2009 Audi R8 4.2 FSI Coupe
This original Audi R8 4.2 FSI is in excellent condition throughout and demands viewing to fully appreciate the quality and condition.
As Audi’s first supercar, the R8 won instant and universal approval for its inspired design and incredible performance.
Matching permanent Quattro four-wheel-drive with a lightweight rigid spaceframe, Audi engineered a perfect formula for their new flagship model. Featuring an all-aluminium chassis and carbon fibre centre tub, the hi-tech structure was powered by a mid-mounted and gloriously free-revving V8 powerplant. It was this balance and combination which provided the R8 with sublime levels of performance and road holding leading 6-time Le-Mans winner Jacky Ickx to claim the R8 as “the best handling road car today”.
With the incredible V8 producing 414bhp without the need for turbo-charging, 0-62mph sprints were achieved in less than 4.3 seconds. This together with Audi’s aero-space technology and renowned levels of engineering further ensured that performance of the R8 was capable of embarrassing many of its rivals.
First registered in 2009, this R8 4.2 FSI coupe is a completely original and immaculately cared for example. Finished in near perfect metallic Daytona Grey metallic paintwork with black Nappa leather interior contrasting with the exposed aluminium interior, optional extras include satellite navigation and the superb Bang and Olufsen entertainment system.
The excellent condition of all aspects including paintwork, leather interior, alloy wheels and mechanicals help to demonstrate how this R8 Coupe has been cared for. A full service history further confirms that thorough care and maintenance has been carried out regardless of cost with the most recent service and MOT having just been completed.
