When Audi introduced its first ever production mid-engine supercar – the R8 – six years ago, most of the automotive world figured the company would always keep its performance potential a couple notches below that of its angular and higher-priced Latin sister, the Lamborghini Gallardo. That expectation diminished somewhat with the introduction of the R8 5.2 FSI quattro, which features a slightly detuned version of the junior Lambo’s 5.2L V10 under the hood. And it took an even bigger hit when the R8 GT, a lighter, higher-powered version of the V10 model, was revealed in 2010.
Of course, not even a stock R8 GT will blow the average Gallardo into the weeds. But if you prefer the looks of the German speed demon and want to be able to smoke a Gallardo, there are plenty of tuners willing to lend you a hand. And if you happen to have the drop-top R8 GT Spyder (of which only 333 are being built), then you might want to drop the gang at Wheelsandmore a line.
