Spy Photo: Audi R8 V10 RWD GT?

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="67743"] A last ”Hurrah” to the R8 or just some performance parts?

Find of the Day: 2009 Audi R8 6sp…RWD

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="64068"] words: Bill, photos: Jay Dub I love the MK1 R8 especially the V8 model.

Take this 2009...
