No chance of a v10 r8 under 1 cr. v8 yes. Plenty should be available in delhi at least.

We looked far and wide and narrowed our search to four cars:


1. Nissan GT-R
2. Audi R8 V10
3. BMW Z4
4. Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder


The Z4 seemed a good option but we were disappointed with the performance. GT-R was eliminated early as my buyer didn't like the look too much.

The Gallardo Spyder was perfect but way over budget so that leaves us with the R8 V10. We saw it yesterday and loved it. Now the final decision is that of the buyer.

Good to see you have an R8 V10 waiting for a decision. May the good god give your friend the wisdom of quick decision making and we have a R8 review soon

A Z4 in the list with pure supercars..i really wonder if the guy knows his cars or is just for the show part of things.

The Godzilla eliminated for its looks dam..performance wise it will eat the other three and even a Ferrari for breakfast.

Your friend could even look at the Ferrari F430.

Z4 because he wanted to see a convertible option. F430 we couldn't find within the 1 Crore budget.


Also, bhai to each his own. Personally even I am bonkers for the GT-R but to some it may seem less appealing...

Look for a M3 convertible, that would be fit to be in the list and not a z4.

Sir ji please find me an M3 convertible, I would be indebted to you. I've looked around all second hand luxury car dealers and none of them have got even a hard-top M3 for sale.


Zkaria: The R8 V10 in question is JH registered and has 5000 kilometers on the clock. It has all the options, including reverse camera, Carbon Fiber Pack and Bang and Olufsen entertainment system. The car is white in color and is only for sale because the original owner decided to get a Gallardo.

Z4 needs to be taken out of that list for sure.

There are a few RS5's that can be found for around 65 Lakhs with very less on the odo. No it is not a convertible and even the large sunroof does not open, just pops up for ventilation but on all other aspects it's a brilliant car! Having spent 3 months with it, I love it more and more each day.
I'd stay away from the M3 now, it looks and feels rather dated now. The replacement M4 is due soon too.

I was offered the R8 V10 JH-999 you mentioned, it seems like a good buy but price needs to be negotiated well. What are they offering it for now?

Keep a look out on carwale.com they seem to have some good listings at times.

If you are not buying the V10 let me know the contact details. I know someone who is. Please PM me.
