Get to Know Your Audi
Audi has truly outdone itself with the R8, beating out incredible models from the likes of Aston Martin, Porsche, and even Lamborghini!
Meticulous craftsmanship easily explains why this vehicle stands apart from the crowd. Each Audi R8 is meticulously crafted, with 70 workers fitting 5,000 parts by hand. That is why a factory produces an average of just 8 to 15 cars a day. So, when you have an R8, you know that you own a true masterpiece.
Audi Sport GmbH, a subsidiary of Audi that focuses solely on high-performance vehicles, designs, develops, and manufactures the R8. Based on the Audi Le Mans quattro concept car, the R8 first appeared in 2003 at the Geneva and Frankfurt motor shows. Audi didn’t release it until 2006 after much fanfare.
Currently in its second generation, the first generation R8, the Type 42, was in production from 2006 to 2015 and based on the Lamborghini Gallardo body style.
The original R8 quattro models were the 4.2 FSI and 5.2 FSI. The 4.2 FSI, also known as the Audi R8 V8 quattro, originally had a V8 engine. The 5.2 FSI, meanwhile, came with a V10 engine and boasts a top speed of 196 mph.
The ever-popular R8 Spyders are the convertible versions of the R8 that Audi released just a few years after the original models. The 5.2 Quattro Spyder made its debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, where it garnered widespread praise for its stylish design. The Audi R8 V10 Spyder had the same 5.2-liter V10 engine as the original R8 coupe did.
In 2011, Audi outdid itself once again by releasing the R8 GT as a higher-performance model of the R8 V10. It can reach a top speed of 199 mph and accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.6 seconds. But this vehicle isn’t just fast; it handles well, too. In fact, six-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Jacky Ickx called it “the best handling road car” available then. Only 333 of these cars exist, making them especially valuable for car enthusiasts.
The last model in Audi’s first generation was the R8 GT Spyder, the convertible version of their GT. They also only made 333 of these cars. Of these, only 50 were sold in the US, making it an extremely rare and valuable vehicle.
The second generation of the R8, the Type 4S, extends from 2015 to the present. This generation shares the platform and engine of the Lamborghini Huracán, although it does not have a manual transmission. What it does have are luxury features like a built-in backup camera and navigation system. Fuel economy averages out to about 11 mpg city, 20 highway.
The first models of the second generation were the base model R8 Coupé V10 5.2 FSI and the high-performance R8 V10 Plus Coupé. Two second-generation R8 Spyders soon followed: the standard V10 engine and the V10 Plus Spyder.
Audi didn’t stop there, however, and in 2017 unveiled the rear-wheel drive Audi R8 RWS. A departure from the all-wheel drive (AWD) of past R8 models, the RWS is over 100 pounds lighter, making it an even faster option for R8 devotees with better fuel economy.
2019 was even better, as it saw the release of the R8 V10 Performance Decennium. This vehicle celebrates 10 years of the incredible 5.2-liter FSI engine. With a phantom black pearl effect on the outside with a dark interior, smooth steering wheel, and leather seats, this vehicle is the envy of car enthusiasts everywhere.

In Our Clients Words
They bought my Aston Martin, I needed an expeditious sale and the got it done, also they matched a sightly higher offer that I got from another buyer to close the deal. Paid me with a cashiers check, simple badda boom badda bing!
These guys gave me an offer comparable to what the dealership offered me for my Porsche, which was fine, but what made it great was from the moment we agreed the price it was less than two business days before we were paid and DONE. They are legit, and they move as fast as he cars they buy. I’m very happy to have this off my plate in record time. Thank you to Evan at We Buy Exotics for making it crazy fast and crazy easy…
