2013 Audi R8 5.2 V10 Plus launch control acceleration video from 0-300 km/h
After seeing the excellent 2013 Audi R8 V10 plus dyno pull video here is another vehicle of this model this time in real world action. MotorSport Magazine France was able to do a launch control test all the way up to 300 km/h (186 miles per hour). The car flat out flies to 160 km/h or 100 miles per hour and then charges quickly and steadily to 300 km/h. It does slow a bit past the 260 km/h range but that is to be expected.
The car simply blasts through the lower gears at incredible speed. Not much is going to be able to hang with this from a stop even in stock form. And with some UGR turbos? Forget about it. Great video but it would have been nice to see the tachometer as well instead of just the speedometer.
