A very speedy Audi R8 GT, seen in front of the Volkswagen Technical Development Center inside the 798 art district in Beijing by reader Steven Li, thank you very much for the pictures! The good vehicle is painted and gold and made even faster with gray-black racing stripes and racy alloys in black and some gold. The license plate reads 423R8 and that is one of the best license plates we have seen on an Audi R8 in China so far.
