Ask the question "What makes a supercar incredibly desirable?", and you will get myriad answers. Some might fall head over heels in love with the looks, some might be overawed by the figures on paper, while a few would want more of the car's exhaust note. If you happen to be one of the few, rejoice, because we've found something you're likely to enjoy very much.

It is this: footage of the Audi R8 V10 Plus. Yes, there's nothing new about the car really, it's been around for a bit, we even drove the Spyder in Italy a couple of months back. This however, is a video of the R8's mighty V10 doing what it does best - shrieking, howling and bellowing, running into the limiter and then spewing blue-hued flames on the overrun.

Click Play, turn the volume up to 11 and let the V10 destroy your eardrums.
