The Audi R8 LMP is a V-8 gasoline-powered LMP1-class car, the predecessor to the diesel-powered R10 and new R15. It, like its predecessors and successors, are built primarily for the '24 Hours of Le Mans' Endurance Race. Several versions of the R8 race car have featured in Gran Turismo 4, Gran Turismo (PSP), Gran Turismo 5, and Gran Turismo 6. This race car is portrayed to be exceptionally fast in acceleration and top speed, which is 230+ MPH, and 0-60 in less than 3 seconds. This car is recognized as one of the most successful race cars in history, due to its winning record in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Several road versions of the Audi R8 have been released, however these bear no resemblance to the racer, except in name.
Audi also produced a number of GT3 class R8 LMS Race Cars which have featured in Gran Turismo. These are based on the road-going version of the R8.
