This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a harder core Audi R8 test mule out and about. However, previous cars we’d dubbed “Bigfoot” for their widened tracks and extended fenders had a bit of a different look to them than the car that’s turned up this week. This time around, the track appears to be identical to the current R8, though it sports significantly changed lower aero in the form of a body kit with side skirts, and also a really large and extended trunk-mounted spoiler.

Yes, we all know Iron Man drives an Audi R8. Ingolstadt’s cars have been making cameos in Iron Man movies since the very beginning, and we’d surprised if that were to change at any point. However, a more real life question might be just what the actor who plays Iron Man drives in real life. For that we turn to an in-depth feature in this month’s Vanity Fair magazine and also available HERE. More…

We’re not sure if we’ve seen this car before or not. If not, we’ve seen the twin to this Audi Exclusive Classic Red V10 coupe rolling around Waterfest 2013. Regardless, we’re loving the look… very different from most R8 coupes. The car also has a healthy mix of modifications and low mileage at 7,410, which likely explains the price sill at $164,995.

Any car enthusiast wouldn’t notice the extensive modification to this sportscar.

Last September most anyone in automotive journalism was prepping for the Frankfurt motor show. A-listers were probably flying into Frankfurt as invited guests of manufacturers or test-driving new models in ahead of the event. Others were likely in Germany trying to nail down a few local stories before heading in for the event. Such was the case for Motor Trend YouTube staffer Jessi Lang who’d gone to Kempten, Germany in order to test drive the Audi R8 GTR built by Abt Sportsline. That was the plan, until Lang was involved in an accident while at the wheel of the half million dollar Audi, an accident that saw the demise of the car and another Audi and the helicopter medivac of both drivers.

Here’s a theme you don’t see on an Audi R8 every day. A firm named raum22 endeavored to show off the flexibility of vinyl wraps using a nicely modified R8 as a base. Unlike many wrap “show cars” this one actually sports a healthy dose of tasteful upgrades, though we suspect it’ll be the new skin that grabs most of the attention. For the latter, the team at raum22 went down the well-traveled road of a military theme, though skipped the ubiquitous matte green or Jon Olsson inspired arctic camo and went straight to F16 Arctic Aggressor Fighter Jet “livery”.
