Saw it on my way to work this morning. . . "I said, 'god damn!'" It was marvelous. (I just noticed the fancy restaurant we happened to driving in front of. :lol: I have to drive through "little mexico" to get to work. :eek:)

First time seeing a pic of one actually being owned. I have never seen or herd of someone buying one. I wonder what the performance is like

STIG, they have had showcar versions of the R8 for at least 2 years now. This is a production model.


Really, I'm not sold on it. I'm not saying it's an ugly piece of shit, I would just rather own a different car for the money. ZR1 (or even the Z06, which outperforms the R8 for $40,000 less MSRP), 911 turbo, GTR...hell, I think I'd rather own a Viper than the R8. AM Vantage and Maserati's new Gran Turismo are within a stone's throw of the R8s price as well, both of which I'd rather rock. I doubt many will agree with me, and maybe things will change when I see one outside of a car show, but I'm really not that blown away by the R8.

BTW, R8s are going for a good $50-$70K over MSRP right now.

oh trust me, I'd rather have a ZR1 as well. ;) I just think it's a good looking car and it was neat to see one on the road.

Sure you have, right here. It's a good thing Mav ignores what we all try and follow. :agreed:

And within that thread there is this post, someone owning one.

ohh so I guess I have. I wonder how this compares to Audi's other performance cars(RS series and S series) Will it break as often as mine?
