2009 Audi R8 Coupe
420 HP 4.2-Liter DOHC 32 Valve DFI Aluminum V8
Six Speed Manual Transaxle, Gated Shifter
Quattro All Wheel Drive
“The R8 is a thoroughbred sports car with the genes of a true racer. I’ve been able to take it out for a test drive and am impressed with its performance,“ said six-time Le Mans winner Jacky Ickx in front of a group of journalists, guests and others, when the car first came out.
Car and Driver magazine wrote in their article headline at the time, “Supercar gate-crasher. If Jacky Ickx says this 420-hp car is cool, who's gonna argue?”
Bloomberg.com later wrote, “In Case You Forgot, the Audi R8 Is a Pretty Perfect Sports Car”.
This R8 is finished in Phantom Black with optional Carbon Sigma side blades, and a black interior. It is equipped with the magnetic-ride adaptive damping system, bi-xenon headlights, rain-sensing wipers, an aluminum fuel-filler door, an auto-deploying rear spoiler, and twin exhaust outlets exiting through each side of the rear fascia. Clear paint protection film has been applied to the front of the car. Polished 19″ double-spoke alloy wheels are shod with (235/35 front and 295/30 rear) Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires with 2018 date codes. Stopping power is via R8-branded calipers over cross-drilled rotors at all four corners.
The cabin features heated and power-adjustable bucket seats trimmed in black leather with white stitching with a matching dashboard, door panels, carpets, and floor mats. Equipment includes automatic climate control, cruise control, power accessories, a gated shifter, and an upgrade to a Kenwood eXcelon infotainment system with smartphone compatibility. The newer steering wheel (original included) was sourced from a later-model R8. Instrumentation includes a 220-mph speedometer, tachometer, auxiliary gauges, and a digital message display.
This is a two owner car, first registered in Maryland, with time in Virginia prior to its acquisition by the seller in June 2018. While eminently capable in any weather, it has not been driven in rain or snow since. The air conditioning system was recharged in May 2020, and recent service included an oil & filter change.
The Carfax report shows an incident in June, 2010, with damage to the left side. The driver’s door was properly refinished, and there is no indication of damage. Another minor incident is shown in May 2010, when a shopping cart reportedly struck the car. As it sits, the car is pristine and mark free, inside and out. Any concerns about its future ownership should be more than offset by the included and transferable Fidelity Platinum Warranty, with its complete coverage to April, 2025 and 78,000 miles!
This R8 comes with a clean Montana title in the name of the seller’s business, as well as all Audi books, records, two key fobs and an Audi car cover.
