The Marshall Pruett Podcast is bet on a support with another aural wonder. This time, recorded from the cockpit of the Audi’s 2005 Le Mans contender, from the HSR 24-Hour antiquated event at Daytona International Speedway.

Although it wasn’t the fastest in qualifying at Le Mans go in 2005, R8s would come first, third, and fourth at the race.

For the Daytona excellent event, the car was driven by Andy Wallace, a Le Mans legend who raced the R8C in 1999, the antecedent to the R8s that would dominate endurance racing for a decade and a half.

The R8 itself is powered by a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V8 revving making between 635 and 650 hp and revving all the way up to 7,800 rpm.

That was admissible enough to give Wallace the pole at the Daytona event, though the car eventually retired from the bed due to technical issues. Wallace’s time, though, was so good that the 12-year-old Audi was only one second off the time set by the 2017 Cadillac DPi-V.R.
