I guess this is the same car that was being transported from Kolkata when I saw it. Btw, something's probably wrong with the attachment

Please do read the post my friend. Flyingspur has mentioned that the R8 registered R8 was at Kalina and he did not take pictures of it. This copper one is spotted at Lilavati at a later time. So this is the Audi West car and not another one. Copper colour R8 count in Mumbai is still one.

I wonder how did your friend manage to get the car down from UAE and have it registered too my friend. UAE is LHD country ? Is it that the car came from another country with Dubai or any other state as a transit point to India? I am seriosly baffled by this. Could you please post Pictures of the car and not like in the case of the corvette, where pics were taken from outside the property and claims were made of being friends with the owner. I would like interior pics as well. Thank you.

@arjunrudra: I doubt the R8 is damaged. Its probably only being transported.

I'm talking about the other one who someone spotted and said that it had a damaged rear without tail lights and a bumper.

It is damaged Shamik. This is the same car funkydevil mentioned as one black had an accident. I confirmed with my cousin too and the car did get rear ended by another car. This car pictures are a few pages behind posted by ysoserious i think.

Speedy has already clarified, but I'll just add to it here. The Copper R8 bears a 3 and is not R-8 registered. R-8 is the black one.

1.15 is the Ex Showroom for the one you see above which is the 4.2 FSI engine, and 1.4 ( not sure) is the ex showroom for the 5.2 FSI.

On road cost will depend on what options you take.

The 5.2 is officially here? None have been sold yet, I presume.
