Today we’ll show you a new video documenting the incredible speed recorded by a stock version of the German sports car Audi R8 V10 Plus in a straight-line aerodynamic testing session that took place in Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds at Space Florida’s Shuttle Landing Facility Merritt Island, Florida.
Before we talk about this great speed, we would like to remind you, dear Arab GT followers, that we have already test-driven Audi R8 V10 Plus in detail in one of the episodes of the Test Drive Program with Karim Deeb.
Watch The Video:
