you might be surprised with option prices on an R8...a few examples:

leather pack 2 -Fine Nappa quilting   $13,140   
Alcantara headlining -diamond quilt   $5,075
air vents - fine Nappa Leather   $2,000   
centre console - fine Nappa Leather   $4,000   
door sill trims -Carbon illuminated   $5,600
Audi Exclusive floor mats - R8 logo   $1,230

Its not 18k for a stripe or 45k for a roof scoop, but these are high option prices nonetheless...

:eek:

You are right, I am surprised !
No wonder they don't sell a lot of these things.

Try getting one out the door for that price.

Isn't that the T model spec? No power steering, no radio most likely hasn't got seat belts as standard!

The difference between the R8 V10 plus and Huracan in terms of driving feel, acceleration, sound, etc is quite significant, I've spent a whole day with a bunch of R8s the other day, fantastic car but a bit too soft for my liking, I'd compare it with a 991.

To me in this price bracket its between Huracan 580, 991 GT3 (when the MK2 arrives), or McLaren 570s.
I like the R8 but I wouldn't choose it over one of the above.

I can't get over the looks. The previous R8 looked like nothing else on the road. The new one looks like a bigger version of the TT.

Harris video on the R8… and his thoughts on the Huracan… which are… direct to say the least…

Very harsh on the Huracan. I didn't know he dislikes it so much.

The multiple mode setup reminds me of the M5s I had. A real turn off.
