Audi R8 drifting - behind the scenes [video]

Pen and paper are overrated

Audi has released a new promotional video that highlights the creation of their R8 Drifting clip.

Made to celebrate the 500,000th fan on their German Facebook page, the video features Dindo Capello writing "500000" with an R8 V10. While it no easy challenge, Capello said the most difficult part was making the "5."

According to Capello, "In the past, it would have been impossible to something like that without preparing the car for the event but now, with a Audi road car, you can do it."

What is up with donuts and publicity lately, from all the manufacturers? It is such a douchey/attention whore and ricer thing, has nothing to promote or make evident of the performance. Audi going up a ski slope was cool. A Chevy doing a barrel roll was cool. The PR guys need to come up with something better to do.
