It would be kind of a dream come true for your average gear head to get their hands on a professional-level racing vehicle. Unfortunately, even if you had the cash for it, they virtually never go on sale to the general public. Well, Audi is looking to change that a bit with the introduction of their R8 LMS GT4.

To be clear, this isn’t the first time the brand has offered up a racing version of their cars for sale – they’ve done it before in 2015 and 2016 – but this new version promises to potentially be the absolute best. While the LMS GT4 shares more than 60% of its part with the road-going R8 coupe, this version is 100% competition ready in 13 worldwide racing series. The LMS GT4 will also offer up to 495 horsepower (the maximum allowed per racing regulations) and is set to go into production by the end of the 2017 racing season – at which point the brand should have received racing approval. If you’re looking to get your feet wet in the amateur racing circuits, keep your eyes peeled for this brilliant car in the coming months.
