Finally! After 6 long months from the day we ordered her....The V10 R8 Spyder has made her arrival at the dealership today!
We leave this coming week to go pick her up!


After she is cleaned up and prepped tomorrow, I'm promised a video. They say she sounds awesome!

Wait just a second now. You just bought this:




And you're already taking delivery of a spankin' new road rocket? Well, not to say that I disapprove of your new car, but please give the rest of us a chance to buy a nice car!

that R8 Spyder is a beauty! More pix please. Oh, since you seem to be a major collector, do you store all your cars off-site in a rented garage? I know here in Cali, some enthusiasts actually partner with other collectors and establish "museums" that are basically fancy air-conditioned garages to take advantage of certain tax credits that offset their expenses.

Thank You All. More pics to come as I get them. At the moment, She is sitting in NC....I am in Tx. Having to depend on the Dealership to send me the pics. As mentioned, a video is suppose to be forthcoming.
@ Nico7....I have nicknamed these two Reds: Beauty and The Beast. Pics, side by side are bound to happen quickly, as soon as Beauty makes her debut into the garage.
@ SG: We do have a 3 car garage w/lift. While we do "collect".. and have had some "different" cars, they are not garage queens in the least. We actually drive and enjoy them. So...having said that, we don't keep them very long...Enjoy, sell and onto the next! The new R8 will be my daily driver.
Her predecessor was 2009 R8 Coupe, which I loved...the Spyder can only be better!

We bought our first R8 from the same dealership, but in SC. Very few dealers got allocations for this car. Here in Houston...I would have been 4 or 5 th on their list....We had told the SC dealership when we bought the coupe, we would be interested...that was 2 yrs ago...and to put us on their list then. They did...and that is how we were able to snag a spot. It just so happened it was going to the NC dealership....The Houston dealership has yet to even have their ONE allocation built...as most dealerships around the country. I hear Dallas has one...which the owner of the dealership is keeping for himself. Only 250 of these cars coming into the US for 2011.
