This is your rare chance to tame the beast that has conquered the world.

The Audi R8 LMS GT4

Your chance to get behind the wheel of Audi Sport customer racing’s newest product, the Audi R8 LMS GT4, has arrived. Already a class-winner at the Dubai 24 Hours and in this season’s China GT Championship, the beast has hit Asia’s circuits with immediate results.

Derived directly from the road-going Audi R8 Coupé V10 – sharing over 60% of its parts – it is powerful, offers a high level of safety, yet remains economical in terms of purchase and ownership cost, epitomising the highest levels of production-based motorsport engineering.

The beast from the brand with the four rings is rear-wheel drive, boasts a 7-speed double-clutch transmission and the same Audi Space Frame and 5.2 litre, naturally-aspirated V10 engine as the Audi R8 LMS GT3. An output of approximately 495 horsepower makes the Audi R8 LMS GT4 a veritable powerhouse.

Join us in July, August, September and October at the Shanghai International Circuit, the Ningbo International Speedpark and the Zhuhai International Circuit to experience the thrill of high-performance racing. What better way to begin your journey into privateer motorsport?
