Chris’ Cool Cars: Audi R8 GT

Audi’s V-10 powered R8 has been on sale since 2006. To spare you from having to do math, that’s 16 years so far. Well, given the state of emissions regulations and the trend moving towards electric cars, it is of no surprise that the 5.2-liter 10-cylinder is going away.

Audi is saying goodbye with a rear-wheel-drive, 602hp limited edition Audi R8 GT. Only 333 copies will be made worldwide. 0-62 sprint happens in 3.4 seconds, while top speed is 199 mph. Sounds like a lot of fun to me. Definitely sounds cool.
