  • Successful in two generations: many titles on international race tracks
  • Unbroken worldwide demand for GT3 race car

customers and developed a sales and service network around the globe, numerous
supporting services and technology offerings.
If all of the 200 Audi R8 LMS cars produced to date were lined up directly behind

race car and 64 of its successor launched in 2015 have been delivered by
Audi around the world. “We’re proud of this mark of 200 cars,” says Stephan
Winkelmann, Managing Director of quattro GmbH that develops and produces the
race car. “With more than ten manufacturers offering their products, including
many premium sports car brands, the GT3 market is fiercely competitive in many
countries. The demand shows that both our product and our services are focused on
the customer and absolutely competitive.” To date, both generations combined
have won 28 overall championship titles worldwide. In addition, there are 34 class
titles, nine overall victories in 24-hour races, plus four successes in 12-hour
competitions.
Chris Reinke, Head of Audi Sport customer racing, says: “When our new model was
launched last year, many teams opted for the Audi R8 LMS – and inquiries from
many parts of the world continue to be received in large numbers. Our teams and
drivers have been battling for victories and championship titles around the globe
ever since the new race car’s first full season.”
The 200th Audi R8 LMS was built at the Neckarsulm site in July and goes to Team
“Montaplast by Land-Motorsport.” Wolfgang Land’s squad, after six single events, is
leading the ADAC GT Masters with Christopher Mies/Connor De Phillippi (D/USA).
