    The 'right' spec will usually sell quite easily, but less popular colours and limited options can take time to move on.

    Will double check all the options as I'm not 100% sure what comes as standard on the v10. Also it is a 2010 Manual spyder in blue with 35k miles. It does have the top spec alloys but not sure if they were standard or not

    Hi I am from the UK I bought mine in November a 15k miles immaculate red Spider V10 I paid 55k from a specialist dealer. Believe it or not I bought with the thought in mind it will end up appreciating! My reckoning is the gen 1 cars are the best looking and it has to be the manual. Long term I think when all cars are autos hybrid or electric a car like this with a naturally aspirated V10 and manual box will be sort after. Yes if you are thinking of selling it in the next couple of years you might lose some money but not long term if just used on weekends and looked after properly.

    So I think yours with that warranty is the right price. I have a 996 turbo and a 996 GT3 plus a fair few others and the R8 is the best to drive and enjoy especially the spider with a sports exhaust and being mapped makes a big difference! Good luck let us know what you decide to do but bear this in mind a few years ago I was after a Ferrari Scaglietti 612 in manual they were available at 55/65k for a good one as like most 4 seater V12 Ferraris they drop like stones in price. I ended up getting cold feet and now you won't get one under 120k I think most are POA and if you look around there are none for sale anyway as the investors have snapped them up knowingly. Now you can still get the auto 612 at the 55/65k price so what does that tell you? The original manual Gallardo will go the same way, you watch, but I would rather have an V10 R8....

    The options that are generally regarded as desireable include: extended leather (top of dash, door cards, etc); carbon interior, carbon engine bay (if coupe); carbon side blades (if coupe); and an aftermarket valved exhaust.

    55k with that mileage seems like a very good price. Thanks for the info, it's really helpful. I was kind of looking at the depreciation in the sense that the v10 is still being made, so as the higher priced cars fall, it will push down the gen 1s. I've not really followed the R8 market so I'm not sure what this car would have been worth last year or the year before to really gauge what it may be worth next year. I will opt for the 2 year warranty for the simple fact I'm hoping it will sell better with it having a year remaining if I sell it next year. I looked at buying a manual gallardo a few years back at £52,000. The same car is currently listed at £72,000. However they are no longer being made. Difficult obviously to call the market, some think brexit will have an effect. I'm not so sure

    These are really helpful

    I know the car has a reversing camera. The leather extras I don't think it has, or the carbon. It's definatley got a metal gear knob. It has parking sensors. It has the AMI. It's a Spyder so doesn't have the carbon engine bay. It also hasn't got the carbon vents on the boot. Not sure if these are aftermarket

    This is the exact car, you will know better than I do as to what is extra

    Yes they are still making them just as Porsches 911 but like the 911 certain models hold their value or appreciate over time. The newer R8s are all auto only and lots of people like me think the series one is the best looker. If you are thinking of selling in a year or 2 then yes you will lose some money but should not be too bad... Some Aston and Mclarens for some reason seem to be a nightmare to move on, well it was for a pal of mine. As I say long term I feel its a winner.... I think in a few years people will be saying gosh can you remember when you could buy a manual R8 V10 for 50k! Only time will tell yes we have Brexit etc but life will carry on we will get through it

    Very good point on the 911. My 1st choice was a 997 turbo but thought the R8 was better for the money. A similar age and mileage 997 Turbo is nearer the £70k Mark. I didn't fancy £50k for an 07 plate with 50k miles upwards. If I paid £52k for the R8 and sold it next year for around the £46k mark with the 12 month warranty included, I would be pretty happy with this. If I could only get £40k ish I'd be a little disappointed. I lost £2k in 14 months on the GTR, which was awesome really

    Also with it being a spyder I'm guessing selling it would be seasonal. I can't imagine there would be much interest in October etc...

    Do many from the UK advertise their cars for sale on here? It all seems to be US cars. The GTR forum is the best place for selling the Nissans. Is AutoTrader etc the best place for these?
