The 2012 Audi R8 GT‘s transmission is  the quattro Auto R Tronic gearbox, which is a great addition to the cars powerful engine. 0 to 60 MPH in 3.6 seconds is a bit slower than our previous post about the 2011 Ferrari 458 Italia, but faster than the Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster and the 2012 Aston Martin Virage.

If you have the money, this is definitely a collector’s item because only 90 are coming to North America. The 2012 Audi R8 GT is full of features like the Carbon Fiber trim, Aluminum stick shifter, contrasted trim and stitching, and smooth Alcantara®  surfaces, and multifunction seats and steering wheel.

The 2012 Audi R8 GT is one of the only supercars that continues to use a drive stick instead of paddle shifters, but the detail on the Aluminum/Carbon Fiber shifter is a great conversation piece within the beautiful 2-seater.

From the passenger’s side looks just as good from the driver’s side!.
