Video: Audi R8 vs. Red Bull Air Race Plane (on an aircraft carrier)

. Tuesday, December 22, 2009

I've seen some pretty fantastic car races in my day, that said, racing a car against an airplane is really nothing new. However, to keep things original, Audi decided not only race an R8 against an airplane, but host the shootout on the flight deck of the legendary USS Midway aircraft carrier. Take that Top Gear!

Seeing as Audi is a sponsor of the Red Bull Air Race, it's only fitting to have the R8 drag race a Zivko Edge 540 Red Bull Race Plane. In case you may be thinking the race would be far from fair, it's actually quite close! Audi TV never ceases to amaze.
