Audi has released a new promotional clip with the R8 V10 Plus showing the 5.2-liter FSI engine.

The video presents the range-topping R8 accelerating at full throttle and unleashing the 550 HP (404 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. It takes the car from 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.5 seconds before hitting a top speed of 197 mph (317 km/h). The car is fitted with a seven-speed S Tronic gearbox which is optionally available for the V8-powered models.

Audi teamed up with YouTube and the Blippar application so users can view the clip by pointing their smartphone at poster or print advertisements with the car, "instantly bringing 2D photographs to life" thanks to the augmented-reality technology.
