Behold: a supercar limo with a V10

It's the world’s first gullwinged, eight-seater Audi R8

Expensive, two-seater supercars. OK, so they look cool, go extremely fast, have superb handling based on millions of dollars of research, slip through the air like greased lightning after about a decade in a wind-tunnel, and you can sell them on to someone else for lots of money when you're finished. But you can only take one of your mates for a ride.

And if this is the reason you purchased a Vauxhall Zafira over an Audi R8, we have good news. Limo Brokers in the UK now claim to have an answer: an eight-seater R8 limo with eight gullwing doors.

It's an engineering problem we've noticed and tackled before on Top Gear. But our experience making limos proved that it's a lot harder than it looks. And our donor cars included a Fiat Panda, MG F, Saab 9000 and Alfa Romeo 164, not a 390bhp supercar.

Details on the car are - perhaps predictably - very thin. But they've made a CGI video of it, which means that it must be real. It must be. So if you want to rock up to your next stag do in Blackpool in style, have a look at the footage below...

 

Now share it...
