Audi has delivered the first of the limited edition series R8 GT to a U.K. customer who took delivery of the vehicle at the Audi Forum in Neckarsulm.

The R8 GT in Phantom Black that was delivered is the first in a limited series of just 333 units that will be made. The limited edition R8 GT sold out within weeks of its announcement.

The R8 GT features a weight-reduction of 100 kg over the standard R8 - now down to a curb weight of 1,525 kilograms (3,362 lb). The supercar also features more power from the 5.2 liter V10 engine, which now has an output of 560 PS (412 kW / 552 bhp) delivered to all four wheels via the R tronic gearbox. 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes 3.6 seconds and the R8 GT needs only 10.8 seconds to reach 200 km/h (124 mph). Top speed is 320 km/h (199 mph).

Prices in Germany for the R8 GT begin at €193,000.
