I know, this is nothing new. But hey, this isn't the place to go if you're looking for automotive news! But if you are looking for a good dose of engineering perfection here it is, and it's brought to you by the well respected UK car magazine AUTOCAR. This time Steve sutcliffe takes you for a spin around the Silverstone circuit with the Audi R8 LMS GT3 racer.

The Audi R8 LMS uses the same Lamborghini V10 that you can find on the road going R8 V10 but in order to meet the regulations of GT3 races, the car has 18 Hp less. If you are willing to participate in a GT3 race or maybe next year's 24 hours of the Nurburgring, the R8 LMS is yours for 300k £ otherwise you can still watch this video to get a glimpse of what it feels like, no power sliding this time, but hey that's not the fastest way to go round corners.
