The Sound Of The New R8 Is Everything You Hope For And More

Video

The 600-hp naturally-aspirated V10 is one of the sweetest sounding engines you'll ever hear.

Having debuted back in March at the Geneva Motor Show, the all-new Audi R8 will soon be hitting the road and track as buyers take possession of their new four-ring supercar. Listening to the naturally-aspirated V10 fire up and rev for the first time gives you an idea of what a beast the second-gen R8 really is. In V10 Plus guise, it packs 610 hp and 413lb-ft of torque. Mated to Audi’s rapid-shifting seven-speed S tronic transmission, the range-topping R8 will fly to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds, on to a top speed of 205 mph.

While we look forward to experiencing that, enjoy this engine soundtrack as a tasty aperitif. It's guaranteed to give you an appetite for the main course. Hat tip to Giovanni!
