Jet Blue 2010 R8 – “You Never Told Me That ….”

Sep 14

Delivering an R8 is always a great experience for me because the client has usually been waiting anxiously for some time to get their new vehicle, this particular R8 was no different. After special ordering the Jet Blue R8 we were not sure if it was going to be a 2009 or a 2010 so when it showed up as a 2010, both the client and I were very excited. The first 2010 4.2L R8 that we had seen and with this color combination it was a real nice surprise. The next day I recieved a phone call from this new R8 owner, he said ….. “you never told me during the delivery ….” I replied, “I am sorry what did I forget to mention.” He laughed and said, “you never told me it would take me an extra hour to do everything, everyone wants to talk about the R8!” Without going into too much detail I will leave you all with a qoute from another satisfied Sunset Imports client, as well as some pictures I wanted to share…

“Thanks for facilitating this (and the whole thing!). I can see why they call the R8 a “halo” car for Audi: when you’ve got one, you’re so pleased that the glow of your satisfaction extends to Audi, Sunset and all the people who’ve helped you acquire this outstanding product…..and deservedly so!!”

It drives even better than it looks! Scott, you didn’t tell me, but I’m convinced they made some “under the radar” improvements in the v8 engine, because this car is definitely stronger at the low end (still breaking in, so can’t say about higher revs) and SOUNDS better than the ’08 v8 I drove @ the Audi Experience.

1. Performance

Every part in the machine counts.

With our vehicles being developed from the ground up around the world famous & award winning Quattro All-wheel drive, it is no wonder we are the leader in performance.

With countless victories and developments in Le Mans, Rally racing, Pikes Peak, and touring car championships, we build the most competitive All-wheel drive cars in the world. If you are looking for that unfair advantage, welcome to Audi, you have found it.

2. Safety

Why die, when you can live?

Brought to you by the company that pioneered safety standards and crash testing almost 100 years ago, with Audi there is no compromise in safety.

Available with technical advancements such as side guard head protection, Side Assist, adaptive headlights, three point safety belts and many other award winning safety systems as well as L.E.D lighting.

3. Design

Everyone wants to look good right?

Bold dynamic lines with moving surfaces, coupe like design and an aggressive stance on the road whether moving or standing still.

Audi has set itself apart from the rest of the industry with driver oriented cockpits and the leader of interior craftsmanship, materials and fit and finish. Keep in mind our extensive use of aluminum, space frame technology and low center of gravity give you that true Audi experience inside and out.

4. Versatility

Sometimes abundance is not enough.

If you want it, Audi has it. And if you have heard of it, it is most likely an option. Audi builds the most versatile cars in the world. Four door sedan or sport back, Coupe or Sport utility vehicle, big or small, front wheel drive or Quattro, gas fuel or diesel - and you still have to pick a color.

We build vehicles that will truly win races and pick up the groceries on the way home. If you let an Audi tell you it's story, it will never disappoint or disconnect you from the experience.

5. Value

Yes, fair value exchange does exist.

Whether you go with a new Audi and get a 4-year 50k mile warranty, or the certified pre-owned Audi with the most comprehensive 300 + point inspection and up to 6 years, 100k miles, you will not only get the best car on the market,
you will gain piece of mind!

And really, you can't put a price on that.
