The second-generation Audi R8 was redesigned from the ground up as it aimed to build on the original R8’s success, a more powerful, leaner car with fabulous soundtrack to accompany. This was no mean feat as its predecessor was heralded by many experts as one of the finest sports cars ever made. The R8 is now only available with the naturally aspirated V10 engine derived from the Lamborghini Huracan, whilst there is no manual gearbox anymore with Audi confident that the car is best suited to its super slick shifting S-Tronic transmission. With more muscular styling, a lighter chassis and a much more refined interior the R8 is now a bona-fide supercar with real character. 60 mph comes up in a shade over 3 seconds, and with the roof down, under hard acceleration, the soundtrack is fabulous.
The Audi R8 V10 Plus Spyder takes everything we love about the coupe but brings you closer to the sound of that glorious V10. With a fully electric retractable soft top roof the Spyder quickly transforms itself in around 20 seconds revealing a large vent adorned rear deck, hiding the monstrous engine beneath. This particular car is swathed in carbon fibre which offsets the beautiful Daytona Grey paintwork, and there is a full PPF wrap on the car which will the paint looking fabulous. The Spyder also benefits from a retractable glass rear window, which when the hood is down acts as a brilliant wind deflector keeping buffeting in the cabin to a minimum allowing the Bang and Olufsen sound system to add to the visceral experience.
The 602bhp, 200+ mph V10 Plus is the top-of-the-range model and on arrival it was the fastest Audi production car in the company’s history. Not only is the performance simply astounding the V10 Plus comes equipped with a huge selection of features as standard including lots of carbon fibre features, switchable performance modes, carbon ceramic brakes and a whole host of other upgrades. With Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive system this is very much a supercar you can use all year round, it’s consistently brilliant to drive but packed with convenience and modern technology. In an age of turbocharging the Audi R8 V10 Plus stands tall with what could be one of the last great naturally aspirated engines, it really is a car we can’t recommend highly enough.
The List of optional extras on this car is as follows: 20’’ 10 spoke Y Alloys, Audi Magnetic Ride suspension, Audi Quilted Sports seats in Fine Nappa Leather, contrast stitch, with Lumbar memory, Full Leather Package, Bang & Olufsen Sound System, Smart Phone interface, Audi Phone box, Cruise Control, Reversing Camera, Dynamic Steering, Sports Exhaust, iIluminated Door Sills, Daytona Grey Pearl paint, and full PPF wrap.
This is a Special car, dripping in Carbon Fibre, with just 1200 miles from new, totally mint, the best possible colour combination of Grey paint and Black leather, a bargain supercar, that really is an everyday all-weather vehicle. This must be one of the best cars out there, top spec. low mileage, fabulous condition, and with benefit of PPf costing £8.000. One not to be missed!
