APR Motorsport has already committed to racing the Audi R8 LMS in the 2012 Rolex Grand Am series. But this is the first actual photo of the Grand Am prepped car, on track at today's test session at Daytona.
We're not sure what this Audi R8's owner had in mind with this paint choice for his car's sideblades. It's certainly a high-quality job, and admittedly creative, but it's hard to get around the fact that it's also incredibly ugly.
Buying a high-end sports car often involves trusting a whole chain of professionals. What happens when one person in that chain hands over the key fob of an Audi R8 to a group of 17-year-olds? Hoon school, caught on tape.
Drivers in this morning's Bullrun Rally crash were racing according to a police report from the Florida Highway Patrol, which also identifies 30-year-old Greg Roselli as the driver of the Audi R8 that wrecked.
A competitor in this year's Bullrun Rally caused a five-car crash when an Audi R8 apparently lost control near Orlando, Florida on the multi-state, high-speed rally from Las Vegas to Miami. The driver was arrested and Ice-T was apparently there. UPDATE.
Growing up on a farm often means learning to drive wheeled machines as soon as one can reach the pedals. But most farms don't have an Audi R8, nor a parent working to turn his 11-year-old son into the next Sebastian Vettel.
Look, we hate hybrids as much as any god-fearin' 'murican with a fear of over-complexity in our cars, but a parking sign's a parking sign. And this shot of an Audi R8 parked in what is clearly not one, but two spots — one for hybrids and the other for motorcycles — is why this Audi R8 driver is clearly an asshat.
Police in Germany were called to the scene of a domestic dispute involving an armed man in an Audi R8 who, upon noticing the officer, started opening fire. A pursuit followed and the German police managed to get 37 rounds into the R8 and four into the driver.
When is an Audi TT an Audi R8? Despite what Afzal Kahn may render in his English workshop, the answer is never. But if you've got the bucks, you can get pretty close. At least visually.
Remember the Audi R8 GT, the lighter, faster version of the gentleman's supercar? It seems Audi's building one that's nearly the same, only sans top. Sans is French for "nope, doesn't have one."
The Audi R8 has offered tuners a near-perfect canvas to work their dark arts, with a pleasing shape that can take a little tweaking, but not too much. German tunerhaus Anderson's Hyper Black R8 V-10 is more dark than art.
Wiping feces on the car door handle of a Czech singer's Audi R8 and taping the hapless victim is what constitutes a prank these days? Jeesh. In my day we just dumped Biff into a truck full of manure.
An Audi R8. A snow-covered parking lot. A disregard for property financial well-being approaching Charlie Sheen levels. It's a delight to watch.
The Audi R8 GT drops weight, adds power, and oozes sex. It's how they say "good morning" in Detroit... three days a year.
Manchild Matt Farah says the 710 hp STaSIS V10 R8 is so good it leaves him speechless. Unfortunately, when he can't speak he lets out an unnerving maniacal laugh. It's the only thing that'll make you want more commentary.
The 2010 Race of Champions is being held this weekend in Dusseldorf, Germany. Watch F1 driver Heikki Kovalainen wipe out in his Audi R8 after a suspension failure during today's first race. (Hat Tip to D-Fence)
