If you’re a massive Top Gear nerd, you might have already spotted this is a special Audi R8.
It’s a 2007 R8 4.2 V8 FSI manual. The quintessential original R8. And OY07 MHL is the very car you saw on the television, 12 whole years ago, being power tested by one Jeremy Clarkson, in a terrible cream blazer. Okay, it narrowly lost a drag race to the Porsche 911 Carrera S, but you’ve rarely seen a machine go to the Top Gear test track and leave with higher praise.
