The Audi R8 LMS Ultra is part of the R8 LMS-series which has been in production since 2009, designed for the FIA GT3 European Championship and other racing series. The Ultra was set into production in 2012, and came with new PS1 safety seats, updated transmission, and increased engine power.
The Audi R8 LMS also won the 2012 24 Hours of Nürburgring, which was also the first victory for Audi.
The "W-Racing Team" Edition was released for SpeedBoost on November 29th 2012. The car comes pre-equipped Gromlen race-tuned parts which makes it able to reach an unmodified top speed of 359 km/h (223 mph). The "W-Racing Team" Edition also features an unique racing themed livery with sponsorship logos such as Blancpain, Total and SpeedHunters. The car also comes with 2-star Skill Mods and a Stage 3 Lowering Kit.
The Audi R8 LMS Ultra has a stock top speed of 334 km/h (208 mph) which is well above average for a Class A car. It has strong acceleration and features very strong low gears. The R8 LMS has an average nitrous output. The handling of the vehicle is good and responsive due to sensitive steering. The vehicle is also prone to oversteer which allows tight cornering.
Compared to its road going R8 siblings the 4.2 FSi Quattro and the 5.2 FSi Quattro, this car is significantly lighter, and in Pursuit Outruns and Team Escapes, this car isn't heavy enough to take down cops without losing a great amount of speed but it can quickly be regained due to its powerful acceleration. Smashing through roadblocks, however, will flip the car. Its responsive handling can allow it to dodge rhinos easily.
