“This car is wickedly quick, and if you don't watch the speedometer, you will be driving with one foot in jail most of the time.” –Car and Driver Audi R8 V10 Review, February 2009
“Building the R8 has been one of the best decisions Audi has ever made,” was Car and Driver's high praise for a model the magazine hailed, noting “… (its) avant-garde styling, light weight from an all-aluminum body and structure, and nearly perfect handling with a standard all-wheel-drive system all contribute to the car's special nature.” Prospective buyers who haven't already done so need to watch the R8 manufacturing video on YouTube to fully appreciate how revolutionary and unique this sports car really is.
The beautiful Brilliant Red over black enhanced leather 2011 Audi R8 V10 offered here represents the marque extremely well. Why go with a “subtle color” when there is nothing otherwise subtle about an R8 V10? Its condition is first-rate with all servicing performed by Audi dealers, and accumulated mileage of just 5,358 miles since its European delivery to its first and only owner. That's roughly 600 miles per year indicating this world-class supercar has been treated with world-class care.
Given the thrills the car offers, driving it sparingly must have taken some serious willpower. Car and Driver: “The V-10 is more powerful and serves up more torque (391 lb-ft versus 317 lb-ft for the V-8), and it also revs to an 8700-rpm redline versus the V-8's 8400 rpm. Audi claims that 0 to 62 mph comes up in 3.9 seconds versus the factory's conservative 4.5-second figure for the V-8. Top speed climbs… to 196 mph.” One surprising aspect for a performance car of this pedigree is the comfort it offers occupants. A number of reviewers even suggested the R8 could be a daily-driver candidate. “…the R8 V-10 won't exhaust you on long trips. Driver and passenger travel in great comfort, and there is ample storage space in the front trunk and behind the seats. The standard driver-adjustable magnetic shocks let you choose a sporty or more comfortable setup. The standard seats are wide and comfortable.”
Most prospective owners will be well aware of the design details and the many features of the R8. To all of that (much of which is listed on the right-hand side of the car's original window sticker in the photo gallery), this R8 offers optional carbon fiber interior and engine trim, titanium-finish 19-inch alloy wheels, and carbon-fiber “side blades,” in addition to the optional R-Tronic 6-speed transmission and enhanced leather interior mentioned above.
While the more than 180 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this R8 in detail, we encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance, or get in touch by phone or email if you have any questions.
Included with the car are its original window sticker, owner's literature, R8-branded car cover, luggage compartment net, factory first-aid kit, and an Audi-branded tote bag. The car still wears its European tourist-delivery license plate showing "IN" for Ingolstadt, the site of Audi's world headquarters
As much as we marvel at the restrained mileage-build on this R8 (and appreciate the pristine condition of the car that resulted), we can't help but envy its original owner for the experience of putting the first miles on the car on twisty European roads and the autobahn. That said, this R8 will turn heads and garner admiring smiles no matter what sort of roads it travels with its next proud owner.
