Audi, as many know, is a German company. In Germany, there is a racing series with the super long name of Veranstaltergemeinschaft Langstreckenpokal Nürburgring, or VLN for short.
As evidenced in the name, there is a tiny, little known strip of tarmac that winds its way through a forest in the middle of nowhere, near a town called Nürburg. And Audi has had quite a bit of success on that little known racetrack.
All joking aside, Audi’s R8 LMS Ultra GT racing car has won the 24 Hours of Nürburgring, the ultimate endurance challenge of the VLN, five times. The current R8 V10 Performance is also a car that shares 50% of its parts and structure with the R8 LMS Ultra.
