Audi R8 In Florida

August 3, 2007 at 8:32 am Leave a comment


Since Audi announced that they will market the R8 in the United States, performance enthusiasts have been waiting patiently for it to hit showrooms. One unit of the R8 though has made an early appearance at a showroom. Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and Audi of Melbourne showcased one of a handful R8s in the country today. This sports car has been making waves in the auto circle since the announcement of the German automaker.

Today, while no R8s are yet on sale, performance enthusiasts just have to make do with customizing their Audi A8 with aftermarket performance enhancing auto parts. With that much anticipation, the presence of the Audi R8 in the said dealership in Melbourne, Florida can be likened to waving a candy in front of a child but not giving it away.

Why is the R8 special anyway? Let me count the reasons. One, it can reach speeds of 190 miles per hour. Two, it’s a totally wicked ride. Three, it is named after the legendary R8 racecar which has won in the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race. Four, it can totally leave racers eating its dust on any street race. Five, it’s an Audi. Six, it’s Iron Man’s personal choice for personal transport. Seven, its V8 engine produces 414 bhp. Eight, 4.5 seconds from zero to sixty miles per hour. Nine, its based on the Lamborghini Gallardo, and ten, its an Audi. LOL.

Actually, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Anyway, this car that I’m telling you about is actually being displayed as a kind of a distraction. Since the R8 is priced at more than $110,000, the newly arrived Audi TT’s $43,640 would be cheap in comparison.

For those who are in the area and want to take a closer look, you can visit the dealership on NASA Boulevard. You can’t miss it. But for those who are not from the area, you can check out this gallery instead at
