Here Are the Cheapest Audi R8s For Sale on Autotrader

Later today, I’m going to explain my thoughts on why the original Audi R8 was such a success. But before I get there, I wanted to show you the cheapest Audi R8 models currently listed on Autotrader. No, this isn’t actually a listing of the very cheapest R8s, because that would be dull — instead, I’m showing you the cheapest R8 models of several versions. You have, for instance, the cheapest V10, the cheapest manual, the cheapest dual-clutch car, the cheapest convertible, and, of course, the overall cheapest R8. Enjoy!

2000 Audi R8

The Cheapest R8: $59,492

This is the overall cheapest Audi R8 currently listed for sale on Autotrader — a rather fetching light-blue 2008 model (from the R8’s first year) with an R-Tronic automatic transmission and an unusually high 61,000 miles on the odometer — accounting for the low price. Offered by HGreg in Doral, Florida, this R8 is jut $59,492 — a far cry from its original price and potentially an excellent deal, even in spite of the miles, given its clean interior and exterior. Find a 2008 Audi R8 for sale

2009 Audi R8

The Cheapest Manual R8: $67,800

This is the cheapest stick-shift R8 on Autotrader: a 2009 model with 37,683 miles and, indeed, a true gated 6-speed manual transmission between the seats. Despite its exterior finish in Audi’s most common color — silver, of course — the interior is primarily black, save for the bright red seats. Offered by Sanfer Sports Cars in Miami, this R8’s asking price of $67,800 reflects its reasonably high mileage and its early model year — but that desirable stick shift still seems to be commanding a premium over the automatic. Find a 2009 Audi R8 for sale

2010 Audi R8

The Cheapest R8 V10: $75,000

An available V10 engine was added to the R8 for the 2010 model year, and this is the cheapest V10-powered R8 currently listed for sale. Offered by a private seller in Imperial Beach, California, just south of San Diego, this 2010 R8 V10 is black with black wheels, and it’s listed for just $75,000. It uses an automatic transmission, and it’s likely so cheap because of its history: Carfax reports this R8 has a California rebuilt title stemming from a 2014 accident in Georgia. Nonetheless, if it was repaired right, this could be a good deal for someone especially interested in a V10-powered R8 without spending a fortune. Find a 2010 Audi R8 for sale

2011 Audi R8

The Cheapest R8 Spyder: $78,991

The cheapest R8 Spyder currently listed on Autotrader is this one: a 2011 R8 Spyder with a V8 engine, aftermarket wheels and the R-tronic automatic transmission. Offered by Brickell Luxury Motors in Miami, this R8 Spyder is listed for $78,991 with just over 25,000 miles — and, like the other R8 models on this list, it appears to be in excellent condition, though it has a few aftermarket modifications. It took a few years for Audi to offer a convertible version of the R8, which is why this is so much more expensive than the cheapest coupe — and R8 Spyders seem to be holding their values nicely. Find a 2011 Audi R8 for sale

2014 Audi R8

The Cheapest Dual-Clutch R8: $92,990

Probably the very best first-generation R8 models — aside from the stick-shift examples, if that’s your thing — are the 2014 and 2015 versions with a dual-clutch automatic transmission. The dual-clutch was only offered in those years, replacing the increasingly outdated R-tronic, and it’s known to be quite robust. This is the cheapest R8 currently listed on Autotrader with that desirable dual-clutch: a black 2014 R8 Coupe, currently offered for $92,990 with just under 35,000 miles by Elite Motorcars in the San Francisco Bay Area city of Concord, California. Find a 2014 Audi R8 for sale

  1. The manual R8 is the one to get, in my opinion. Not just for the stick shift, but also because the miles aren’t terrible, the color combo is fantastic and it likely stands the best chance at retaining its value (no mods and clean history are big pluses, too) when the next owner is done with it.
