(Second video added) Yesterday, we brought you the world premier of the 2008 Audi R8 sports car. Now, two videos are available of the stunning coupe. Equipped with a 420 horsepower V8 engine riding on a Lamborghini Gallardo platform, the R8 is by far Audi's most performance-oriented model to date. The first video includes some track driving shots and footage from the unveiling at the Paris Motor Show yesterday evening. The car's unique headlight system can be seen in action, and viewers get a better idea of how the car might actually look in person. We also get a glimpse of the R8's automated manual in action, which can be operated via a joystick or using paddle shifters. The second video provides some great audio of the car's engine, more track footage, and studio shots. Videos after the jump...
