Audi R8 is one of the most iconic sports cars that was ever launched. One of the reasons for this is the never ageing styling of the coupe and the other one being it was driven by Tony Stark in Iron Man. Since then everyone knows R8 and has a soft spot for it. Unfortunately, R8 was discontinued by Audi in India. It was one of the most value for money supercars that offered immense road presence and exhilarating performance. Now, some of them have hit the pre-owned market which means you can also enjoy the R8 experience at a much less price when compared to its original price.
Here are two Audi R8 that is currently on sale in the used automotive market and are selling for less than a Toyota Fortuner SUV. Both the R8’s on our list are 2009 manufactured and are currently on sale. They are priced under Rs. 45 lakhs which is quite impressive as a new Toyota Fortuner would end up costing around Rs. 46 lakhs for the top-end variant. While buying the R8 would be cheaper than the Fortuner, it would be a lot expensive to maintain an R8 in your garage. Being a discontinued supercar means that it would need special care, maintenance and it would be difficult to find spare parts. However, the screaming soundtrack and the road presence that the R8 will offer is a lot more than what you can get from a Fortuner. The Fortuner is now very common on roads whereas the exclusivity of the R8 is just something different.
