If all of the 200 Audi R8 LMS cars produced to date were lined up directly behind each other the line would be more than 900 meters long. 136 models of the first-generation 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,” said 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.

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 and Connor De Phillippi. Not only teams in Germany and Europe benefit from the services and personal consultancy provided by Audi Sport customer racing. The Melbourne Performance Center (MPC) in Australia, Audi Sport customer racing Japan, Audi Sport customer racing China and Audi Sport customer racing North America form a global service and sales network.

The chassis of the Audi R8 LMS is produced at the “Böllinger Höfe” site on the same manufacturing lines as the Audi R8 production model. There is a close kinship between the two sports cars as the race car uses 50 percent of the components and component assemblies of the production model, including the near-unchanged V10 FSI engine.
