This is the first one I've heard of or seen. I've been looking ever since I got one in Need for Speed Shift (which I no longer play)

There is a body out there that comes with a kit, but I don't know the manufactuer or if the body is sold separately.

Wow, I think that RTR R8 is an official Audi product base on the box appears in the photos.

Reely do a version of the R8 (and S3, RS4 Avant and RS6 Avant, even a Q7), and I think Thunder Tiger also do one, but I may have that confused with a TT

The body looks awesome in red or white and with the rear wing and decals seems to be priced well at $29.95. Too bad it isn't available in 190mm width as I'd run one on my Tamiya TA-05V2 sedan for club racing.

It's a shame RCGT was dismembered. You hardly see any of the HPI offset wheels being used anymore since the push to cheaper premount alternatives. That red body is a perfect example of a car that begs to have the right offset wheels. It looks odd without them. TCS had it right all along.....stick with 190mm and wheels are hardly ever a problem.

If it is so difficult to find the right offset wheels, maybe some thicker wheel hubs/spacers is the solution?
