Just in case you thought Audi was pulling your leg when they announced that they were letting their customers get a chance to get behind the wheel of an Audi R8 LMS racer, here’s video evidence proving that Audi can certainly back up their word.

The video features the first eight individuals that were given the unbelievable opportunity to experience the R8 LMS racer first-hand in all its unbridled power. Each participant was given time to get to know the car and all its intricacies. As soon as the crash course on the race car was finished, it was off to the track for a nice little round of testing.

To the eight folks who got a chance to drive the R8 LMS racer, you won’t believe how envious we are of you.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
