Audi UK drops four new videos with the second generation R8

Audi’s UK division has launched a quartet of videos featuring the all-new second generation R8 supercar.

If you just can’t get enough of the new R8, Audi has a nice treat for you today as they have four new clips to show off their brand new supercar which will have to face some stiff competition coming from the second-gen Honda/Acura NSX which is making the headlines these days. While the NSX has a hybridized V6 turbo layout, the new R8 has a more conventional V10 naturally aspirated engine which will probably be preferred by purists.

As for the attached videos, the first one shows the vehicle being put through its paces at the Parcmotor Castelloli test track outside of Barcelona. The second video is a walkaround look at the V10 Plus version fitted with the optional Audi Laserlight technology while the third clip is perhaps the most interesting as it shows how the original R8 evolved to become what it is today in the second generation.

As for the last video, it’s entitled “The Eye – Experience the all-new Audi R8” and attempts to showcase how the supercar is “mesmerizing and totally absorbing”, especially in the flagship V10 Plus flavor.
