Has anybody seen one of these...?

I finally seen my 1st Audi R8 Super Car on the road! I was on my bike on 610 & Myerland, when one these things blew by me! I knew what it was, but they are so rare to be seen on the streets! They cost around $140,000.!
We were hauling a$$ on 610, then exited San Felipe, then he went into a Hi-rise parking garage! It is a beautiful car, & sounded tough!

Here is some pics of the color I saw:

I saw one and blew by it on the Westpark Tollway before it was even released for public sale. I was like WTF is that...and then I realized it was an R8. I was like those aren't even released yet. He refused to drive it fast whoever it was that owned it.

The attorney in our building owns one. He was recently educated as to where he sat on the HP food chain by a truck.

I'm not such a big fan of the R8. The side panel looks odd, particularly when painted a different color or left as carbon fiber. It's underpowered and overweight. With the R8 at 420 hp and 3,600 lbs a new z-06 (3,180 lbs and 505 hp) will hand it it's . I expect a little more from a $112K car.

True, but Z06's are every where, & on every corner! The rarity is what is appealing to me! You just don't see the R8 very much, if at all! I will never know what its like to own/drive one anyways! I just like the unique look!

I have 2 friends that have Z06's & they make chump pay, but yes they do haul a$$!
