* for $450,000 or so.

Audi announced Wednesday that it would make available its race-winning R8 LMS GT3 car for anyone comfortable with its $443,348.12 price tag and access to the race series for which this car is appropriate.

For your cool half-mil you get the R8 LMS, presumably that wing, some spare parts and 585 of the loudest horsepowers you could imagine. Customers can order their cars starting today. (Take a check?)

According to Audi, 135 buyers purchased the last generation R8 GT3 car. That may pale in comparison to the 2,400 or so who purchased the last Porsche GT3 Cup car, but the current-generation V-10 R8 LMS car already has pedigree: it won the 24 Hours of Nurburgring in May.

For the discerning gentleman racer, there’s always the Aston Martin Vantage GT3.

      Frend!~ Be very wary and careful, exposing a phone number of yourself with such numericals over an Internet. Once, as they say, there "out there" for good, with no chance for repose! Even in my Country, sometimes where there is not as good as connection for Electronic Internet like upper country like downtown Romania or something (you know, of connection of quality of IS-P provide like Verizn (ha!)) the numericals can still be spread circumference, without caution or waiting. Even speed like they show of Flash Gordons' -zap!_. This advice I have to tell for you, as it may seem you are of high-bearing and do not know usually inner-working-treatment like Internet of 2010+ can be for today. I know.

    Hmm. Should I spend $443,348.12 on an Audi racecar? Or should I buy a used Nogaro Blue S4 for $12,000 and spend $436,348.12 in parts and labor to fix it? Oh the choices.

    If the TUSCC R8's in the GTD class are any indication, it's actually disappointingly quiet. I've seen them run in person at Daytona and could barely make them out over the other cars.
