Watch The Audi R8 V10 Plus Roar | Video


In this new promotional clip, Audi reveals a stripped-down R8 V10 Plus accelerating at full throttle as the camera swivels around to reveal the exposed 5.2 liter FSI engine. The glorious noise that accompanies the unleashing of all 550 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque -- allowing a 0 to 62 miles per hour sprint time of just 3.5 seconds -- is fit to be channeled through premium headphones. Meanwhile, the exhaust manifolds glowing bright orange, punctuated by bursts of blue flame that accompany each shift, make up a rousing light show to go along with the motorized symphony of sound.
