It feels very similar to the 1-er spy shot.
This looks like a film still-perhaps from an upcoming Audi commercial?

Roadside bomb/carnage/critics who say the R8 shouldn't have gone into production w.out additional body armour.
So the deal here with the 1-er shot in the desert and the R8 old-timey race is back to the future because the present is rather uncomfortable?
Or is this just good ol' nostalgia for a past that never existed?
