A few weeks ago, our clandestine spy photographers brought home the first good look at the next-generation Audi R8. We were all pretty stoked.

Seemingly following the game plan of the recently shown Audi TT, the next R8 looks to be an evolutionary update on a supercar form that pretty much everyone loves.

Today, the same shooters that snapped the car in stills have delivered some pretty compelling moving pictures of the thing. Captured both in some less-than-inspiring around-town traffic situations and out on the Nürburgring, the video delivers our first taste of the new R8's auditory splendor. Well... a taste of it, anyway.

If you're listening for clean audio of the R8 in action, we recommend fast-forwarding to the 0:45-second mark, and the 1:35-second mark, where the Audi 4.2-liter V8 (we believe) can be heard fairly well. The rest of the audio is somewhat muddied by other ring traffic, though the car still looks fairly amazing while underway. Check out the full video below.
