Just saw the R8-registered R8 at Kalina, was followed by an E-Class. Suddenly pulled over and people from the E started tinkering under the hood etc. I was too lazy to take a picture. But later near Lilavati I spotted this, and got some nice pics since it was stuck in traffic.

It's amusing how people at all levels relate such cars to film stars. When I clicked the pictures and walked on in the opposite direction, a guy in a W211 E240 rolled down his window and went "Boss, koi film star hai kya?" Clearly, this guy missed noticing Bollywood's SUV wave.

Wow thats my favorite color on the R8. I think it looks simply amazing in that color. Doesn't this belong to the owner of the Audi Showroom.Remember seeing pictures of it earlier.

That is a nice color on the R8, simply stunning! Isn't there an audi TT in the punjab thread with the same caramel color?

Also can anyone confirm if it's a demo car or it belongs to the owner as arjunrudra said ??
One of my friends also told me that it belongs to the owner.

+1 I love the shade. Seen it ripping around BKC in the day, looks even better. I like the fact that someone's gone and bought something other than the usual white / black / grey / red sports cars. It's very unique.

Not aware. But I can imagine it would be quite a looker.

Who Sir, me?

IIRC they're CF, the side panels.

I've heard it belongs to the owner. Guessing it's true.

I think he was referring to the black ones.

BTW I saw a white one blasting around Worli Seaface while TD'ing the Aria today.

He is talking about black R8's and not the copper one.
