Who Needs A Winter Beater When You Can Have An Audi R8?

There is a common misconception among car fans that all supercars are useless during winter, but every once in a while, a video like this one comes out to set things straight.

The protagonist here is a first generation Audi R8 and its Quattro all-wheel drive system that was surely put to the test.

We cannot be sure whether this is a “show-off” or an actual “hill-climb”, considering that there are some cones on the road and no other vehicles are coming from the opposite way.

Without further spoilers, we will let check it out for yourself and remind you that underneath that appealing body rests a 5.2-liter V10 engine, shared with the Lamborghini Gallardo, that continues to live on, in an upgraded form, in the newer Huracan and the second generation of the R8.
