Video: Audi R8 Spyder ’Beauty and the Beasts’ Commercial

Audi has revealed a new commercial for the new R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI quattro. Called "Beauty and the Beasts" this commercial wants to show the qualities of the new sports roadster compared to other cars. Those other cars are old, grungy, dirty hotrods. The commercial simply doesn’t allow for a good comparison. We know the Audi R8 Spyder is hot. Hot enough to be featured in the Ironman 2 trailer and Audi alone is hot enough to name Justin Timberlake its ambassador. So, why the junky hotrods? Come on, Audi. You can do better than that. Pin the Spyder up against some real competition like a slew of Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4s or some Porsche 911 Turbos.

“Beauty and the Beasts” is the spectacular new Audi R8 Spyder commercial. It uses 24 precision drivers, 22 heavily modified ‘beast cars’, 2 R8 Spyders (just in case)…. Watch the advert and the behind the scenes “making of” below.

I agree they’ve replace the suspension with more stiffer but soft enough to compensate with tight cornering and sudden wheel turns.

what an impressive maneuver, I bet the new r8’s suspension are way far better than the previous one.
