Up for sale is the first gated manual R8 GT! This 2012 Audi Exclusive Daytona Gray R8 GT is the spec to own! #136 of 333 worldwide, and only 90 made for the North American market, this car is the absolute premier mark for a manual v10 experience. With only 27k miles on the clock, this car presents absolutely stunningly, and performs flawlessly!

Daytona Gray was not offered as a standard paint option for the GT, so it’s spec’d with this $2500 Audi Exclusive paint option (one of only 3 known in the market), along with Enhanced Leather, Carbon Ceramic brakes, and loads of carbon fiber accents everywhere for an original MSRP of over $235k! The car also has PPF over strategic portions including the front bumper/grille, sides and rear bumper.

The R8 is widely known for its reliability, and this one is no exception. Everything on this car functions as it should. AC blows cold (it was a Florida car, so I’d expect no ac issues), and the GT is factory-equipped with a Bilstein/Eibach adjustable coilover, so no mag ride suspension to fail. The interior has been enhanced with even more leather, including a leather/stitched center console and radio bezel, and an upgraded alcantara steering wheel. Everything else is completely stock.

This GT is equipped with carbon ceramic brakes, which are in outstanding condition. As a general rule, when used strictly for street driving, the brakes should last the life of the car. The tires are Pirelli PZ4 in great condition and are wrapped around factory Lamborghini Huracan Giano wheels, produced by Speedline. I can negotiate to swap them out for the factory titanium-colored 5-spoke split 19” wheels if the buyer would prefer. All maintenance is current, so the car is ready for the road!

The manual conversion was executed with great detail, and the car drives like it came that way from the factory. The upside to this conversion method is that the car can readily be converted back to rtronic, should a future owner ever decide to do so.

The gated manual v10 R8 is among the most engaging cars to drive, with the exhaust note and the metallic clinking of the gated shifter creating an audible symphony that becomes hard to live without. With the GT introduced as the pinnacle of first generation R8 performance, the combination provides the driver with a thrilling driving experience like no other.

This car is located in Birmingham, AL. Priced at $170k, it’s a hard bargain to beat with anything else in its price range.
