37 posts in this topic

Bit of a long shot, but does anyone know of a new Manual R8 in your local friendly Audi Centre that is a cancelled order/extra allocation and therefore available now??

Nothing used or over list though 169144-ok.gif

If there was one....then potentially why not? But in this case I'm simply asking on behalf of a business associate (therefore not for profit) and wondered if anyone could help.

To be honest you've got more chance of getting a blowjob off the Pope than getting a better offer than that 169144-ok.gif

this thread kinda made me chuckle - why would someone not buy the car themselves and make a simple and easy £5-10k profit by selling on?

PS Anyone seen a Veyron for sale, brand new around the £500k mark, please let me know?

Maybe Adam, but not everyone can afford to pay out the required amount in cash to enable an "easy" £5-10k profit as you put it.

Plus finding someone (Dealer/re-seller) who will pay £5-10k over list-who hasn't already got an R8 for sale-is not "easy" either....

Spot on ! I had a lot of trouble trying to shift my 997 GT3 when they had just come out.Private dealers only wanted it on SOR , it was only until i turned back to the Porsche dealership's that the demand was there.

Aren't all the cancelled orders being offered to so called VIPs by Audi UK? that's what I was told/thought. My dealer has one at 15k over list, they themselves had to pay a premium to get it.

All resolved now and he is getting the car later this week.

We were able to find a car ourselves, but thanks for the help all the same here.

I think anyone buying an R8 for over list is just mad in the first place. bike.thumb.gif

no r8 will be unregistered if built already. audi will take the car off the supplying dealer, if they de-tag the original clients details, and re tag with someone else's. these in turn, normally go to audi vip's. it stops dealers "spoof ordering" cars..
