The All Audi R8 Drag Race You Didn’t Know You Needed

I’m certainly not one of those people that wants everyone to get a participation trophy win or lose, but in this case…Trophies for all four of them!

As the original caption for the video points out, it’s not hard to guess which car wins, but you can watch for yourself. After all, it’s over a decade of Audi R8 evolution starting with the V8 and it’s manual gearbox and making its way to the most current V10, but we will breakdown the cars further after the video. What makes the video so uniquely interesting is that you rarely see a make and models evolution in action, but rather just on paper and in photos and seeing it is truly impressive.

In order from oldest to newest:

Original Audi R8
4.2-liter NA V8; 424hp; six-speed manual

2012 Audi R8 GT Spyder
5.2-liter NA V10; 560hp; six-speed automatic single clutch

Audi R8 LMX V10
5.2-liter NA V10; 570hp; seven-speed dual clutch

Audi R8 V10 Performance
5.2-liter NA V10; 620hp; seven-speed dual clutch
