Spending time with any iteration of the Audi R8 is a glorious occasion. Your life becomes brighter, and everyone you pass on the street feels a bit better about their day for just having seen one. Audi wants you to experience this for yourself, and you're going to need to flex your Twitter muscles to make it happen.

Using the hashtag #WantAnR8, Audi wants you to explain all of the reasons why you would, um, want an R8. Sounds silly, but it paid off nicely for Audi R8 fan Joanne McCoy. She spoke of her love of the sultry German sports car, and Audi promptly loaned her one for the weekend.

Audi plans to hand over the keys to a few more fans, and will also run the #WantAnR8 program during the upcoming Petit Le Mans race. Attendees at the racing event could tool around for a few hours in an R8 of their "own".

Click past the jump to watch Joanne spend some time with her favorite sports car.

      But Glucker gets laid off for promoting Nissan. I know this is AB-sanctioned, but please.

        My first thought, too. It was yesterday! But his article was so beneath AB...

      I just saw the video and i can't help but feel envious! Ever since i saw R8 in the movie Ironman, i wanted it! I even watched its episode in National geographics of how they make R8. As much as i want this car, it also reminds me that dreams are way to far from reality.. I can't afford to buy my own car. Anyway, you're a very lucky girl joane.. Enjoy and take care of our dream car:-)
