Rare, well regarded and very capable Audi supercar
When your engineering team has pulled off the supercar tour de force that was the original Lamborghini Gallardo, it clearly made sense to ask them to perform the same miracle for their primary employer.
The result was Audi’s astonishing R8. Channelling the Quattro-infused running gear from the Lambo with more sober, sensible-suited Audi aesthetics created arguably one of the most exciting car in the firm’s history. This was a proper supercar but with dependable, reliable Audi build standards.
The Spyder evolved the line up in 2010 and the 425bhp 4.2litre V8 Quattro arrived one year later with 14bhp more power than the equivalent coupe. There was nothing ‘entry level’ about the new car’s remarkable turn of speed, delivering 6-0mph in 4.3secs. These were figures comparable 911s would struggle to match.
This low mileage Spyder V8 comes with full service history and a long MOT. Nicely specified and well kept, it is a great opportunity to discover these highly rated supercars.
