I'm considering getting an r8 and have been going back and forth between a pre-owned R8 GT (under 1,000 miles) or a new 2014 V10. While there is a lot of helpful feedback and info on the site regarding the v8 and v10's, i can't find much on the GT (the limited nature of it likely the problem). I am just curious of any thoughts or things to consider on the car. It would be far from a daily driver (live in NYC and have an e63 amg for more day to day activities) but i would want to be able to drive it on occasion out of the city or to DC (visit family friends). Based on what i have read, the V10 would have no issue. Is the GT reliable and comfortable enough? or is it really a track car? Hoping to do a test drive next weekend but hard to answer these questions from a 5 minute drive.
On price, it seems i might be able to get the GT down to $170k level (should i try lower?) but have yet to seriously negotiate.
Any insight would be much appreciated. Thanks
