Introducing a supercar can be an exhilarating yet trying time for any company. Perfecting it, requires a level of commitment rivaled by professional athletes. Audi introduced its “optimized” 2013 R8 at the Moscow Motor Show this past weekend.

Celebrating the second generation of the R8, they released a video highlighting what it takes to bring an R8 to life. From the construction of its aluminum chassis to rigorous quality control (better known as blasts on the Autobahn), the R8 is spared no expense to ensure the best product is delivered to its customers.

Crank the volume up because the new R8 seems to boast a rowdier exhaust system, not to mention a new dual-clutch transmission.
