The sound of Audi Sport - Der Klang Der Ringe

By Johan Laubscher

Audi have produced many iconic race cars. All of the Audi cars have their own unique sounds, many of which, like the five cylinder turbo cars, have become legendary. Below are nine YouTube videos featuring Audi race car sound recordings. The soundtrack is from the “Der Klang Der Ringe” which has driver interviews and recordings from eight legendary Audi race cars. Imagery of the specific car has been included by the YouTube user who uploaded the soundtrack as videos. The sounds from these recordings which all include onboard and outside recorded sound, are brilliant, enjoy: 

Each video begins with a short interview followed by trackside and then in-car recordings and ends with a closing interview.
