Audi Sport’s new GT4 product has reached its first big sales landmark, the German manufacturer revealing that it has built and delivered 50 Audi R8 LMS GT4s.
The car, which is assembled on the same line as their road car counterparts at Audi Böllinger Höfe (above), is a big part of the growing popularity of GT4 racing around the world.
Audi has revealed to DSC that of the 50 already produced and delivered, 20 of those are set to be raced in the inaugural Audi Sport Seyffarth R8 LMS Cup (dedicated to GT4), with the vast majority of the remaining cars sold set to be raced rather than used on track days.
According to the head of Audi Sport Customer Racing Chris Reinke (pictured on the right above), there’s already around another 10 more orders for the new car on the books too.
“We are delighted with the demand,” he told the DSC Editor in the Sebring press room. “GT4 is very much taking off but for me the real achievement goes beyond the sales numbers, the way in which the car has been integrated into the main production process for the roadgoing R8 makes it a far more sustainable product for us.”
