Appearing on the cover of the magazine
When I wrote the first one of these, I think I promised a second update would follow in a couple of weeks time. It’s now been over a month. Sorry about that. If you want to read the first story about life with an R8 V10 Plus, click here.
Now, I don’t know if you saw the magazine last month, but this was the cover - and one of the key reasons we choose a bright, stand out colour. If the R8 had been black or grey or blue we wouldn’t have put it in the front left corner, simple as that. Yellow stands out.
I know the bumblebee colour scheme is a brave choice, but personally I think it works as well in reality as on the cover of the mag: it’s striking from far away, but when you get up close you notice the detail in the carbon work on the mirrors, sideblades and wing.
