Audi R8

Audi R8

The Audi R8 is a sports car from Audi which has taken the world by storm. It achieved a great deal as a race car but it’s name is also used  for a road car which is also produced by Audi. The R8 race car won the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in 2000,2001,2002,2004 and 2005. This is obviously a pretty impressive record! The road car has also been well recieved and has been praised for its handling picking up plenty of awards since its release in 2006.

So to think that you can own one of these amazing examples of motorsport engineering on the road for as… little… as £65,000 is pretty good. OK so it’s not pocket change but you are getting a brilliant car. There’s quite a few sites to check out when looking for a used car, Car Dealer Locator for example has about 20 R8′s listed at the moment, here’s the link to their used audi R8 page; Used Audi R8. Of course, this isn’t the only place to get your hands on a used R8, there’s quite a few sites out there, try using Google or Bing to find some for yourself. Don’t forget though, once you’ve got the car, keeping it on the road won’t be cheap. We found Jim Ellis Audi Parts to have a pretty comprehensive list of parts for the R8, none of them cheap!

So what then, does the future hold for the Audi R8?

Audi R8 TDI Le Mans Concept

The Audi R8 TDI Le Mans Concept is the first ever car to possess a ‘12-cylinder diesel engine in a high-performance road-going sports car’.  This R8 concept generates 500ps and 1,000 Nm of torque meaning any die hard Audi R8 fans will not be disappointed with this concept. It looks as vicious as ever, like it is capable of chewing up any road you put it on.
