Video: Audi R8 Sets 392 KM/H Half Mile World Record

Written By:

This one's for the Audi R8 fans out there. A 2500 horsepower Audi R8 has set a record for the fastest half mile, recording an exit speed of little over 392km/h.

The Audi R8 in question is a 2017 model, tweaked and given the extra 2000 horsepower (almost) by Underground Racing. The record-setting R8 was driven by Mohammad from Drag965, who set the record at Wannagofast NC Half Mile Shootout.

Unlike cars that are drag-specific, the 2500 horsepower Audi R8 is civilised enough to be driven on the streets too, or on the highway to a drag location, set the record and be driven back home.

DriveSpark Thinks!

Setting a half mile record of 392km/h is an eye opener for sure since most production supercars have a top speed of less than what the R8 achieved in half a mile. Also, for a car that can be driven cross-country as well, the R8 deserves a round of applause.
