Audi R8 – available to hire April to October
Hire the popular Audi R8 supercar from Sportscarhire, it’s very eye-catching in this iconic Daytona Grey Pearl finish. This V8 manual model is regarded by many as the purist’s choice, lighter than the later V10 with a sweeter chassis balance, a great sound from the classic Audi 4.2 V8, and almost as quick especially out of corners.
The well-equipped spacious leather interior is luxurious and comfortable to travel in for long distances, backed up by exciting performance from the engine from the mid-range right through to the high 7800 rev limit. The 4.2 litre V8 has a deep note at low speed which changes to a howl accelerating from mid to high revs, but is quiet and refined when cruising at motorway speeds, with much less tyre noise from the large low-profile tyres than other similar cars.
In corners it has an enjoyable mid-engined handling balance, combined with good feel from the steering, and class-leading traction and safety in all weathers from it’s 4-wheel drive and electronic systems including electronic locking rear differential which gives it an exciting rear-led stance accelerating out of corners.
Delivery isn’t provided, we focus on keeping our services and mileage affordable for you to collect the car and enjoy driving it home, or explore the great driving roads nearby in North Wales visiting tourist attractions and taking advantage of our package deals at Spa Hotels.
