New video from of the Audi R8 LMS careening around a racetrack has come to us from the German automaker. The very entertaining two minute video clip shows the racecar motoring through its paces on a racetrack.

How do you improve on perfection?  That is the opening line for Audi's new promotional video on the Audi R8 LMS.  The well-shot, fun to watch, two minute long video shows the Audi R8 LMS as it jumps off the line and takes a blazing fast lap around a racetrack.

As we previously reported, the LMS will be a part of Formula GT3 beginning next year, with LMS customers as the actual race drivers.  As many as eight of these drivers will compete in a variety of European circuits.

Getting 500 horsepower from its V10, the Audi R8 LMS will be a sought after variant for fans of the R8.  The car has a six speed sequential gearbox so the driver can take full control as he or she pushes the car around the track.  The Audi R8 LMS comes with a €262,000 pre-tax price tag.
