Creventic BV built the first race-orientated Audi R8, called the Creventic CR8, even before the German carmaker themselves unveiled the GT3 version of the R8. The Creventic Audi R8 CR8 is powered by a 4163cc V8 engine that outputs 440 hp at 8000 rpm and 445 Nm of torque. The engine is coupled with a 6-speed transmission and the Dutch company only made two of these bespoke cars. After a development and test period of about 18 months, the goal was to build a fantastic race version of the Audi R8 with the performance of a Porsche GT3 Carrera Cup car, and with this car, this goal appears to have been achieved. The car incorporates a complete carbon bodyshell including a carbon wing a carbon splitter, carbon floor and carbon diffuser all decreasing weight but increasing the car's drivability. The vendor reports that various professional drivers, who've driven this car over the years, say that it's really tight to drive and inspires confidence. It's equipped with 18inch BBS racing rims, carbon interior, AIM dash and a data logger, a central wheel nut system a 120 Litre FIA tank and a central race radiator. This Audi R8 racer is an ideal endurance car with the big Brembo discs coupled with good brake cooling and pads that we are told could last for 24 hours, driven appropriately. It fits very well in the class SP2-GT3A or SP3 class at the various Creventic rounds plus, we're informed, GT Cup, Britcar, VLN and GT Open could also be options. Offered with a spares package and a whole spare engine included in the price, this Lot is a comprehensive package.
