Use this code to get $25 off your first Turo rental: Rent my gorgeous, ultra exotic 2011 V10 Audi R8 Spyder for the ultimate sports car experience. Video here: The R8 borrows the chassis, V10 engine and AWD system from the Lamborghini Gallardo. The scream of the 525 horsepower V10 behind your head will confirm that you're in a true, mid-engined exotic. The roof raises and lowers in 19 seconds, at up to 30 mph. The seats are heated and the rear window glass can be raised even when the roof is down to act as a wind blocker, so this is truly a 3-season convertible. This is the perfect car for taking out to the mountains, visiting wineries, or just getting lost on some twisty back roads around here. Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National Park are only 45 minutes away. Super twisty Rt. 619 (Bristow Road/Joplin Road) is 5 minutes away. Or just get the best valet parking spot at the restaurant. I'm only a couple miles from the Manassas Amtrak/VRE station, and I work at home full time, so if you take the train to Manassas, I can generally pick you up. You can take the Metro to either the Union Station stop in DC or L'Enfant Plaza or to King Street in Virginia and pick up VRE at any of those three locations. Here is the VRE Manassas schedule. (South is towards Manassas and North is back to DC.) This is a very safe neighborhood, so also feel free to leave your car parked here while you drive mine.

Add optional Extras to your trip at checkout.
Prepaid refuel
Save time and make dropoff a breeze by adding this Extra, which allows you to return my car at any fuel level. Price includes up to a full tank of gas. Price is a little higher because of the premium unleaded and b/c this car has a 24 gallon tank!


My Audi loves the open roads but hates pothole-filled DC streets and parallel parking. Please do not rent if you're planning on taking it into Washington DC. Car takes only 93 octane premium fuel. Must return car with gas receipt. Per Turo rules, no track use is permitted. No smoking in or around the car. Please treat my car as if it were your own. NO PETS!


  • Can I drive your car 100+ miles per hour?
    No! This should be obvious, but I've had multiple renters in the past drive my other cars well over 100 mph. One individual went over 120 on several occasions. I have trackers on all of my vehicles, so if you're planning to drive recklessly, please don't rent. This is a fun and extremely fast car, but it must be treated with respect.

It was a great experience renting Jim's R8. He was extremely accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable about the car and went through everything in detail prior to the rental . Would 100% recommend. Thank you!

The R8 was a great ride. Exciting horsepower and superb handling, yet surprisingly comfortable for touring the nearby roadways. Jim explained all of the features and was very flexible regarding pickup & dropoff. A+!
