Sexy and fastest car I have ever owned.

I have had five other Audis. This is the most fun of all. I already know the reliability of Audi. The style and performance is unbelievable!!!!


A joy to drive and a pleasure to own.

If I had one word to describe this car, it would be "FUN". It's a joy to drive and a pleasure to own. Get ready to be the envy of everyone you come in contact with when driving this work of art.


Beautiful car and thrilling to drive

This car is not only beautiful but exhilarating to drive. The pure sound and experience of driving this car made it all worth it. In addition to it being only 1 of 320 in the USA and only 1 of 999 in the world you can’t go wrong with the R8RWS
