The R8 is a tantalising vehicle, the apex of performance, design and technology despite its power it remains a surprisingly practical super car. Since its release the car has gone from strength to strength selling 28,600 models and acting as Audi’s prestigious flagship.
The car is a monster, with incredible speed and performance. Its story began with the success of Audis R8 Le Mans prototype. A concept super car was unveiled at the 2003 Frankfurt motor show to celebrate Audi’s continued racing dominance. This was the Audi R8 Le Mans Quattro concept. The first generation R8 entered production in 2006.
The R8 received a visual facelift in 2012 with a second generation being released in 2015. The 2nd generation saw a switch from Lamborghini’s Gallardo platform to the new Huracán platform. With it came improvements to the power and weight. The car features an Aluminium and Carbon fibre composite construction.
The second generation R8 no longer features a V8 model, with its two models divided into the V10 and V10 plus. The V10 plus has 610 BHP and puts the R8 firmly in the big leagues of super car performance as Audi’s first 200 mph car.
The R8 is calm and comfortable at low speed, morphing when you open the throttle. It is an adaptable car with a broad appeal.

I've been insuring with Keith Michaels for quite a few years now & have been very satisfied with the service. They have been very helpful & give a very personal service. Even after shopping around each time, (as we are all told to do!) Keith Michaels prices are still very competitive & hard to beat.
Can never fault these guys. Renewed for the 3rd year running as they've great price and amazing customer service!
A human voice answered the phone straight away and gave me a competitive quote quickly and efficiently, which I accepted. Confirmation processed quickly too. Efficient use of their time and mine.I am a new customer so time will tell whether I remain satisfied!
Excellent service, after returning to UK after a long period away, they took care of my insurance needs in a very professional and efficient manner as well as being very competitively priced.
As an expat with a home in the UK it was great to find a broker who had insurance companies on the books who were willing to recognise No Claims gained in the EU
Honest guys. Very straight forward.
Spoke to a helpful Chap called Matt Moody (great name by the way), who was anything but what his name suggests. He was patient with me and found me a really competitive quote. Would recommend!
Effortless process and wonderful service. Their tailored expat products take all the heat out of something that other insurance companies seem to want to over complicate. Cannot recommend highly enough.
