Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II - Pure V10 Performance

Melbourne VIC, Australia
VIN / Engine Number
Roll Cage
Log Book

Think GT3 racing and it is impossible not to think of the Audi R8 LMS GT3. One of the most successful GT3 race cars of the modern era, it has amassed 83 drivers’ titles internationally and 106 championship victories – as well as eight overall victories in 12-hour races (including a record three at the Bathurst 12-Hour) and 13, 24-hour victories.

It more than meets the challenges posed on all racetracks in all climatic zones and has won titles in Saudi Arabia as well as in Europe, Asia, Australia and NZ. The model has been successful in sprint competitions around the globe as well as in 12-hour races in Malaysia, here in Australia and in the Gulf 12 Hours or in the 24-hour classics at the Nürburgring, at Spa, in the GTD class at Daytona, and in Dubai. The long service intervals enable economical operation and thanks to its racing qualities and high safety, the Audi R8 LMS is equally popular with pros and amateurs alike.

This particular car – a 2016 model upgraded to the latest Evo II specification – would have to be one of the best examples currently on the market anywhere in the world.

Exclusively maintained to the highest possible standard by the team at Melbourne Performance Centre (the official Audi Sport Factory Customer Racing Team in Australia), the car was successfully campaigned by Launch Racing in last season’s Fanatec GT World Challenge at the hands of Michael Kokkinos. A key point of difference with this car is that despite the highly competitive GT category, the Audi’s chassis is absolutely perfect - any minor scuffs or scratches to the body have been repaired or replaced with new carbon panels making this a truly exceptional R8.

The Audi was upgraded to the highly desirable Evo II spec upon the package becoming available in 2021, with a raft of improvements made in multiple areas: aerodynamics, chassis, traction control, engine characteristics and climate control. The most visually striking change is the rear wing suspended from behind and is shared with the GT2 variant of the R8 LMS and the RS 3 LMS touring car. Four-way adjustable dampers and a more configurable traction control system were also included as part of the retrofitted upgrade kit. In summary, the improvements associated with the Evo II upgrade make it the specification to have – and this car absolutely ticks the box.

Key specifications as follows:

• Engine: 5.2L naturally aspirated, longitudinally mounted V10
• Power: Up to 430kw (585hp)
• Torque: Over 550nm
• Transmission: sequential 6-speed with paddle shifters
• Type of drive: rear-wheel drive
• Weight: 1,235 kg
• Fuel cell capacity: 120L

Included with the sale are four sets of wheels (three sets have brand new Pirelli tyres fitted). A major service (and scheduled maintenance) was carried out by Melbourne Performance Centre in July last year after which point the car has not been raced. A comprehensive service history will be provided as well as delivery documentation from Audi Sport Customer Racing in Germany.

Whether the new owner is wanting to compete in GT racing or another category of motorsport, this represents an exceptional opportunity to get yourself behind the wheel of a very impressive Audi R8 LMS GT3.
