Audi has confirmed that it is working on a brand new Audi R8 LMS racer to participate in GT3 racing categories around the world.
While no specific details about the car have been revealed, Audi has announced that customer deliveries of the new R8 LMS will begin at the end of 2014 with participation in both the 24 hour races at the Nurburgring and Spa-Francorchamps set to be the highlights.
From a visual standpoint, the new Audi R8 LMS will receive brand new headlights similar in shape to those from the third-generation TT. Additionally, the same rectangular taillights of the road-car will be used. Elsewhere though, virtually all the body panels and elements of the R8 LMS will be brand new.
For example, a recent prototype spied testing at the Monza circuit in Italy featured flared wheel arches, enlarge air intakes on the doors as well as a prominent rear diffuser and top mounted wing.
