The Car

Super Car. You think Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, but no one really think's Audi. Well they should! This is the car, that is an everyday super car and it's an important one in history for me. 

I drove the first V10 R8 back when it was first released in 2009 and was so impressed that it became one of my all-time favourites. On the outside, granted it's a bit sedate, but I like to think of the Wolf in Sheep’s clothing scenario. 

Now: the everyday super car, people look and instead of a smile, in this country people scowl. The cardigan wearing middle age Dacia Sandero driving 'finger pointer'! Imagine, you’re at the local petrol station in your R8 and remember this is Britain, so the bloke invariably says, “I bet you don’t get many miles to the gallon out of that.” Or “I can get more in the boot of my Dacia Sandero”, or — and this is the one I’ve always hated most of all — “Where the hell can you ever drive a car like that?” Instead of being rude, we smile sweetly and try our hardest not to put the nozzle down his trousers and set him on fire.

He is quite right, though. You can’t really open up a supercar these days because the bitter and twisted, mealy-mouthed Dacia-driving, caravan and cycling enthusiasts have taken over the town halls and set speed limits at 10 mph, because they can!

Which brings us back to our friend in the cardigan-and-Dacia combination and his question: “What’s the point of a 1,000-brake horsepower, mid-engined, fire-breathing rip-snorter when you are forced to travel at the same speed as a dog or a rabbit?”

He's missing the point and so is everyone that overlooks this car and considers it a 2nd rate Gallardo! 
The Audi R8 V10 Plus is........well it's fast! Powerful, sounds incredible and it puts a big smile on your face. As all its major rivals move towards turbocharging, Audi is clinging on to that big 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 like the crazy-seeming guy that we all hope will turn out to be right at the end of the movie. If you want an epic wall of torque and the thumping BPM spike that can deliver, go ahead to the AMG GT showroom or the 911 Turbo S dealer. But if you want instant throttle response, a multi-vocal thrash metal symphony and the thrill of chasing the dragon all the way to the 8,250rpm power peak then the R8 V10 Plus deserves your attention.

Come and try my number one choice!

My son had a Junior experience in the Audi R8 V10 + with Barry he was a great instructor fully recommended very helpfully and made my sons day 10/10 for Barry ????????????????


I was due to drive the mobile bat at Abingdon on the 16th July. Alan took me over and sat me in the car. Unfortunately it would not start after many tries and a mechanic also having a go! I can’t tell you what a top bloke Alan was! What a geezer! He immediately took me over to the awning and told the young lady doing the bookings what had happened and I’d been waiting all day (it was actually about an hour and a half!) and next thing I knew I was sat in a bright orange audi R8 V10 plus! Unbelievable! After the disappointment of the Batmobile this was amazing! But to be honest Alan made up for it anyway, can’t thank him enough! Proper banter and a proper geezer! Thanks Alan, Damion ????????????

What a day! My 10 year old son had the best days experience driving 3 amazing cars at Abingdon airfield. The best for him was the Auid R8 V10 Plus (thanks to Seren for her help with this at the driver check in desk) Recommend this for anyone who has children that are car enthusiasts - it was a great afternoon and very well organised. Will be back for more!

Thanks for making my sons birthday :)

Just returned from a day with my son and grandson at Tibenham, Norfolk. Grandson's 10th birthday present and he had a brilliant day. His 4 rides ended up being 7 with offers on the day and by the amazing staff making him feel really special. Son had been before so knew what to expect. I wasn't quite sure but, like Grandson, I had a great day with my 2 booked rides turning into 4 with on-the-spot offers. My booked cars got cancelled due to engine problems but I was quickly re-assigned others and upgraded at no extra cost. Real top class customer service by all Staff, especially from Shane

Fantastic experience. Instructors polite, helpful and fun for every car I drove.

Booked a surprise driving experience for our 14 year old son. He absolutely loved it!! Although the weather was awful, the whole experience was made fantastic by the Car Chase Heroes Team, from the booking in members, co-ordintors to the driving instructors. A very well organised event and well worth the money! Would definitely book again and whole heatedly recommend!

Purchased junior experience at Three Sisters Circuit, Wigan, for my grandson, Luka, aged 11, on 16/11/2019. It was a surprise and he did not know about this until we arrived at the venue. He was supposed to drive the Lamborghini Spyder, but it was not available so he chose the R8 V10. It was very cold on the day and because they were very busy, had to hang around for a very long time. Time given for driving was 2 pm (after introductory talk) but it was much later, even though the car chosen was parked up, not moving. Grandson was getting bored and asked me if the car he had now chosen was also broken down as he was getting disappointed that it was taking such a long time. However, after driving this car, my grandson was very happy. We purchased the video, even though it seemed a bit on the pricey side, but as it was a surprise and to see the expression on his face, was well worth it. Would have been the icing on the cake, if some kind of certificate was given with his details and picture of car driven. Thanks to Car Chase Heroes.

Great afternoon at Three Sisters Friday 11/10/19. Christmas present booked, to drive GTR & Lamborghini Spyder added McLaren. GTR & Spyder weren't running & offered upgrade without charge, no issue with that. Decided on Audi R8 V10 & Speed Mustang. Turned out to be a great choice. Thoroughly enjoyable experience - brilliant. Added extra laps for the R8 & McLaren, well worth it. Extremely well organised, friendly, knowledgeable and encouraging instructors. Could not have been better. Second time with Car Chase Heroes and was not disappointed. Looking forward to next time.

Had a fantastic day at Abingdon on Saturday. Came to drive my dream car the R8 V8 which was an absolutely amazing. Chantelle was a brilliant instructor, encouraging me to push the car to my best. Then after talking to another instructor who advised that the R8 V10+ was THE ONE to drive, had an 3 laps in it. And can only say IT'S AWESOME. The acceleration pushes you back into the seat and the handling on the high speed corners was incredible. Thanks for the advice mate. Cannot praise the whole team at Car Chase Heroes enough. Thanks for an wonderful experience.

This car was fantastic to drive. I added it as an extra car for my 2 cars package. This was my first car to drive at Castle Combe circuit. It was raining when I drove this car, and as it was my first car I didn't drive it crazy fast, but fast enough for the coditions. It was awesome to drive this car. The interior of this car was very modern. LCD speedometer, the start button on the steering wheel. It is right hand drive and automatic,so didn't need to bother with the gear changes. The instructor was also very good. Thank you Car Chase Heroes for this unforgettable experience.
