Audi R8 V10 – Sliding Thru

Now you know what can be done with wide open spaces, what an amazing job drifting. I am big fan of the Audi R8, and since introducing the V10 version they have really made the perfect machine. Previously it has amazing handling but just a bit underpowered with the V8, but with the V10 its a perfect combination. This video speaks wonders for the machine, they are trying to make a short video which I think is an Audi Ad using an Air Strip and a blue Audi R8 V10. He puts it through the perfect drift, and then slide after slide, I wish we had roads like that to put our cars through its paces.

MTM Audi R8 GT3-2

The Audi R8 is an intriguing machine that has taken the supersports by storm, amazingly handling and powerful machine, but it just needed a little tweak to make it that monster on the street. That is why there are successful German aftermarket companies such as MTM around. They have turned this V8 R8 into a different type of creature on the road based on its many modifications turning it into the GT3-2.

The modified 4.2 Liter V8 has been done but the modification to the drivetrain is something new. The Quattro since has been changed to a pure rear wheel driving machine, changing the driving dynamics of the machine behind that Audi steering wheel. Carbon fiber aerodynamic parts, large front and rear brakes, adjustible suspension, Bilstein adjustable suspension, MTM’s Bimoto forged wheels are some of the changes made. For the most important part being the modified engine bringing it to 560 bhp and 428 lb-ft, a little more pull then the R8 V10 and a different driving experience.
