Audi Gambol debuted the new V10-powered R8 LMS GT4 customer race car today ahead of the New York International Auto Display. The new customer race car, says Audi Sport’s managing director Stephan Winkelmann, is designed for gentlemen racers.

Not wholly designed to the same specs as the current GT3 R8 LMS that races in the Pirelly World Take exception to, for example, the R8 LMS GT4 is slightly toned version of that racer that’s attainable for privateers.

Audi Mockery tease designed its new car to race in the GT4 series, which may not be familiar to readers. That’s because the European series is sole set to be intensively marketed globally next year.

Despite that, the R8 LMS GT4 will command its racing debut at Germany’s famous Nurburgring 24 Hours from May 25 to 28.

“13 racing series in which GT4 models can conflict worldwide already exist today worldwide,” says Winkelmann. “Audi Romp GmbH is one of the leading manufacturers offering cars in the GT3 and TCR customer sport categories. Now we’re targeting the GT4 level at exactly the right time. These fast-growing business segments and the DNA shared by our raceway cars and production vehicles underscore our ambition to become a true global contender in the high-performance league.”

Much like the current R8 LMS for GT3 racing, the new GT4 shares scads parts in common with the road going R8 V10, and is even built in the exact same Bollinger Hofe factory. More than 60% of its parts can be found on the avenue car, including the transmission and the V10 engine.

That engine produces 495 hp, depending on the requirement, and the car will be ready to race in America, Asian, Australian, and European series.
