Simply awesome . With the initial photos I thought it was the different shade of brown. The one that comes in the convertible. This looks even better and Audi must try providing this color for its R8 customers.
Drop dead gorgeous.

Not so bad is it shamik? Imola yellow is the colour shown here

That said, it does look like a supersonic schoolbus
looks good imo.. It should look better in real than in the snap..

Default r8 at Bandra

Hi guys,
i was driving back from BKC and on the signal near the LIC office i spot this beauty, must say that this car has awesome road presence.
the guy was revving like crazy,i totally floored my GV to keep up but couldn't.
i got some pretty bad shots from my mobile camera but good luck struck on the signal near the highway,got a good shot from my Digi-cam.

Spotted a grey R8 an hour ago. I was waiting for the valet at Indus and he came by that road, took a left and went towards Radio Club. Number plate 5050. Looked great, was a little soft on the ears though!
Once i got my car a few moments later i went that way but there were no traces of the R8. He probably went to Prive or back to Colaba through the Koyla lane.

From the Photos , one can say it has quite good ground clearance(for something like Audi R8)(But then the roads also look pretty amazing)
Is R8 easily Drive-able on Roads in Mumbai ?
Because I am sure in Bangalore the R8's would be having a real tough time !

@funky devil- thanks for the info,did not know that

@phro- the bandra bkc road where i spotted the R8 is a nice patch of smooth road, other than that i am sure the R8 would have a tough time in mumbai too.
