Sports car commercials are usually very entertaining. This latest Audi R8 GT Spyder commercial is different though.  Instead of hearing the high performance engine, we hear this outdated heavy metal soundtrack and the video is also somewhat repetitive. If you don’t agree, check out the new BMW 1M commercial for a tutorial on how to shoot a great ad.

The Spyder itself looks very impressive. Production is limited to only 333 units and this car is capable of 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 317 km/h. The Spyder will be powered by a V12 5.2-liter FSI engine producing 560-hp. The transmission will be an automatic R-Tronic 6-speed. The car will cost a cool € 207 800 or $295 782.52 in USD.
