Henry Catchpole Drives The Last Audi V10 Supercar: R8 GT RWD

Audi first introduced the R8 in 2006 but in 2023, the German car manufacturer announced that their long-serving V10 supercar is heading for the history books. To give it a proper send-off, Audi introduced the R8 GT RWD which is their last V10 supercar.

From its inception, the Audi R8 has been a game-changer, reshaping perceptions of what a sports car could achieve. The GT rear-wheel drive, boasting an impressive 611 brake horsepower, stands as the pinnacle of the R8 lineup. It signals a departure from the Quattro system, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel-drive nature and reaffirming its commitment to delivering a thrilling driving experience.

The R8 has always been a head-turner, and the GT rear-wheel drive takes this to new heights. Its aggressive design, generating 300 kilos of downforce, pays homage to Audi’s GT race cars. Aerodynamic elements, such as the swan-neck rear wing and massive diffuser, not only enhance performance but also create a visual spectacle. This model represents the culmination of years of design evolution, making it the most striking R8 to date.

Watch this video with Henry Catchpole from Hagerty as he gets behind the wheel of the Audi R8 GT RWD and explores what makes this supercar special.
