Warm up your line of credit, it's about to get a workout: the 2012 Audi R8 GT starts from $196,800--excluding the $1,250 delivery fee, bringing the pre-tax, title, and license tally to $198,050. That's about what we expected, though, so there's no sticker shock.
How could there be, really, with a limited-edition, 333-unit line (only 90 of which are coming to the U.S.) of the most finely-tuned factory R8s available? Pumping 560 horsepower from its 5.2-liter V-10 engine, sending it to all four wheels through an R tronic sequential manual transmission, and racking up 199 mph top speed with 3.6-second 0-60 mph time, the R8 GT is a mid-engine four-ringer's delight.
