Hype News: Audi Gives R8 GT A Shiny New MSRP

Audi has announced that the pure awesome that is the R8 GT will have a paltry MSRP of $196,800.  A steal right? OK, I know it sounds like I’m joking but when you think about it $196k is a great price for what you get in this car.  A 5.2 liter V10 with 560HP that weighs nothing and goes faster than donuts at a police convention? Yes, please!  Especially when you consider that the other new supercars like the Lamborghini Aventador and the McLaren MP4-12C are both significantly north of $200k.

The down side is only 333 R8 GTs will be built for the worldwide market and worse news is only 90 of those are coming stateside.  So, even if you have the cash you have probably already been beaten to the punch by the time you finish reading this.  Bummer!  But hey, an Audi R8 GT on the second hand market is still an Audi R8 GT!
