This is an opportunity to purchase probably the highest specced Audi R8 4.2 FSI V8 Quattro currently for sale, in terms of factory fitted optional extras because it is 1 of 100 UK-only Limited Edition (LE) units designed to honour the tenth victory for Audi in the Le Mans 24 Hour Race. The LE was £7,000 more than the standard R8 V8 coupe, but came stacked with options that would normally cost you many thousands more! 


The owner spared no expense to make this vehicle the perfect example. This particularly car was also specified with a £3,500 Carbon Fibre Package, which splashes Carbon Fibre on the door mirrors, side blades, sill trims and around the illuminated engine bay. It comes with a six-speed manual gearbox which is the best gearbox to have if you’re looking to buy this car as an investment.


There are no badges or plaques to denote this LE model, the biggest outward clue is a set of red brake calipers and 19” Titanium finished GT alloys. In addition you get an Audi Exclusive paint finish that’s unique to the model, the LE also gets several of the most popular R8 options thrown at it. Inside you’ll find illuminated Carbon Fibre door sills and a fancy interior light package, DVD satellite navigation, Bluetooth and a Bang & Olufsen sound system controlled via the Audi Musical Interface (AMI). You’d usually have to pay extra for all of that! Also standard is Audi Magnetic Ride. This was usually a £1,380 option and provides a supple ride yet incisive control when the roads get twisty.


The car has always been looked after with the utmost care and attention. Registered on the 24th May 2012, it is sold with the benefit of a full Audi main dealer service history, recent service, an MOT until the 8th February 2019, all manuals, the R8 embossed wallet and two keys. The car also comes with a vehicle tracking device with an additional layer of security in the form of Automatic Driver Recognition (ADR) cards. 


The Full Audi service history is as follows:


• 23/05/2013 at 514 miles
• 12/03/2015 at 6,486 miles
• 10/05/2016 at 7,724 miles
• 09/02/2018 at 8,891 miles


Professionally detailed inside and out. This is maintained by a weekly valet plan (the car has never been through a car wash and has never been smoked in)! 


Fitted with 19" 5 twin-spoke “Y”design Titanium look alloy wheels and premium Pirelli P Zero 305/30 ZR20 (103 Y) rear tyres, the fronts are 245/30/ZR 20 (90 Y) which all have plenty of tread left providing strong and consistent grip at both ends. 


The Audi Exclusive paint finish this car is finished in is Titan Metallic Grey and has an unmarked upholstery in black Fine Nappa leather with contrasting red accents and stitching. The interior is complimented by Carbon Sigma inlays and an Alcantara headlining.

The R8 V8 LE accelerates from 0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds. This is because it has a 436 bhp 4.2 V8 FSI engine.


The mechanical condition of this car is fantastic as you'd expect, the drive is tight and solid and the handling and braking are absolutely impeccable.


The bodywork and cabin are also in superb condition.


The R8 V8 is an unbelievable Supercar, sublimely balanced, relentlessly quick and in our opinion by far the most accomplished Supercar to live with everyday. The R8’s ability to carry its speed through bends remains deeply impressive - there’s vast grip and plenty of surefooted traction thanks to the Quattro four-wheel drive. The engine’s spread of torque makes this R8 quick in any gear, while the six-speed manual, with its smart open gate, is a precise, enjoyable shifter. We’d certainly choose it over the R-tronic gearbox.


HPI report can be emailed upon request and finance can be arranged if needed.


A unique example with an absolutely superb exterior and interior.


We don’t think you’ll find another R8 that turns heads quite like this one does.


Viewing is welcomed and highly recommended if you’re in the market for one of these fantastic cars.


Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions.
