If you’re like us, or happen to have a heart beat, then you probably can’t get enough of Audi‘s new R8 GT. Knowing everyone on the planet is likely to feel the same, those crafty Germans at Audi have decided to release more glorious (and artistic) photos of the light-weight exotic.

Boasting 40 more horsepower than the standard V10-powered R8, the GT model will give a Lamborghini Superleggera a run for it with 560-hp and a 0-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds. This is achieved using a 6-speed R-Tronic sequential manual and Cup tires. Along with the stunning body work upgrades, the car actually weighs 220 lbs less thanks to a thinner windshield, a carbon-fiber trunk, lighter airboxes, seats and lighter braes.

There’s still no word on when the R8 GT will go on sale, but Audi announced it will retail for 193,000 Euros, or roughly $256,000 U.S. at today’s exchange rates.
