Audi USA unveiled the 2023 limited edition R8 GT, their most potent rear-wheel-drive vehicle to date. This Audi supercar’s model year appears to be its final one. Furthermore, only 333 GTs will be offered for sale globally, with 150 going to the United States.

There will be 50 of each colour red, grey, and black with only one for each additional Audi dealer. Each vehicle has a unique build number that is placed beneath the surface of the centre-console trim made of carbon fibre.

The R8 GT has undergone a number of weight-saving procedures, including the installation of 20-inch milled-cut, forged wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

Along with the bucket seats and carbon fibre-reinforced plastic suspension components like the anti-roll bar, ceramic brakes also contribute to weight reduction. The R8 GT weighs 3,516 lbs (1,595 kg) curb weight overall, which is 55 lbs (25 kg) less than the basic model.
