Default Trade my 2017 R8 V10 Plus for your 2016 RS?

So I have this crazy idea...would anyone be interested in trading their low miles (under 10k) 2016 GT3 RS for my brand new 2017 R8 V10 Plus with ~300 miles on the ODO? I had a 997 GT3 prior to the R8 and I think the 911 itch is hitting me again. Would a straight swap be possible?

Realistically if someone was to be interested, you would be looking at parting with $30 - $40,000 on top of the R8. Possibly more.

Plenty of RS's on dealer lots. I'm certain they would make that trade along with some cash....I would bet good money there's not a single person, or dealer, that would do that trade straight up.....

It only took ~300 miles??? That is like a Tyson fight in his early days.

Straight swap for a 991.2 GT3 might be possible.
A GT3RS? Not likely. Unless the R8 had $40k in the trunk.

Yep. There's a brand new 2017 R8 V10 Plus at a local dealership for $30k off... http://www.audiflatirons.com/new/Aud...845b137e61.htm

However, $173k is almost exactly the MSRP of my GT3 after delivery and gas guzzler. Seems like it would be a straight trade for a well-optioned .2 GT3 but for a .1 RS you're spot on. Stick $40k in the trunk.

With the ADM's going around and high MSRP cars I don't even think that would be possible

Yeah, and the R8's value will continue to drop even faster than the .2 GT3 ADMs evaporate.

If you are certain you are done w the R8 just take the pain now and get out of it for the hit, unfortunately.

Wow!!!!. It looks like the new R8s and NSXs cars' not doing so well. Just a very crowded field in the $175,000 - $220,000 range with also a boat load of low mileage 458s. And- all the low mileage RSs, as well

NSX is a total failure because old nsx fans wanted Mid N/A engined lightweight RWD car. Instead they give us AWD, Hybrid, Turbocharged crap that isn't even fast around tracks with acura badge. No thank you.

Yea it's a total disaster for dealers sitting on those cars. Curious to know how many they sold last calendar year

Do not disagree. I also think it looks like the R8 and has that Acura front wedge

Agreed. I have only seen one on the road. Not sure who would buy it. Probably one of the worst sports cars over 100k out.

It's Nardo Gray.


I looked on autotrader and noticed a few from as low as $208k to $215k for cars with less than 10k miles so this is why I assume it's possible as those are asking. MSRP for my R8 was $206k. I think adding $30k on top would be for cars with under 5k miles.
