You folks are usually pretty quick to spot an R8 worthy of a speculative bid....any thoughts on this?

These were our thoughts when it was put up for sale last year:

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=10755

Its value will ultimately depend on how badly somebody wants to buy one: they do not exactly come up for sale on a regular basis :wink3

@ 220 GSi Turbo...

Thank you for taking the time to refer me to those posts - I missed it.

I agree - the pictures this time round don't offer much clarity on the bodywork.

Even so, I'm giving it serious consideration.

We're all clearly familiar with its past, so there won't be many surprises.

Support for the R8 turbos remains very strong. No shortage of engineering expertise where and when it's needed.

It was bid up to £2.7k with out the reserve coming off, it's obviously been photo shopped and he has relisted it! Some one bids that knowing it has the wrong gearbox and noisy tappets and it's not enough!

Obviously looking for a mug imo. :glare

Not that I made a bid i should add :)

What, one from a NASP 220/620Ti with the shorter ratios (3200RPM 5th gear @ 70 MPH)? My old coupe had that.

According to the ad it had a non torsen diff in the box plus spares etc.
