The world of supercar fans having been waiting to catch a glimpse of the upcoming 2015 Audi R8 V10. You all are just in luck, Audi has released a video of their 610 horsepower R8 V10 Plus, the top of the line R8, going bonkers at the Ascari racetrack in Spain. In the video, Audi’s test pilot Frank Stippler, can be seen putting the supercar through its paces. The second generation R8 V10, not only produces more power (in the ‘Plus’ guise) than the previous iteration, but also comes with a more advanced quattro all-wheel drive system.

The new system can channel/distribute all of its 600+ horses from the vicious 5.2-litre V10, to any of the two axles of the car. This means that the 2015 R8 V10, can either become a rear-wheel, or front-wheel drive car, if the situation demands. This ensures optimum traction during all times and makes sure that you, the driver, don’t ever veer off the tarmac when you poke the R8 with a stick. Though this is an Audi, as you are about to see, the R8 V10 can, in the right hands, become a hooligan.
