After Ferrari revealed a video showing the 458 Italia doing burnouts in order to celebrate its 8 million Facebook fans, Audi is trying to steal their thunder by unveiling a similar video. The German company is celebrating their 500,000 German Facebook fans with a video showing the Audi R8 drifting in the hands of Dindo Capello somewhere in Barcelona, Spain
Make sure you check out the video and remember, not to try any of this at home. Capello is a professional and more than likely, this was performed on a closed course.
As a reminder, the Audi R8 is powered by a 5.2 liter V10 engine that delivers 518 HP and 391 lb-ft of torque. The future R8 will be even more impressive with a retuned V10 that will produce 533 HP. This engine will be mated with a new seven-speed dual clutch S-tronic gearbox.
