    I don’t even like the R8 but that’s some badass advertising. I’ll take two.

    Love the “normal” R8 but this V10 looks and sounds amazing. I want one, I don’t think the trade in of a golf and a Corsa will get me remotely close.

    They are utterly awesome cars. Life goal complete when I buy mine.

    Sounds nice but not a patch 4 RR Merlins on the same aircraft. πŸ™‚

    It’s such a great, simple advert. That noise is sex.

    Do they offer a camera in the engine bay as an optional extra, so you can watch the blue flame from the exhaust every time you down shift?

    That is an awesome advert.

    So different from everything else you normally see, simple and effective.

    And I want one, in every colour, now !

    Looks like an old shed compared to a 458.

    My dad was sat between them 2 weeks ago, in the bomb aimers seat. Said it was deafening! From what i heard from my position, I’m inclined to agree….

    Agreed.

    Still stunning though, but the 458 is spectacular πŸ™‚

    If you want to look like a chav, just get a Corsa SRI and save your money.

    The R8 is just an awesome piece of engineering and that advert brings back memories and heart stopping excitement i doubt i’ll ever experience again. A mate bought one of the last ABT RS4’s with full option package back in 2007 but he sold it last year as he only managed to do 5000 miles in 5 years of ownership. I had it advertised on here for a while but even at the low price of Β£35k no-one wanted it, he’s still got his ABT Q7 4.2 TDI though with 400bhp/900nm of torque so it’s not all bad. Anyway….coz he bought those above he got invited over to Spa by ABT to collect his RS4 and try out the ABT R8 and i went along for a jolly as his GF/partner ain’t that interested as she used to read his pace notes in his swb Quattro so fast cars on a track ain’t nothing special to her. We got to spend all day on the circuit courtesy of Audi/ABT hospitality with their full fleet of tweaked Audi’s at our (or rather my mates disposal)…..I literally would quite happily gnaw my own left bollock off to own an ABT R8, the engine noise on the above vid made the hairs on my arm stand up and my heart started to race just like it did 5 yrs ago, admittingly it was only the R8 V8 version we tried back then but it was still frighteningly fast and it howled like a banshee.

    I’ll have to pester him to organise a test drive in the R8 V10, that engine note is just so addictive it’s like car crack.

    I was lucky enough to drive a 458 last year and it is an awesome car. Managed to lap an R8 in it.

    Just dont play at full volume!

    Saw it yesterday in glorious loud Dolby digital 5.1 and was stunned. Brill advert !

    Very simple and effective ad that. The car is still great but look what we’ve put in the engine bay πŸ˜†

    Brings back memories of the Renault F1 engines Williams were using on the early 90’s, flames and all!!

    While we’re talking about adverts for sportscars what do you guys think of the FILM that Jaguar made to launch the F-Type?

    skip to 1:00 for feature πŸ˜‰

    Admittedly that’s the V8 but still an interesting view.

    I went around the Audi special products unit near Heilbronn a couple of months ago and watched the R8s being riveted and glued together (edit: in fact they use seven or eight sophisticated methods of assembling the things including glue and rivets). They look good from the outside but didn’t appeal at all – claustrophobic and poor visibility. On the other hand the A4 cabrios going down the line in the next workshop ticked all the boxes apart from carrying three or four people and their mountain bikes.

    the old r8 v10 is 320 bhp/tonne, the s8 260 bhp/tonne

    Saw a British plated R8 drive past us today in the Algarve, going very sedately for such a powerful car.

    Meh. I’d have an R8 any time, but I wouldn’t touch a 458. It’s very pretty, but I have no lust for Ferrarri, except for an original 250GTO.

    My cousin had one (not the V10) but no sooner had he got it that he split with his wife and it went (and before I got to drive it) πŸ™
