Forget fragile and flaky supercars, this is an Audi R8 V10 - reliable, practical, sexy, and most importantly fast, very fast.

Introducing the Audi R8 V10, a highly appraised car by racing drivers all over the world for being the best handling road car when it launched. This is the model you want - featuring the newly improved V10 that gives you that edge on the track and the street, a very desirable exotic supercar.

This particular example is a bit special, in coupe form with the V10 power plant, and importantly that open gated 6 speed manual gearbox. On top of the spec, it's only covered some 12,000 miles from new and coming out of 2 and a half years ownership, with just 1 previous owner; a combination that will be hard to match.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Dom after meeting Graham the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

This R8 V10 has been my pride and joy for the last few years, but it's now time to find it a new home.

"This is a superb car, it's been a real pleasure to drive and own," says Graham. This car has a huge amount of power, yet is easy to drive and rather practical. Graham tells us that he looked at a number of other cars like McLaren's and Ferrari's, but found the R8 gave him the experience he was looking for.

After setting his sights on the R8, Graham spent months to find a one owner low mileage example, and in Sepang Blue. Since then, this lovely low mileage example which has been garaged and kept in excellent condition by Graham. Regularly serviced, MOT'd, and work done when required.

Ask the Owner



The supercar with sensational styling. The sporty stance gives it a low and aggressive look which still turns heads today.

Wheels and Tyres

The R8 V10 gets upgraded 19" alloys that are wrapped in nothing less than Pirelli P Zero tyres. These have excellent tread, and the low profile format further adds to the sporty low stance.

The wheels are in excellent condition, take a look at the photos to see for yourself. The tyres have covered just around 2,000 miles since being fitted.


As you would expect from a well-cared for supercar, all the bodywork is in excellent condition. Importantly all panel gaps look correct and tight with no signs of damage.

The R8 V10 has subtle enhancements from the V8, including wider sills and enlarged intakes. The only blemish we could find on the car was a very small area of corrosion on the offside rear wheel arch, take a look at the video and photo review to see the detail.


The "Sepang Blue" paint is in excellent condition in line with the car's mileage, it looks even and consistent in direct sunlight.

It's a colour that really suits this model, deep in colour and complimentary to the styling. Please view the images for a detailed view of the paint.

Glass and Trim

All in excellent condition in line with the rest of the car, during our visit we saw no signs of damage or degradation. The car features a rear window with a view through to the V10, proper supercar stylying.

The headlights are free from any signs of fogging and discolouration.


A minimalist and no-nonsense cockpit puts you in control of this luxurious supercar, that gearstick taking centre stage.

Seats and Carpets

Both seats look in excellent condition on this example. We really like the light grey leather matched with the blue paint. The seats have colour matched Alcantara in light grey for the centre backs, helping to keep you in place around tight bends.

The carpets look great with a deep pile that gives a quality feel, and the "R8" trim in the door frame looks excellent too.

Please take a look at the 'Interior Review' video to see all the details.


The instrument panel is crisp and clearly legible. The dials on the R8 really add to the sporty feeling on this car.

This model was fitted with the Audi Navigation plus entertainment system. All buttons are clean and functioning as expected.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

A flat bottomed steering wheel further gives that sense that this is a proper sports car. The open gated gearshift mechanism steals the show, not many V10 manuals come to market.

Both the steering wheel and gearstick are in very good condition and look to be in line with the mileage and age of the car.


This isn’t any Audi R8, this is the Audi R8 V10 a potent mix of power, pace, and control.

Engine and Gearbox

The improved 5.2L V10 is the highlight of this car - centre stage, surrounded with glass for all to see.

The V10 shares its engine pedigree with the Lamborghini Gallardo, this car is eye-watering-ly quick, 0-60 in just 3.9 seconds.

It's mated to the all-important manual gearbox, very well received when the car was launched and reviewed. Watch our "Cold Start" video above to see the car starting with no issues.

Suspension and Brakes

This car is constantly appraised for its handling and control on the road/track. Graham assures us that the car handles as you'd expect for a supercar of this calibre, and stops just as it should do too.

Black R8 brake callipers and very clean discs look stunning with the rest of the car.

The underside of the car looks free from rust and corrosion - please see the images for a more detailed look. Just watch you'd expect given the low mileage nature of this example.

The Drive

This car was designed to be driven - reliable, practical but not compromising in the power and handling department this is the future of supercars.

Graham assures us the car drives beautifully and fault-free.

Electrics and Other

Not short on electrical features here - this is the first production car to have full LED headlights, also Audi's renowned navigation plus entertainment system, and a full Bang & Olufsen sound system.

All lights, buttons and modes are working correctly on the car with no issues reported. Graham has just spent close to ~£1,000 having the tyre pressure check system fixed as you'll see in the invoices.

History and Paperwork

A low mileage, low ownership, manual V10 R8; a combination that rarely comes to market.

Coming out of 2.5 years ownership, this fine supercar is not short on service history.

The car has been regularly serviced and MOT'd each year - you can tell from the photos how meticulous the owner has been in keeping this car - The vehicle also has a Cobra tracker fitted. Please note that the registration number shown won't be sold with the car, and it will revert back to it's original age related number.

Hi Graham, nice car. The exact spec I’m looking for in fact. I can’t tell for sure from the video if it’s just the light but are there some white stone chips on the bonnet?

Afternoon Graham
How’s the driver’s seat as cream leather can often stain from different coloured fabrics coming in contact?

£30,000 bid by BenShimmin 15.10.2020 @ 20:58:36

Hi Graham,

I hope you’re well and that you’d be able to answer a few questions…
1) Why were 3 tyres replaced rather than 4?
2) Have the brake fluid, gearbox oil, coolant or diff oil ever been changed?
3) Will all the paperwork be provided?
4) How are the brakes – any vibration through the steering wheel or brake pedal?
5) Could a more detailed picture of the corrosion on the offside rear wheel arch be provided – I couldn’t see it in the pictures?
6) There is a white mark under the “V10” badge on the offside front – is this a paint chip?
7) Do the keys fold correctly?


Kulraj Salh

Hi Chris, you can see the area in this picture, it’s 1cm in from where the rear offside wing meets the side body panel;
