AUDI R8 – 4.2 V8 – MANUAL
FULL AUDI SERVICE HISTORY- LAST ONLY 1000 MILES AGO FEB 2019

Incredible £6k, I.P.E. remote controlled Titanium Sports Exhaust, which totally transforms the whole car.
Phantom Black, remains in excellent condition. No parking dents, scratches or fading. Only, very minor stone chipping to the lower front end, but overall extremely well cared for example. Professionally detailed after every use, by previous fastidious owner. Obviously garaged stored.
Virtually un-marked, the soft black leather sports seats, offer a high level of support and comfort. Door-cards, head-lining, dash, centre-console and carpets have all faired particularly well, obviously as a result of both extremely low mileage and careful ownership. Instruments remain clear, with all switches operating as fully intended. Boot space is clean, dry housing both battery and complete hazard kit, with a useful 100 litre capacity.

THE DRIVE & ENGINE
Having enjoyed a main dealer service regime from new, as to be expected, the R8 performs reliably, as proved by a recent, trouble free, return trip to Le Mans.
The now legendary all wheel drive system, instils a quiet confidence and reassurance in both poor weather conditions or while pressing on around more challenging routes. Power delivery from the direct injection, D.O.H.C. 4.2 V8is prodigious, with approx 420/430bhp on tap, enough to crack 0-62 in 4.6 secs, then onwards to 187 mph, where allowable, aided by a drag coefficient of just 0.34. The open gate, six speed manual is a complete joy to use, clutch light and aided by power steering, this is a very usable, everyday supercar, that you can actually live with and enjoy owning. Fitted with the essential Magnitech dampers.
However, what absolutely makes this car, and sets it far apart from all others, is the installation of a superb £6k, I.P.E.Titanium, switchable sports exhaust. Two remote control fobs are available which totally transform the entire driving experience, while saving approx 40kgs of weight. A normal, subtle mode, auto which operates above 3500 rpm or upon hard acceleration, and the “Full-Fat” race mode, totally awesome, I urge you to experience it while still available.
Ready to be thoroughly enjoyed.
