sump lubrication offers many advantages in the R8. For instance, under heavy acceleration, the vehicle's oil stays in place, guaranteeing an even and constant supply of oil. Also, the large reservoir offers increased oil capacity, which ensures cool oil temperatures for consistent performance.
