German automaker Audi continues to make a big splash at the Frankfurt Motor Show, with some of the more adrenaline-focused drivers out there surely impressed by the brand new Audi R8 V10 RWS, the first fully rear-wheel drive car created by the company.

Most regular drivers assume that the point of a car is to move forwards and to your destination, but if you're an adrenaline junkie, you'll likely appreciate the incomparable thrill of carrying out controlled drifts. This rear-wheel drive car allows for drifting to be as safe as possible, thanks to a special Dynamic Mode that reduces the vehicle's stability control just enough to allow for slick drifting.

However, the vehicle's system is designed to come to the fore if it senses danger, proving that sport and adventure-focused vehicles can strike a balance between adrenaline and safety.
