EXTERIOR
Smooth, sleek and such a departure from the typical Audi range of the time, the first generation Audi R8 looks sensational and a much purer design than its replacement. This example is finished in Phantom Black with metallic grey side blades and 19″ gloss black wheels. A minimal but aggressive combination that suits the R8 aesthetic perfectly.

The paintwork of the car is in exceptional condition for its mileage with barely a mark to report, it is still its factory finish having never been subjected to further work from new. The recognisable side blades are also free of any marks as are the smooth flanks of the car. The metal fuel filler is beautifully crafted and creates a subtle contrast to the otherwise stealthy dark colours throughout the rest of the exterior.

INTERIOR
The interior feel follows that typical Audi design DNA. Comfortable, low slung and wrought from solid materials, the build quality is clear with everything working as it should and no excessive wear to report anywhere. The black nappa leather which covers the dash, doors and seats remains soft and damage free whilst the gated stainless steel manual gear lever creates some balance amongst the dark shades to become the focal point of the interior and once on the move and incredibly satisfying change and bolt like action.

Audi had ‘ease of use’ in mind when designing the R8 so it has excellent sight-lines front and rear. Along side this it also comes equipped with Bluetooth, sat nav, heated seats and parking sensors. This combination means the R8 is comfortable to manoeuvre and drive on a day to day basis, yet capable as a legitimate sports car and driving machine.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
It was amazing that Audi even considered a mid-engined supercar at the time, but even more so that the conceptual design, with the engine on full display under a glass cover, made it to production. Indeed this must be one of the best dressed engine bays in the segment – exposed for all to see, it presents beautifully.

On test drive, the engine pulls cleanly and with great potency, the driver able to precisely meter out exactly the power he wants with accuracy. A naturally aspirated V8 engine and a manual gearbox read as nirvana for true driving enthusiasts and Audi’s open gated manual even more so.

The car has been maintained meticulously, with a full Audi service history consisting of 8 stamps, the most recent of which less than 2,000 miles ago.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The handsome twin-bladed five spoke alloys are a wholesome 19 inch in diameter, finished in gloss black they compliment the stealthy aesthetic of this R8.

The tyres are also in excellent condition, with new rear tyres fitted in May 2019. The disc brakes work as expected, strong and confident, hauling the car up with ease.
