The first-generation Audi R8 remains one very capable supercar and a well-kept, low-mileage example is currently up for grabs through Bring A Trailer.
This R8 is a 2012 V10 Spyder with 25k miles on the odo and is fitted with the R Tronic six-speed manual automated manual transmission that sends power to all four wheels. The 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 is very similar to the engine of the Lamborghini Gallardo and, in 2012 spec, is good for 525 hp and 391 lb-ft (530 Nm) of torque.
The listing notes that the original engine was replaced in May 2015 but fails to reveal why. Included in the sale are the original owner’s manuals, a clean Carfax report, and a clean New Hampshire title in the seller’s name.
Adorning the exterior of the German mid-engined supercar is a shade known as Ice Silver Metallic. The car also features carbon fiber mirror caps and has smoked lenses on the headlights and taillights. Helping it stand out even further are aftermarket Black di Forza 20-inch wheels from Savini wrapped in 235/30 front and 305/25 rear Pirelli P Zero tires. Braking is handled by eight-piston calipers at the front and four-piston calipers at the rear.
Black leather covers most parts of the interior, including the seats, door panels, and dashboard. Among the key features are power-adjustable heated seats, Audi Navigation Plus infotainment, a reversing camera, and various carbon fiber accents.
