Video: Audi R8 GT Week Part 3

The Audi R8 GT was recently brought onto the US market and the company has decided to promote the vehicle by running a week-long run of videos in a series called "R8 GT Week." We’ve already featured Part 1 and Part 2, and now Part 3 has been released.

Part three is called "No compromise" and features 5-time Le Mans champion and AudiWerks driver, Emanuele Pirro, as he shares his opinion on the R8 GT. The title is fitting because Pirro says that Audi engineers are not comfortable with the word compromise and have come up with a "fantastic car, both on the racetrack and on the road which is very, very difficult to achieve."

Part four should be coming out sometime soon and is called "Healthy Appetite." This video provides another opportunity to learn a few things about the sports car, such as the fact that it features a V10 engine with an output of 560 HP, sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds, is 180 lbs lighter than a standard R8, and can hit a top speed of 198.4 mph. All of those wonderful features and only 90 units will be offered for America. Bummer.

Check out a teaser for Part 4 after the jump.
