This R8 is equipped with a 430 HP 4.2L V8 FSI engine that drives all four wheels through a 6-speed manual gearbox.  Utilizing Audi’s Quattro AWD system, this R8 is capable of accelerating from 0-60 MPH in as little as 4.5 seconds.  Other technical features include anti-lock disc brakes with 8-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Audi magnetic ride adaptive damping system, double-wishbone front and rear suspension, and an ASF aluminum frame.  All available maintenance history is provided on CARFAX including a 2019 service from Hoffman Audi at 17,028 miles.  The seller reports that an oil service has also been carried out recently in preparation for sale.

    What kind of tires??

  • wltoyboy (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 3 daysago

    @CoventryMotorcar Hello,
    Please Install Michelin PS4 tires, as that way the buyer does not need to switch them out immediately.

  • CoventryMotorcar (seller) 3 weeks, 3 daysago

    @CUP103 The car has zero leaks in the paint is in excellent condition free from scratches and no dings. Besides the new tires we will also include a full detail before it gets shipped out or picked up.

    @nnnick We just had added the photos you requested to the listing (scroll all the way down). We just checked with Audi and they have no service history of carbon cleanings or suspension work. The car does drive very well and does not feel down on power or corked up. The shocks look good too with the exception of some water (rain/snow today) and road grime.

    Nice looking example! Do you know if it has had a carbon clean documented? Any leaks from the DRC (mag-ride) suspension? Would it be possible to get some under-carriage shots?
