I know that Audi R8s are far from rare in any case (even the V10 versions) but I couldn’t resist taking a few quick pictures of this one. I spotted it while walking to my mate Ste’s house to shoot his previously featured Baja Beetle (click here to read the feature) and thought it was was a bit of a surreal sight to see such an expensive car parked up at the side of the road between a load of econo-boxes. This sort of presence is what defines a super car (in my mind at least) and is what makes them so special – it demanded my attention without even doing anything, something only true super cars are capable of doing.
As the response to this blog has been overwhelmingly positive I thought it was about time I made a Facebook fan page for it! All I can say is a massive thank you to everyone that has visited and enjoys what I post and ask that you “Like” the Facebook fan page!
In hindsight, organising a photo shoot a few hundred metres away from a football ground on the day of a match probably wasn’t such a good idea. When the ground is Old Trafford and the match in question is one of the biggest of the season (Manchester United vs. Chelsea) you can begin to understand how much could have gone wrong!
…because I always end up buying both! Fast Car for the fun stuff, Banzai for the nerdy stuff – job done.
As you may have noticed over the last few days the blog has changed quite dramatically. I’ve been moving it over to a new server with the help of Daryl from HostMyBlog.co.uk who has been fantastic in making sure that the whole process went smoothly.
While I had the opportunity I also made some adjustments to the theme to make everything a bit clearer, a bit less cluttered and a bit more colourful. I’ll be adding a few finishing touches over the next few days but for now please let me know your thoughts on it!
I’ve also got a new email address so if you want to contact me about anything related to the blog you can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m a bit surprised that I haven’t covered this car before considering that it resides just five minutes walk from my house. However, saying that, I normally only get to have a look at it when I’m walking home with Ste at the end of a night out, which usually means that it’s 4am and we’re both drunk – not an ideal time to start checking out a car!
