Xtremly LOUD and super-exquisite SOUND footage of a 2012 Audi R8 V8 featuring and sick active valve exhaust system (Klappenauspuff). Being totally stock other than that the car features the well-known 4.2 V8 FSI delivering 430 hp through quattro and a 6-speed manual transmission. Although not being the fastest super-car around the block this R8 amazes on every meter your drive it. Even compared to the V10 Spyder we reviewed last year this one is so much more super-car like as it has the deep V8 grunt and blistering exhaust scream unlike most other cars. The mid-engine concept and the “clicky” manual transmission are truly something special and bit “old-school”. As this R8 will be driven by us more often in the future we also plan to release a series of additional videos on YouTube and more background stories on our Facebook page.
