Audi R8 LMS ultra vs R8 V10 road car

This new video from DRIVE sees Chris Harris experience what most people would class as a dream day: comparing Audi’s R8 LMS ultra racecar with the road-going R8 V10 – on the Nurburgring Grand Prix Circuit.

Both propelled by that muscular 5.2-litre V10 engine, the S tronic-equipped road car has 386 kW (525 hp) and 530 Nm of torque to play with, while regulatory restrictors bring that figure down in the LMS ultra. It does, however, make up for that deficit thanks to such goodies as that extreme aero package, fully adjustable traction control and braking software, and a sequential, pneumatically activated 6-speed transmission.

No wonder he’s begging Audi to give him a seat.
