Description

There are sports cars—and then there are supercars. With the Audi R8, you get the best of both worlds. Officially launched at the Paris Auto Show, the R8 debuted as Audi's first mass-market supercar in 2008. As the brand's halo car, it ushered Audi into a new era. Though the design is over 10 years old now, you'd never know it. The original R8 still looks just as modern—and turns the same number of heads—on the road today. The R8 channels elements from all the greats that came before it: mid-engine layout, gated manual transmission (drool), and an exotic power plant. It also injected Audi's own unique identity into the traditional supercar formula with a space-frame aluminum chassis, Quattro AWD, and the now unmistakable carbon fiber side-blades. With the perfect balance of German engineering, supercar looks, and everyday drivability, this is the analog supercar experience you've been looking for*. Though you won't be able to stream your favorite Spotify playlist, the clacking of the gated shifter and the purr from the after-market STāSIS exhaust** (look it up if you're not familiar!) is the only soundtrack you'll need. *For fans of the original Iron Man movie, this is the same spec car as Tony Stark's R8 (minus the powder-coated wheels) **The STāSIS exhaust tune adds an additional ~50 hp to the vehicle's stock 420 horsepower. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE RENTING: If you are not proficient with a manual transmission, this may not be the car for you. Be prepared to answer a few questions about your prior experience before you're approved to drive. I always go through a brief verification before approving a rental, so please leave a phone number where I can reach you to discuss or feel free to write/call me with questions or concerns about the car prior to booking. I want as many people to have the opportunity to experience the R8 as possible; ensuring folks are confident and proficient behind the wheel will help it stay in great condition for other renters! This car is equipped with Bouncie for GPS monitoring and telemetry. While I'm not watching rental trips, I do rely on this information if any issues arise (excessive speeding, hard braking, etc.) Please do not try to remove this device, charges could apply. Please let me know if you have any concerns. This car is equipped with an EZ Pass for convenience. All toll charges will be invoiced shortly after the trip is complete.

Guidelines

The first thing to note: the Audi R8 is an expensive car. It's in great condition, and I hope to keep it that way! As a car enthusiast, I want to share the experience of the R8 with other like-minded drivers and the following guidelines are intended to maintain the vehicle's condition so everyone can enjoy it. Please treat the car as if it were your own. I expect you to have fun (it's a supercar after all!) but please do not take any unnecessary risks. NO SMOKING Do not smoke in the car. Please kindly do not bring any cigarettes, cigars, or marijuana inside the car. Any smell of this sort will be in violation of the policy. NO FOOD No food in the car please, let's try to maintain the new car smell and avoid any spills. Cleaning charges will apply. NO PETS Pets are not allowed in the car. SEATS The seats in the R8 are rather delicate as they're almost 13 years old. Please do not place any items on the seats or dashboard. Kindly place objects you are carrying with you in the trunk or on the floor mats. RE-FUELING Only use 93 Premium Octane Fuel. Please upload a picture of your refuel receipt before you return the car. You must refuel before returning or charges will apply. Nearest Gas Station: Shell Gas Station 239 Monsignor O'Brien Highway, Cambridge, MA 02141 *WINTER RENTALS Please make sure no ice/snow gets inside the vehicle. If any snow or ice builds up on the exterior of the vehicle you must remove it before returning (Do not scratch the car). Please park in a garage to avoid snow buildup. CLEANING Before returning, please pick up after yourself. WHEELS & TIRES Please kindly be careful when approaching any curbs or potholes. The R8's low-profile tires leave the rims exposed to edges. Though the car is fitted with parking sensors (please use if entering a parking garage), be mindful of your space when pulling in/out of parking spots or taking tight corners.

Faqs

  • Why are you so strict about arrival time?

    One of the biggest operating costs as a Turo host is meeting with renters. Renters that don't arrive on time or return late incur an extra cost for me in the form of time. I want to rent to everyone. As a commitment to the rental experience, I pride myself on being on time and I expect the same courtesy in return from renters. By insisting on promptness, I ensure that I'm working with good people that are courteous of others. In return, you get a clean, well-maintained car, promptly at your scheduled pickup time.

Travis and Dylan are rockstar hosts. Great communication, easy to deal with, and extremely knowledgeable about the R8. The car is extremely clean and well-maintained, and made for a great weekend trip up the north shore. Pick up and drop off were convenient/easy, and Travis and Dylan are genuinely good guys. Don’t overthink it - book the R8 and go!
