When it was launched in 2007, the Audi R8 was criticised for its conservative style, now, almost a decade on, Audi’s styling makes more sense than ever before. Where its more extravagant German and Italian sports car rivals are looking tired and outdated, the subtle styling and classic lines of the R8 have aged gracefully- making the R8 one of the most appealing proposition for those in the market for a second hand supercar.
Featuring a 4.2L naturally aspirated V8 dispensing 309kw/430Nm, this single clutch automatic R8 will sprint to 100km/h in 4.6sec- the same time as the manual option. Compared to the likes of today’s hot hatches, such as the A45 AMG or the Audi RS3, the acceleration figures of the R8 may seem rather modest for a purpose built sports car, however, the R8 isn’t simply about outright power, more so the sensation of revving a naturally aspirated V8 all the way to 7800RPM- where you’ll find peak power.
The Brilliant Red on black colour combination and tasteful body kit make this R8 one of the most examples on the market. Now residing at the Gosford Classic Car Museum, this Audi R8 has temporarily joined Tony Denny’s esteemed private collection of rare and classic cars until the right buyer comes along.
