Video: EVO Drives the Audi R8 LMS Ultra Share Comments For many, the Volkswagen brand is a stepping stone towards something more upscale. With that said, the interior quality, comfort and power trains that the brand offers do a pretty phenomenal job of keeping ex-Volkswagen owners in the family, whether that move is to Audi or to Porsche. Perhaps the most aspirational of all moves for many enthusiasts like us, is the track-day specials that come straight from Porsche Motorsport or Audi Sport. Recently, EVO Magazine was lucky enough to climb aboard one such vehicle to get a taste of what we’ve all been missing. The result of their time in one of Audi’s R8 LMS cars isn’t so much of a review as it is roughly 10 minutes of V10 exhaust note- not that that’s a bad thing. Hotshoe Dickie Meaden is able to get a few words out while driving the car though, and as you’d expect, its mostly praise. Having just spent a week in a road-going R8 V10 Plus on behalf of our sister site Fourtitude, I can certainly see how a pure race version would be the drive of a lifetime. If you’ve got the cash, Team Phoenix actually has two of these things for sale. Additional info on those cars can be found right here.
