Sepang Blue, factory code LY5Q, makes a dramatic statement and creates a powerful road presence. Arguably the very best choice for any R8, however, particularly suited to the Spyder.
Bodywork condition can only be described as excellent throughout. Barely even a stone-chip or blemish to be found across the entire car. The black convertible roof, again remains in fine order. Splitters and diffusers completely intact and damage free.
Beautiful soft black Nappa leather with exposed silver stitching, covers the majority or the interior, subtly highlighted by a tasteful, restrained use of Carbon-Fibre, (unlike some other top-end manufacturers), to doors, centre console and instrument binnacle. Totally un-marked in all areas, and highlighted by the open gate aluminium, manual 6 speed gear selector, the focus of a true drivers car. All instruments are clear, switches and controls operating effectively as factory intended.
WHEELS & TYRES
Alloys are 19”inch five double spoke, with correct logo centre caps. All wheels are in virtually as new condition, even very minor imperfections hard to detect (See images to confirm). Tyres are 305/30/ZR 19 rear, 235/35/ZR19 front. All matching Pirelli P Zeros.
Tread depth is excellent, 6.14mm – 7.40mm overall. We have specific readings if required. Even wear across each tyre.

THE DRIVE & ENGINE
Producing 517bhp, from the Lamborghini Gallardo derived 5.2 V10 FSI, excitement is guaranteed and comes as standard. From the first turn of the key you know you are sat in something rather special.
The clutch is light and easily depressed; engage the slotted, bolt-like action of the gear selector, as cool to view as it is to the touch, and let the drama commence. 0-60 dispatched in just 3.9 secs, onward to a remarkable 196 mph, where allowed.
Surprisingly easy to manage effectively in all departments. Steering, shifting and braking, aided by 15”inch front and 14”inch rear discs, are all an effortless pleasure, especially for a vehicle in this sector. Even vision is respectable and far better than some Supercar competitors from Europe.
With the roof up, there is little or no wind noise, down, and cleverly stowed, the only noise is the glorious howl of that V10, intoxicating.
So in conclusion, a capable, flexible, dramatic every-day Supercar, now representing extraordinary value, at virtually half the original price tag. Ready to enhance the summer of any lucky enough to take the keys.
