Hey Gang - Just received the following from Audi Talk and I am interpreting this as "1 of 1" - My previous R8 was 1 of 26 out of 700'ish made. But this reads to me as 1 of 1. Just want to make sure this is accurate:

"Thank you for your patience while I was out of the office. The information with your vehicle VIN shows that your vehicle is the only vehicle with Camouflage Green metallic exterior and Vermont Brown interior. The vehicle would be 1 of 485 total 2017 Audi R8 V10 Coupe quattro S tronic's."

1 of 1 with all spec I would assume. Non-carbon exterior, etc.

Ok - Thats what I was thinking. Factoring side blade color, dry carbon interior, etc. When you factor in all the customization you can request, not hard to imagine there are a lot of "1 of 1"'s out there.

Ha! Fair point and thank you! Interior is even more stunning in person IMO. The Gen2 has some very nice improvements in the comfort department (over the Gen1) but two of my favorites are the B&O headrest speakers and the air adjustable side and hip bolsters.

I think you can also get numbers on some of the individual elements. For example, you can find out how many cars had that color and then how many had that color and interior. For example, I was told that only about 1/4 of the cars in my car also had diamond stitching.

LOL - I agree, they missed the boat on a few of the "comfort factors" in the Gen1.
It is nice to get into an R8 and not pray the Bovee Bluetooth Adapter works. The navigation display is also more than 8-bits which is fun. :)

I think it's 1/1 based on the colors (exterior over interior) alone - not factoring in any options. If you factored in options, most of these cars would be very unique.

When I spoke to Audi, they had mine as 1/7 - that was based only on color. If they went down to the granularity of all options, it would likely be 1/1.

"1 of 1" is overblown due to the sheer number of combination options on these cars. When comp9 was still around, nearly every single firebird, camaro, gto etc was "1 of 1" due to manufacturing location or combination of installed options like ash trays.

Coming from previous Corvette cars you guy sound like them. It's 1 of "x" number in this color combo and feature set. 🤣

Guess what? No one cares. If this was a limited production Ferrari F40 or the like you may have some ground. It's a mass produced cheaper exotic. General public won't care while you own it and the buyer won't care when you sell it.

My R8 1st gen has inflatable side bolsters (both back swab and bottom) but there again it is probably because I have the factory option recaros?
