We are pleased to present this 2014 Audi R8 4.2 Quattro Coupe finished in Estoril Blue Crystal Effect over a Titanium Grey leather and Alcantara interior. A major milestone for Audi, the R8 was first offered in 2006 as a high-performance sports car utilizing a mid-engine platform and lightweight carbon/aluminum construction. Reported to be one of only 129 facelifted 6-speed examples imported to the U.S. between 2014-2015, this R8 was ordered with the Convenience Package, high polished 19” wheels, Audi Navigation Plus, and Silver side blades. With just over 7k miles showing on the odometer, this V8-powered R8 Coupe is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New York.
This R8 is finished in Estoril Blue Crystal Effect with optional Silver contrasting side blades. Some distinctive features of the R8 include lightweight aluminum and carbon fiber body panels, full LED headlamps, an automatic rear spoiler, and glass rear engine cover. Additional images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. This example rides on factory 19” 5-arm double-spoke wheels in a high polished finish, which remain dressed in their original Pirelli P Zero tires.
Inside, you will find a Titanium Grey and black leather interior featuring a gated manual shifter nestled between the two Alcantara-trimmed sport seats. This R8 is equipped with the Audi Navigation Plus with MMI logic, Audi music interface with iPod cable, and the Convenience Package which adds the Audi Parking System Plus, a rearview camera, additional storage compartments, and auto-dimming, power folding mirrors. The cabin is said to remain very well preserved, and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.
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), double-wishbone front and rear suspension, and an ASF aluminum spaceframe. The CARAFAX report highlights services dating as far back as 2013, and seller notes that the last major service was performed within the last two years at approximately 5,700 miles.
This sale will incude a set of keys, owner's manuals, some service records, the original window sticker, and a clean title. With its low mileage and premium factory options, this rare 6-speed R8 is a true modern classic that is sure to satisfy any discerning driver or collector.
