Artwork: The "Crocodile" Audi R8

By Tarek Ramchani

The American Le Mans Series had a special season finale in the year 2000. The ALMS moved Down Under to Australia, for a race at Adelaide. The event was held on new year's eve, and was called the "Race of a Thousand Years". Audi entered a pair of factory Audi R8 LMP cars. One of them carried a very special livery. The #77 Audi R8 shared by Dindo Capello and Allan McNish had a great paint scheme as a tribute to Australia. The car known as the "Crocodile" Audi R8 won the event in the end.

Here is a great recreation of that stunning livery in Forza Motorsport 4. The design was made by RaptorGhost54 from the French Forza Motorsport community. The result looks great and very close to the real life car.
