Modern Classic? 2011 Audi R8 V10 Spyder

When judging future collectables, it’s sometimes hard to predict what will be a classic and what won’t. But, it’s a safe bet that halo cars in general will remain the most valuable. Audi re-introduced and re-imagined itself to the world with the introduction of its first halo car, the Quattro. Almost 30 years later, Audi once again re-imagined itself, thanks to acquisitions such as Lamborghini. Whereas the original moved turbocharging and all-wheel drive to the masses, the R8 instead took supercars to a new tier. A celebration of their many wins at Le Mans by the race car of the same designation, the R8 was initially powered by the spectacular 4.2 FSi V8 from the RS4. Later Audi developed its own version of the 5.2 V10 whose sound channeled the original Quattro, and the final development was the introduction of the Spyder model. With slightly revised bodywork – including the removal of the polarizing “blade” the coupe has – the R8 V10 Spyder is a compelling alternative to the 911 Turbo Cabriolet and truly offers supercar-level performance at a relatively budget price:

Point of clarification : Car was purchased brand new by myself on Jan 2013, so there is approx. 2 1/2 years of factory warranty left.

Vehicle carries a 4 year/50,000 mile factory warranty from the date it was first placed in service. Hope that helps!

This car was certainly well specified when bought by the owner, and while impressive it’s also sad that they only enjoyed it for a scant 2,500 miles. It’s doubtful that such a supercar will live anything other than a pampered life, but at the top of the heap in the Audi model range, it’s also unlikely that prices on these cars will ever be cheap. However, as cars move farther and farther into a digital age – with concerns about fuel economy, safety and automatic systems – we may very well look back on this car as one of the last great driver’s cars. Top down, howling V10 behind your ears, 6-speed manual in your hand and your best friend by your side – sounds priceless to me.
