How do I turn my Audi R8 into a race car?

11 replies 270 views Edited Jan 29, 2011

I spent almost 200 grand on an Audi R8 so I could turn it into a race car to use it in Bonus Race 5 (with the prize of 2,000,000 credits). But I go to the maintenance shop and it said I'm not allowed to put racing modifications on the car...

200,00 credits isnt even that many credits, stay focused and move on from your terrible loss.

It seems you are quite confused about how car upgrades work so I'm going to try and break this all down for you.  I am assuming the R8 you are talking about is the Audi R8 4.2 FSI R tronic '07 or the Audi R8 5.2 FSI Quattro '09.  These are street cars and cannot be modified into actual race cars.  You can add lots of upgrades but race cars they will never be.  There are only 17 cars that you can do the actual race car mods that are done in GT Auto and you can easily find that list with any search engine.  Also before you do the race mods do NOT buy any other upgrades first as they will not be there anymore after you do the race mods and you will have wasted that money.  I think you have probably seen the R8 race cars you are wanting in races and there are 4 different versions of an R8 race car you have to either purchase these or win them.  Hope that helps.

The Audi R8 is already a high performance "super car", or what's commonly referred to as a GT car (NOT a "street car" ). There are upgrades you can make, like intake filters and such, that will boost the performance. What's more important is lightening the car, so that it handles better.

I have a R8 RM car.  I won it from a endurance race, but it's a standard car, not premium.  Both the standard and premium look the same yet you can't RM the premium, don't understand that one.

You can't give racing mods to every car.
