The first generation of the R8 was built for nearly ten years and they used the Lamboghini Gallardo platform. These cars were exclusively designed, developed and manufactured by their high performance automotive parts division. They have been described as the best handling road car and have quite a following. Sales figures in the US show that they have kept production to well under 1000 units with the exception of 2011 where just over 1000 units were sold. This particular R8 is finished in a nice color combination and has traveled just under 50,000 miles since new. It has a clean carfax, has been serviced and is ready for its next owner. This car starts, runs and drives nicely.
