Pic Of The Week: Audi R8 LMS GT3

No livery or logos, just the paintwork it was born with

You don't often see a racing car without a livery and logos these days, which isn't necessarily a bad thing as fellow JPS, Gulf or Alitalia admirers will attest.

Still, it's sometimes nice to see a racing car unadulterated by the graphic excesses of commercial sponsors, as PHer TankRS pointed out earlier this week. He was commenting in the thread about Audi's GT3 spec R8 'customer racer' demo car, which some of you may have noticed we had a ride in on Monday with Allan McNish at the wheel.

LAT Photographic had a staffer on the ground at Silverstone to record the day for posterity, and this is one of their man's more artistic efforts. Worthy desktop fodder, surely?

"Artistic", for which read "oddly lit, focused on an odd part of the bodywork, and with the sort of 'motion blur' that I'd have binned it immediately."

Personal opinion of course.

I've had an even better view of one of these, 10 points for the first person to work out what I'm in (specifically)...

R8 bit right, and as it's not the V8 it's the V10. The real points go to the person that works out what tuner provided that car... it is possible if you're really geeky.

I'm guessing this has something to do with the red stripes on the air intakes?

We have a winner.

R8 V10 MTM Spyder.

Fairly rapid, had fun troubling the GT3 along the straights.
