Allan McNish presents the Audi R8 V10

A lot of us know who Allan McNish is, but in the event that you can’t put a face to the name, then we’d be glad to give you a brief introduction. McNish is one of the world’s most accomplished race car drivers, having won the American Le Mans Series twice and also the 24 Hours of Le Mans on another two occasions, with his most recent triumph in 2008. Apart from all of that, McNish is also a former Formula One race car driver.

Apparently, when McNish is not busting chops out on the track, the Scottish racer can be seen taking a few laps in an Audi R8 V10. In this video, the Audi driver dissects the R8 V10 from front to rear, touting that “it’s the best car Audi’s ever built.”

While it’s hard to argue with that assertion, we find it difficult to believe that McNish can say something like that especially considering he once sat behind the wheel of an Audi R15 TDI. Then again, McNish did correct himself at the tail-end of the video. Maybe he meant ‘best production car Audi’s ever built’.

In that case, it would be pretty hard to argue that.
