The German Car bloggers located this video of Audi's new R8 supercar getting a proper workout on Germany's N rburgring. The video's from AutoExpress, and its soundtrack seems to disprove speculation that the Gallardo-based R8 would get a high-performance diesel mill culled from the V12 TDI in Audi's LeMans-winning R10 car. Instead, it'll likely enter production with a 450-hp version of Audi's V10, and undercut the entry Lambo on price, while slotting just above the 425-hp RS4. Pretty sneaky, Auto Union.
