R8 v10 plus

Post by S14 » Tue Sep 22, 2015 11:03 pm

Hi all after selling my C63 hunt is on for another car. Looking to spend circa 70 k. Poss looking at the v10 plus coupe around 62 plate. Seen a few at 75-80 k. Where do people think these will be in 2 years? Low 60's?

I'd imagine that once deliveries start of the new V10+ later this year, that more will come to the market as existing owners change up, which of course means prices will drop a little as demand vs supply will, of course, shift
Worth checking too, that many of the early cars you see advertised (i.e. largely 62 plate) are ex audi UK cars, and could have been either demo's or audi experience cars that may have had the life thrashed out of them.
I suspect that come Nov/Dec/Jan, you'll see a few V10+ cars in the low 70's or even high 60's
How that price will change over the next 18-24 months largely depends on how well the new car is received. You only have to look at how the widely criticised Huracan has affected the widely acclaimed Gallardo prices
If you come across a manual V10+ car, it'll certainly hold its value better
Just my tuppence worth

yes id agree think they will certainly drop..

a manual v10 is not so easy to find..has to be ibis white with carbon blades and audi warranty!

I've seen a few Manual + cars come up for sale over the last year or so, but they've been either grey or blue
If a manual Ibis car comes up, you might be racing me to the dealer :)

Unfortunately an Ibis white manual is so rare it doesn't actually exist.
I contacted Audi UK and they supplied me with a colour split of the 18 UK manual Pluses which exist.

Only 3 were customer cars, the rest ordered for demo or stock purposes.

If you're after white car, and none of the other colours appeal, perhaps go the car wrap route?

Just for members' viewing pleasure, here's the colour break down :)

Customer Cars:
1 x Sepang Blue, pearl effect
1 x Sepang Blue, matt effect
1 x Ice Silver, metallic

Demo/Stock Cars:
6 x Sepang Blue, pearl effects as demo cars
3 x Sepang Blue, matt effect - 1 as a demo car and 2 as stock cars
3 x Daytona Grey, pearl effect as a demo car
1 x Brilliant Red as a demo car
1 x Phantom Black, pearl effect as a demo car
1 x Panther Black, crystal effect as a stock car

Wow, top research and quality posting fella. Handy to have if you are hell bent on a manual. Saves someone waiting for what would be a unicorn!

Hello all , just bought a Audi S1 for my wife and imm also on the cusp of coming to back to Audi, had a GTR for 4 years prior to that had a B7 rs4 ( great car I still miss it ) imm interested in this car does any one have any history on it, looks like a nice car whats the manual like to live with, how light is the clutch, I also have a Z4M and the clutch is really heavy , its putting off a " normal car " :) , just after some first hand experience, imm planning on driving a few but after a bit of help.

I don't know that particular car, but can give some insight into the manual having had one to borrow for a week
The clutch isn't overly heavy, and the click clack of the open gate shifter is very nice indeed
I found the pedal spacing in the manual R8 not exactly perfect for heal and toeing, but that might just be me and my clumsy feet :)
