It’s an impressive car the R8. Even in photos the car doesn’t have bad angle. Standing there in front of one though you get the whole package of eye-candy all at once. You spend ages walking around the car looking at the detail of the design marvelling at how it all hangs together so well and then appreciating that it looks bigger and has more presence than it appears in the photographs. It’s a car that looks like it’s doing a ton when it’s standing still. The build-quality is superb too and so it should when they use lasers to scan the car’s gaps and joints during the build process. R8’s used to fetch huge premiums when they were first launched and although pricing has now settled down you will still have to join a waiting list for a speccable car. However, if you want one today with nice low miles we have just added an Audi UK supplied Ice Silver example that we are selling on behalf of the owner. This one has the sought-after Magnetic Ride Option and the R tronic sequential gearbox. The sideblades are exclusively painted to match the body colour and the interior is in matching grey Leather with Alcantara panels. With only 500 miles on the clock this R8 is barely run-in and the condition is as you would expect for a car with such low miles. For full details of this stunning R8 please click here.

Funny how some film directors either get it dead right or dead wrong when it comes to casting the part for ‘car of the future’ for their latest mega-buck movie.

Take the car featured in Alex Proyas’s ‘I,Robot’ for instance. Audi were given a brief to provide a super-cool sports car for super-cool Will Smith and along came the RSQ. The designers at Audi quite likely had this car doodled for some time before the film but happily a bit of product placement would do wonders for the up-and-coming R8 that the world has gone gaga for today. There had to be some adjustments in the design of course because no self-respecting auto artist would include wheels on a car that was to be driven on the ‘roads’ of 2035. It seems that we will be riding along on balls instead. Hmmm.

Over the past year we have been asked on an increasing number of occasions whether we can supply new versions of sought-after or long-waiting-list cars. Well the time has come when we can emphatically say ‘yes’. Through our contacts in the trade we have access to a comprehensive range of models from Audi, Ferrari, Land Rover, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Maserati and Lamborghini all of which we will be highlighting on the website as and when they become available. Because of the high demand of certain models it may be a case of first come, first served since the supply situation can be very fluid and even prices can change on a daily basis. Nevertheless if you have a purchase in mind it will be worthwhile getting in touch to see if we can help.
