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.
