The R8 was the second worse car I've ever bought,, V10 £115K in white with carbon everything,, it was a bucket of shite,, to many things wrong with it to post on here, but at 50k I don't know where that stretches to a V10.
It's really get in one and have a drive, auto gearboxes were dreadful on early cars,, the V8 is hugely under powered, but as you say it's not for speed,
Although I hated it for picking it up new, they are still a fantastic looking car. Shame the build quality didn't match the looks,
It was that bad Audi gave me a full refund and wouldn't build me a yellow replacement because of the quality issues,,
Regards Goldie
