2008 Audi R8

Sold

Fabulous black on black V8 manual

Sensible miles, solid history, desirable spec and heavy options list make this R8 an attractive proposition.

Audi's first foray into the sportscar market did not disappoint. Combining the legacy of World Rally Championship with new technology acquired from Lamborghini, the R8 was always destined to be a big hit.  A winning recipe of naturally aspirated 4.2 litre V8 (already successfully deployed in the RS4), a beautiful open gated manual gearbox, Audis renowned Quattro system plus stunning good looks made it an instant classic.

Exterior

Presenting in a stealthy pearlescent Black metallic paint, contrasted smartly with shadow chrome blades, the car looks fantastic. The condition of the paintwork is great, with no obvious blemishes or stone chips and free from significant swirling and retains its deep shine.

The vehicle is offered with after-market wheels, 19” lightweight OZ racing wheels which suit the car perfectly. They have been refurbished in January 2022 to a Shadow Chrome finish, complimenting the blades nicely.

Interior

From its flat-bottomed racing inspired steering wheel to the shiny metal gearstick this car is a drivers delight. Heavily optioned from new, the vehicle boasts a great specification adding to the comfort of the cockpit. The drivers seat is subject to very minor creasing but no cracks in the leather, all touch points appear in ‘as-new’ condition, and all buttons and switches operating as expected of a car with this extensive a maintenance record. The 'click-clack' open gated gearstick is rare in a modern car, and rarer still from a car of recent German origin.

Mechanicals

With a full (mostly dealer) service history from new, the car is in fantastic mechanical order. The last service was undertaken less than 2,000 miles ago by Audi Stratford main dealer, and the all-important 60,000 mile works have been carried out including a belt change. This car is in perfect order, and ready to be enjoyed by its next custodian.
