    2019/20 drive video review(UK)

    UK-based Henry Catchpole, @Carfection seems to be a sensible sort. Even if the content is already widely disseminated, his fair-minded appraisal wastes no words and pulls no punches.

    "Enjoy it while it lasts". Indeed.

    At first, I kept seeing varying reports that this is the last R8. Others are now saying if their is one, it will be all electric. But, most of those articles are from late last year with no real solid updates other than speculation.

    Why do they want to stop R8 production? That's sad.

    Steve9 - true statement. They could push a lot more wind power up north west side there. I lived in Enniskillen for nearly a year and I could count on my two hands how many calm days occurred while I was working there.
    Catchpole is using the R8 for what it was intended. Really like those guys who do tests like that instead of all that drifting stuff. Definitely on the edge of my seat regarding where R8 will go from here. My local dealer is only getting one facelift in June.
