R8 V10 caught on video bombing around ‘Ring

Video has been taken of an Audi in it’s natural, quattro-driven turf: the epic Nurburgring in the soaking-wet rain. As we previously reported, the R8 convertible(aka Spider) will only come with the V10 with the 4.2L V8 from the RS4 not a option for the top-tiered convertible. That said, lucky owners of the R8 Spider will have more than enough horsepower to make up for only one engine with 525HP and 391 ft-lbs of torque. The 60MPH mark can be expected to arrive in a short 4 seconds and thankfully, the R8 Spider is only a few short months away when it debuts in September at the Frankfurt Autoshow.

Well, we say, why not take some time to listen to the incredible exhaust note of the R8 Spider in its 5.2L V10 glory to help pass the next few months until the debut.
