Here's your chance to experience the incredible feeling and thrilling attention of driving around in an exotic supercar! The Audi R8 is certainly a stunning, beautiful machine with exceptionally precise engineering that you must drive to appreciate. This all-aluminum vehicle features a 4.2L flat-plane mid-mounted V8 engine with 425 hp and an 8000 RPM rev limit. The paddle-shift transmission is a 6-speed R-tronic automatic transmission, shared with the Lamborghini Gallardo. The power is delivered to all four wheels, accelerating this supercar from 0-60 in 4.0 seconds!
Even better than the acceleration is the handling. The stiff all-aluminum spaceframe makes this vehicle extremely stiff. The magnetic-damping shocks are extremely comfortable and compliant around town, and keep the vehicle flat and planted around curves.
Experience the supercar thrill, impress your client/date, ride in style to a downtown steakhouse, get TONS of attention, rent this car!
DISCLAIMER: My ideal renter is someone who is going to stay near downtown Indy, and below the 100 mile per day limit. Turo is a relatively new service that only recently started getting high end and exotic vehicles. On this vehicle the depreciation rate due to mileage is very high, and the generic $0.75/mile overage rate that Turo has is insufficient to cover this vehicle's depreciation and cumulative maintenance costs. Therefore as terms of this rental, you are agreeing to be charged double mileage above the 100 mile per day limit. For instance if you drive 250 miles in 1 day, I will adjust the final mileage overage charge to 300 miles (250-100=150; 150x2=300). Turo customer service has indicated that they intend to offer variable overage rates in the future, at which point this mileage fudging to compensate will no longer be necessary.
NO SMOKING IN THE R8. There will be a $400 cleaning fee charged if you smoke in this vehicle.
This was my first time doing business with Turo and this was also Jeff's first time renting out his car. I was a little skeptical on going through with the rental initially because I didn't see any reviews or ratings, but everyone who starts out renting their car for the first time has no ratings or feedback. So after doing my due diligence on the actual vehicle , which was in depth to ensure my safety, Jeff's car checked out perfectly fine. I also made sure that this was his car. Since this was my first time renting with Turo and Jeff's first time renting out his car, I decided to do a little research outside of Turo even though he checked out 100% with Turo. That was the reason I decided to go through with the rental bease I felt safe. Jeff was a pleasure to work with, his car is a showstopper, and I would recommend Jeff to anyone looking for an amazing car to rent. His Audi R8 is top of the line. Thanks again Jeff for an amazing experience and I hope my review helps other when they are making a decision on a car they want to rent.
