Audi gave the R8 two more cylinders. After hearing this video of the sonorous engine note, and seeing the new gallery below, we're thinking buyers of inferior 4.2-liter models'll be clamoring to trade them in.


Just listen to the wail coming from the Audi R8 V10's 5.2 liter FSI V10 as it pumps out 525 horsepower and 391 lb-ft of torque. If this doesn't make your day better, then what the heck will? Audi released 23 new images to go along with the driving clips and really helps to make this updated R8 one of our favorites.
