View Full Version : Tri-state area, be alert, an R8 is on the road!

Was heading to my internship today from Armonk to Chappaqua taking 120 and what I came up 4 cars behind I couldn't believe. It was an R8, a full production R8. I knew they aren't for sale yet so I had to get close. A dotted yellow line came up so I got right up behind it and snapped this shot. It has New Jersey plates if you want to be on the lookout. I spoke to the guy driving it briefly when I pulled up next to him and he told me he was an Audi test driver. Audi doesn't pay him, he just gets new cars and gets to be the sh** out it, lol. Good guy, but man is that car gorgeous. The showroom floor doesn't do it justice, when it's on the road, it looks 100 times better.


Sorry for the blurry image, I used my cellphone while trying to stay on its tail on curvy roads. This was the best shot of the 5 I took.

Haha, agreed. Hey redhott06, I think I saw your car at the shell station in Armonk the other day. The car I saw matched your cars mods exactly. You have a TIP right? Where do you live in bedford? I live off Bedford Banksville Road. I don't know if you saw me walkin all around it looking at it at all though.

And back to the thread, yea, I would pay to be an Audi test driver. Can anyone say S5 test, lol?

Sounds like Sundays at the Crab Shell are back in action. Good memories from that place... well, blurry memories.

R8, I can't wait to see one on the road. When I finally see one, I'll have to be careful to not get into an accident as I stare at it.
