Is an Audi R8 worth the money?

Asked by jakejw1 (2points) May 13th, 2009

A year ago, these were selling for lots above list. Now you can get one. Anybody have one that can recommend buying or not buying?

I don’t have one, but I’d buy one if I could, purely based on aesthetics.

Audi’s are the best. I have an Audi!

I don’t know much about the R8 specifically (I have an A6), but I know that reviewers like it.

@Dansedescygnes Dude, you’re 17 and you have an A6? You really are loaded.

Yeah, pretty much…lol

And what I really want now is an A8. My dad has one…so awesome…I love when I get to drive it.


Because it’s ridiculous looking…lol

@Dansedescygnes it holds the top gear track record :D. I am sure you have racetracks in California, Mr. R.

Of course we do. And my parents are obsessed with car racing, mostly Formula 1 racing.

haha did SEE transporter 3??? He drive it into a lake, replaced the spark plugs, it started right up and 5 minutes later he drove it on to a moving train!! I would say it’s worth it, but that’s just me.

Mid engine 415 HP German made sexy sports car? Is there are down side? Ok it’s a joke against the 16 cylinder Bugatti Veyron but that’s in another stratosphere.

I was looking at an R8 when I was shopping for cars. The only thing that got me was the price. I love Audis (used to have an RS6), but for the money, I would’ve gotten a Nissan GTR. If only there weren’t so many problems with it.

If you want a crazy car that feels like your average racing animal, try a 911 gt2. The R8 is much calmer and doesn’t sound like it should have those “hey-lookit-me” trinkets all over itself. However, either way, if you want to take some friends for some breakneck action at the same time, get a 4-door Bimmer 3-series. Much better overall.
