Good afternoon,

I am in the market for an Audi R8.

The initial search is for a V8 however I may be able to stretch to the lower end of the V10 market.

Musts:

- Manual
- FSH (at Audi/Specialist)
- Sub 50k miles
- Clean, genuine, cared for example
- Carbon blades

Desirable:

- Red, blue, grey or some other exclusive paint colour
- Carbon trimmings, i.e. engine bay/interior
- Aftermarket exhaust
- Bucket seats
- B&O

All cars considered so please get in touch.

Thanks

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Presumably you are monitoring the favourite places such as Autotrader, Pistonheads and Top Marques. You could also send Ricky at RE Performance an email [email protected] as he is regarded as the leading R8 indy in the UK and may know of something.

Good luck with your search.

Cheers Trev - yes I've been watching AT, PH etc. closely for a few months but I'm now in a position to buy. Very lucky that I'm in no rush so happy to bide my time and not settle for anything I don't 100% want.

I notice you are local to me and I think I've seen you crop up on the R8 Owners Club Facebook page. I may shoot you a message in the near future if that's okay?

Hope to speak soon. Cheers, Ollie.

Hi Pal,


Just seen this come up.

I just found a great car on Auto Trader:

Might meet your criteria.
Regards.

Hi - thank you very much for sharing this link.

I went to view a V10 on the weekend and I've predominantly been browsing them since. I would be in the lower end of the market (early car), and would be nice to find a private sale from an enthusiast.

Will keep my eyes peeled.

What’s your max budget? (If you don’t mind me asking)

I can keep an eye out!

Thank you - I feel around £45K would be a fair price for a private sale early-V10, given that there are a few leggy ones (i.e. 50k+ miles) at dealers for early £40's on Autotrader.

There was a nice black one on AT last week, 2010, 33K mls, FASH, black w/ carbon blades. Also had Recaro super sports seats, listed at £46,500 privately. Unfortunately it seems to have disappeared!

Happy to compromise on spec given the budget but it must have carbon blades and black interior. Anything else is a bonus!

Appreciate your help.

Okay cool. You should be able to get a pretty good early v10 if that’s your budget.

There was actually another forum member looking at the one you’ve described! Wonder if he’s snapped it up or the ad’s expired lol!

Check this thread : Does this look right?

I know one of our forum members Colin has his spyder for sale. He’s been an active member for a while so you know his car will be well looked after. Already had some desired changes done to it too!

He’s got it listed at £47k but if you don’t mind a Spyder, you could potentially negotiate.

Yes, that was the car. Looks like it may have been purchased already.

Unfortunately I'm discounting Spyders at the moment as I prefer the coupe shape. The Spyder arguably looks better with the roof down but I'm hoping to get use out of this car all year round and we don't get much dry weather in Wales!

Thanks for your help, hopefully something will come up that fits the bill. No rush!
