Audi announced on Monday how much the R8 V10 GT will cost in the U.S. This is the last car that Audi will make with a V-10 engine.

A $1,495 destination charge, $595 for paint, and a $1,300 gas guzzler tax are added to the base price of $249,900. 

So, each of the 150 units planned for the U.S., out of 333 planned worldwide, will cost $253,290. 

The R8 V10 GT will be sold in the U.S. as a 2023 model, and dealers should start getting them at the beginning of the 2023 calendar year.

For the U.S. version of the R8 V10 GT, the familiar 5.2-liter engine has been tuned to make 602 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. 

That's the same amount of power as models of the R8 with all-wheel drive, and it makes the Audi GT the most powerful rear-wheel-drive production car Audi has ever made. 

Audi expects the car to go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 199 mph.

The 7-speed dual-clutch automatic in the R8 has also had its gear ratios changed to make shifting faster. 

A new Torque Rear mode lets the driver change how much the electronic stability control kicks in. You can choose from seven levels of Torque Rear.

Compared to the standard R8 V10 RWD coupe, the R8 V10 GT loses 55 pounds, bringing its curb weight down to 3,516 pounds.

 This was made possible by using Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres on 20-inch lightweight alloy wheels, carbon-ceramic brake rotors, a carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic anti-roll bar,

All-black lettering and badges, a new front splitter, flics, code skirt covers, attachments on the sides of the rear fascia, a rear diffuser

Black paint is also used on the intake manifold. Carbon fibre is also used on the side blades, door-sill inlays, and outside mirror housings of cars that are sold in the U.S.
