I always thought that there was going to be 450 R8's produced for the UK market in the first year, and then 600 for the the year after. But I was reliably informed today that the UK allocation is actually 450 up to 2010 and 600 upto 2015!!! so there will only ever be 600 total in the country till 2015 wow! thats a rare car....

This info is of course for the R8 V8.
Figures will be different for the V10 and spider.

But wow this shocked me as i thought there were going to be more!

Dear Rob,

I think the info you have is incomplete.

UK production is 450 for 2007, then 600 PER YEAR for year 2008 and onwards.

Looking at a copy of Audi's confidential internal dealer document, which happened to fall into my hands, the most important markets are identified as UK, USA & Germany.

Total worldwide production is a maximum of 22 per day = around 5,000 per year.

I was in a meeting today with a guy from Audi UK and he showed me a slide of product numbers for all models and it was upto 2010 450 units and upto 2015 600 units.

I thought the same as you.

Which is true then?
