Introduction

Audi’s flagship supercar burst onto the scene back in 2006 at the Paris Motor Show. At the time, the supercar was more than just a new model for the company. It was a statement. One that proved to the international community that Audi had the technological expertise and experience to build a modern day supercar that could rival the best in the industry.

Despite its age, the basic architecture of the car hasn’t changed even with this latest iteration. Built around Audi’s patented Aluminum Space Frame that weighs in at just 210 kilos, the car is able to maintain a kerb weight of just 1,570 kilos.

While this latest V10 Plus edition hasn’t seen any major changes under the skin, the ‘Plus’ in Audi speak means the boys at Ingolstadt have taken a fine tooth comb through their flagship supercar and have made this the ultimate evolution of the current R8 before a new generation takes over.

The entire experience from registering my car on OneShift to the handing over to the dealer was very pleasant. The process at OneShift was efficient and transparent. Special thanks to RenAi from OneShift who was very detailed and helpful.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
