Last Chance to Own the Iconic 42-Mile Audi R8 GT RWD: Act Now!

Limited Release: Only 150 Sold in the USA

An exclusive chance has presented itself to acquire a 2023 Audi R8 GT, one of only 333 units available. This marks the final release of the R8 series, which concluded production in the previous year.

The discontinuation of the Audi R8 has led to numerous clearance deals around the world. Although some were seen as recently as a month ago, the official final run for the American market was announced in 2022. The 150 units allocated for our country were quickly sold out, making this current auction listing on Barrett-Jackson a unique chance to obtain Audi’s ultimate V10 sports car.

The vehicle in question is identified as model number #264 and has only been driven for a mere 42 miles since its manufacturing. What’s even better is that all of the original protective wrapping from the factory remains intact, making this car essentially brand new. The Monroney sticker can still be found on the window, proving that this car has never been owned by anyone before except for its potential new owner – which could be you.

The vehicle is coated in Mythos Black (although Tango Red and Daytona Gray were offered in the US, Suzuka Gray was not offered at launch) and features laser headlights. It also comes equipped with standard carbon fiber mirror caps, side blades, and side sills, all sitting on a set of forged 20-inch rims. While these elements are certainly noteworthy, it’s the top-hung rear wing and sharp canard flics that truly catch the eye. Moving inside, the cabin is predominantly adorned with black leather, carbon fiber, and Alcantara, while pops of red stitching add some visual intrigue.

If the design fails to get your heart racing, the motor, which channels all of its power to the back axle, will surely do the trick.

The latest iteration of the Audi R8 stands as the most dominant model ever crafted by Ingolstadt. Its 5.2-liter V10 engine boasts a staggering output of 602 horsepower, which is skillfully distributed through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with revised gear ratios. In just 3.4 seconds, this powerhouse can accelerate from 0-60 mph, reaching an impressive top speed of 199 mph (although we have no doubt it could surpass 200 mph given enough open road).

What will be the total cost of this? It is difficult to estimate as this is a recent exclusive release. Additionally, since no minimum price has been set for the listing, it is possible that it could end up selling for less than the manufacturer’s suggested retail price, although this is unlikely. Just to jog your memory, out of the 333 units manufactured, we received 150 units and each was initially priced slightly under $250,000.

There have been instances where sales have exceeded $100,000 more than the current amount, so it is uncertain. We will gain knowledge once the auction concludes in Scottsdale, which will be held from January 20 to 28.
