Audi R8 Spyder massive crash

This is an unbelievable view of a car crash happening at a high rate of
speed. Please drive carefully!
In 2011 while on the Bullrun rally I witnessed a massive accident unfold
right in front of me. The driver of the Audi R8 Spyder was changing lanes
and did not see the Mercedes SL55 next to him and made contact with the car
at a high rate of speed. Once he made contact with the Mercedes the R8
bounced off and lost control causing him to slam into the back of a Honda.
Both the Audi and the Honda entered the fast lane where the car I was
riding in was traveling and we came extremely close to being tangled up in
the accident as well.
The Mercedes that was involved in the accident was owned by Ice T and he
pulled over to check the damage to his car and was able to continue
driving. The cause of the accident according to the police report was a
blown out tire and the Audi R8 was a total write off.
2014 Nissan GT-R Track Pack vs 2014 Audi R8 V-10 Plus! - Head 2 Head Episode 33
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend's Carlos Lago pits the 2014
Nissan GT-R Track Pack against the 2014 Audi R8 V-10 Plus. Performance
wise, both these all-wheel drive monsters represent the cream of the crop
from their respective manufacturers. Nissan's GT-R comes out of the gate
swinging with it's track pack, but the R8 packs a twin-clutch transmission
as well as more power than previous R8's. In between some dynamic testing &
canyon carving, Randy Pobst weighs in with his two cents as he joins Carlos
at the Streets of Willow racetrack. Does Audi's V-10 goliath have what it
takes to topple the legendary "Godzilla"?

Audi R8 coupe 2013 review - CarBuyer

Audi shocked the industry when it introduced its stunning R8 supercar in
2006. It was the German company's first demonstration of how it could
compete with the established supercar giants with only a little help from
Lamborghini -- a sub-brand of the VW Group. As a result, the Audi R8 shares
some DNA with the Lamborghini Gallardo, but is far cheaper to buy and
easier to drive, without losing any sense of occasion or its head turning
looks. A supercar that you really can use everyday, the R8 may not be
particularly practical, but it's genuinely comfortable and comes keenly
priced if you avoid the extensive options list. That said, a host of
updates at the start of 2013 improved equipment, with all cars getting LED
headlights, sat-nav and heated leather seats as standard. There is a choice
of V8 and V10, with a faster V10
Plus model for those craving a little more power and an even sportier
Mat: When Audi introduced the R8 in 2008 they proved to the world they
could make a supercar that can compete with the Ferrari and Lamborghini.
Yet because it's an Audi it's almost as easy to live with as an A3!
But now to keep the R8 feeling fresh Audi has just updated it with some
design tweaks. There's restyled nose with all LED lamps while the back
features new Exhaust surrounds and the
coolest indicators in the world.
Audi has also added a new model to the range. It's called the V10 Plus and
gets a more aggressive chassis set up, a 25bhp power upgrade over the
normal V10, ceramic brakes and plenty of carbon fiber.
It even has more carbon fiber inside such has here on the dash and gets
bucket seats as standard. However, Audi has upped the equipment list on the
other models too. The normal V10 now gets extended leather while all
versions now come with sat-nav, iPod connectivity, heated seats and mobile
phone preparation standard.
The R8 has the classic mid-engined super car set up. You can go for a
4.2-litre V8 version with 424hp, which can 0-62mph in around four and a
half seconds. But while that's easily fast enough you don't want that one
because that engine is also available in an A4 Estate car. What you want is
the V10 because not only does it have over 500bhp the engine comes from a
Lamborghini Gallardo and it makes the R8 not only feel and sound like a
If there was one problem with the old R8 it was that it's auto box was a
bit rubbish. But I have some good news. Audi has given the R8 a new dual
clutch seven speed automatic gearbox which is brilliant. It's so good I'd
recommend it over the manual. In auto mode it's smooth enough for pottering
round town and if you want to change gears yourself using the paddles the
car will swap cogs faster than you
There's another benefit to the automatic model. It includes launch control
and when engaged the 543bhp V10 Plus can sprint from 0-62mph in just 3.5
Okay to operate it I put my foot on the brake, select sport mode for the
gearbox and the stability control, floor the throttle then release the
brake.... And that's 60 I better back off, I don't want to brake the law.
We don't do that here at CarBuyer.
To be fair it's quite easy to find yourself above the speed limit in the R8
is so easy to drive fast. The all wheel drive system provides oodles of
grip, the steering is sharp and unless you have a spirit level you won't
notice any lean through corners. This is a super car which will flatter the
novice with it's balance and stability yet it's capability and rear-drive
bias means it will entertain the expert too.
On top of all this the R8 is very comfy for a supercar, especially if you
go for the magnetic ride adaptable suspension which is standard on the V10.
Unfortunately this V10 plus doesn't have them. Instead it gets bespoke
lowered stiffer fixed spring suspension. And while this, revised steering
and the carbon ceramic brakes make it even better to drive on track they
don't make it better to drive on the road, which if you are honest is where
you'll be driving your R8 most of the time....
As for other problems, the cabin may be well built, however the design is
starting to look a little dated, especially the infotainment system which
doesn't even come with digital radio. And seeing as this is a CarBuyer
review we need to talk about practicality. Yes it's supercar so it's never
going to be very good but R8's meagre storage makes even a Porsche 911 seem
like family friendly transport.
Finally there's the high running costs and the price, but actually compared
to other supercars this Audi is incredible value. And really there are few
cars even at twice the price, which can turn heads like the R8 especially
this V10 Plus in matte blue paint. Job done.
