ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

An Audi R8 may not seem like the best daily driver, but this 2009 Audi R8 V10 seems to have had that exact duty. It's the highest-mileage R8 currently listed for sale on Autotrader, as it's offered by Black Label Auto Firm in Riverside, California, east of Los Angeles, with an impressive 77,912 miles.

How does an R8 accumulate so many miles? The first owner bought it new in 2009 and added about 10,000 miles per year, as did the second owner, who bought it used in 2013. The third owner got it in 2015 and added another 20,000 miles, bringing the total to 77,912 -- a lot for a midengine exotic car that normally gets stashed in a garage and only driven on special occasions and sunny days.

But while 78,000 miles is a lot for an Audi R8, it also comes with a decrease in price: This particular example is listed for just $78,777, which is a low price for the sports car. Better yet, this one features the muscular 5.2-liter V10 engine, borrowed from Lamborghini models, giving it extra grunt over a regular R8. It's also finished in white with a "saddle" red interior and a black dashboard, and it boasts aftermarket wheels and a black "side blade."

If you're not intimidated by high miles, this R8 might be a good buy -- especially at this price.
