Audi R8 – The low-key supercar

Audi R8 – The low-key supercar

Imagine driving an exotic car to run your daily errands and then taking the same ride to attend dinner at an elegant restaurant. Can you have both the casual daily feel and the elegant, shiny touch at night in a single car, at a good price? Maybe!

Every enthusiast dreams of such a vehicle, but usually most such ideas carry too heavy a price tag. We have good news though! You do not have to look for a Ferrari or Lamborghini to make this dream come true. Meet Audi R8, your low-key, yet fast and handsome supercar that will cost you half the price of similar vehicles!

What is it like to own an Audi R8?

From its inception, Audi R8 has been designed to be more than just a 2-seater sports car. When the German car manufacturer introduced it in 2006, its design and performance immediately placed Audi R8 in the exotic car range.

During the past years, different iterations of this model have been produced, enhancing its engine and perfecting its aesthetics. Owning the latest R8 would make you feel nothing short of a million dollars. Except that it would cost you only around $169,000.

How do they achieve it though? It all comes down to how they designed the car. Its special coupe design gives you that sports feel, yet looks remarkably classy at the same time. The 2020 Audi R8 model has sharp exterior that complements well the power of its engine. The R8 V10 beast gives you 602 hp and can accelerate to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds.

The sports car feel amplifies once you enter the vehicle. With a multifunction wheel, a sports-like driver seat, and the technology offered by the Audi platform you can feel on top of the world! Quite the impressive qualities offered at a reasonable price.

Is it expensive to maintain an Audi R8?

Every car owner and enthusiast knows that the expenses do not end with the car purchase. Maintenance costs should not be underestimated, especially if the car is of a specific model and requires a certified expert to service it.

This applies doubly so to any sports car. In that regard, Audi R8 makes no exception, though the costs may not actually be as high. It requires some routine services such as lubricating the locks, the hood latch, changing the oil, etc. How often? About every 10-20 thousand miles. Considering these and any ad hoc minor services, the overall maintenance cost for this car reaches about $3,000 per year.

If you buy a new car, then most of the routine services will be covered by the Audi Advantage Program for the first year of 5,000 miles of the vehicle’s life. However, with a used car, it is very important that you conduct a detailed check beforehand, in order to see if there are any underlying problems, which impact its performance.

Should I buy an Audi R8?

If you are looking for a daily driver with a supercar twist, then this is your car. The best way to decide is to take it for a test drive and get the whole R8 experience. With that said, there are plenty of things to make you want it!

For instance, the four-wheel-drive Audi R8 classifies under the highly safe supercars. Remember that safety is a hallmark of the German auto industry. Additionally, its strong body shell, electronic stability control, and other additional tracing controls make the Audi R8 a reliable exotic car. But that should be expected at this price point!

Ultimately, this decision that depends on several factors such as your affinity for mid-engine supercars, preference for a specific exterior or interior design, or your budget, among others. If you do not like easy-to-drive cars, then the Audi R8 might seem boring to you.

With all that said, having a sports car may not be what you expect. To learn more, read this: The disadvantages of owning a high performance car!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
