R8 in Kerala, that's a hot news. I love R8 because of its sheer road presence, very few cars can match that. Once I had seen a R8 parked next to a Phantom and boy people were more interested to check R8 than Phantom, especially girls!!

The R8 is sheer good news. It is probably the only proper road-ready supercar, which can be used for daily use. If the FE is not a concern, it is supposedly a good car to live with everyday. Simple Audi sensibility, and maddening Lambo engine! Killer combo, killer looks, great road cred, Simply great car! What is the colour going to be?
Please tell me its going to be red!

Nice pics Scorchy, but I think it would have been better if you'd posted the original pics (without editing).

Sorry to be spoiling the party, but I'm such an R8 fan that I tend to point out mistakes. It is an Audi RS4 engine which does service in the "normal" R8. I doubt the one that's coming to kerala will be the V10.
However another R8 is amazing news.
@Hanmust: Please can we get detailed pics when it gets here?

I can tell only about colour now, that it'll be black!

The V8 FSI will only be coming, and as said only V10 is from Lambo!

Looks - Check
Engine - Check
Exhaust note - Check*10

Practicality - Check

Best Supercar for Kerala roads ? Did I hear that part right ? No way dude, the owner is going to have huge effort to keep it from not biting dust. Especially if it is in North-Kerala. I'm not a Poker fan, but i think the 911 is best suited for Kerala. But would appreciate R8's,Lambos and Ferrari's. They more more of a status symbol than a user-friendly car in here.

Even if I plan on buying something big, I'll first buy a used 911 Carrera or something for me to get used to the whole game. Then I'll go ahead and buy the Big brothers. R8, defenitly not for starters. It doesn't bite your head off like the LP640, but being a proper super car, it demands much more than a sports-car.

Exhaust note - Not check. The R8's V8 block gives out a nice growl, but the exhausts note is nothing to boast about. Infact, it is among the most silent of the lot. it is infamous for that. Aftermarkets can help though.

Practicality - Are you sure ?
