You may remember last week's unveiling of the Audi R8 GT took place at the rather unique venue of the 2010 Grand Prix de Monaco Historique - a vintage event where the the return of two Auto Union Silver Arrows (a Type C and Type D with Hans Stuck and Jacky Ickx at the wheel respectively) likely was just as significant to attendees as the GT's global launch. For racing and Audi enthusiasts alike, the event hit on many levels and since we didn't attend we empathized with our readers in yearning for a better look inside this amazing weekend with pre-war V16s and V12s bellowing down the Monaco circuit or a nighttime unveiling of the R8 GT atop an amazing (even by Monaco standards) yacht.
