14/14 R8 V8 Manual (facelift)


2014 Audi R8 Coupe with 4200cc normally aspirated V8 petrol engine and 6 speed manual gearbox with quattro all wheel drive. Suzuka grey pearl effect bodywork with black leather/alcantara interior. Supplied by Audi UK to themselves in April 2014 then sold by Stirlling Audi around a year later to a local property developer. We purchased it directly from him in December 2018 and ran it as our our own car.

25800 miles with a full Audi main dealer service history backed up by all receipts. During our ownership we have replaced the rear tyres, refurbished the wheels, repainted the front bumper, replaced the rear brake discs and pads, the oil pipe from tank to engine and in June 2020 we replaced the oil cooler which was weeping at a cost of £500 (£800 inc labour) - these last two issues are common problems with Mk1 R8 and something the next owner need not worry about.
HPI clear as with all our cars.
Co2 emissions of 332 g/km.
MOT to 20/12/2020

Complete owners manual pack with special alcantara wallet, 2 remote keys, original floor mats front, sat nav DVDs, Apple lightning lead and USB cables with lighting lead extension cable, Audi ashtray for centre console (not used for smoking).

This was my dream car that I'd been building up to buying since I attended the press launch of the new R8 V10 Spyder in October 2016. 26 months later the dream come true. I didn't expect the car to be with me 19 months later as my house was on the market when I bought it and expected to have to sell it to move house. However I ended up buying a cheaper project house (with an R8 sized garage!) and after 7 months in it, I now need to sell the car to fund the redevelopment work. It's been an amazing car which I will sorely miss. I'm not your typical R8 owner and have fastidiously maintained it, lifting it up regularly in my workshop to check it which allowed me to spot the 2 oil leaks before they became a major issue, the most recent requiring replacement of the oil cooler.
