Why Does V10 Audi R8 Sound And Look Like It's Powered By Rockets?

Dyno

Maybe that's because it's shooting flames and pushing 1,300 hp.

It’s all too easy to forget about the Audi R8. Yeah it looks cool and has a big engine but it's getting a bit long in the tooth, although a much-needed refresh has just arrived. It's not the fastest car on the track but that doesn't mean it can't get the job done, especially when the R8 in question is a V10 with 1,300 horsepower. While we don't get to see this R8 run a quarter-mile we do get to see it unleash all 1,300 of its horses on the dyno while spitting flames.

Take a moment to watch this video and appreciate the greatness that is a 1,300-horsepower R8 that shoots flames.
