We Can Insure Your Audi R8
First introduced at the 2006 Paris Auto Show, Audi’s flagship R8 supercar bursts onto the automotive scene as an instant hit, dominating the market and becoming one of the world’s premium automotive brands. From racetrack triumphs to everyday streetcar performance, this beautiful piece of German engineering continues to inspire new fans.
The Four Audi Rings
We all recognize the legendary Audi emblem of the four rings as a symbol of automotive brilliance. Do you know what each ring represents for the company? Together, they stand for its German ancestry. The first ring calls out Audi; the second, Horch -founded by August Horch; the third, DKW -Dampf-Kraft-Wagen; and the fourth, Wanderer-Werke AG aka Wanderer. All are the manufacturers of Auto Union.
Setting the Stage of a Legend
Auto Union’s Silver Arrows dominate the Grand Prix landscape in the 1930’s. Even by today’s standards the C- and D-Type models are considered mechanical wonders. Even with the ocean of time separating them, the Audi R8 owes much of its DNA to these mechanical wonders.
Surviving the Fallout of War
World War II sees the near-destruction of Auto Union. Under the DKW name, Audi survives for two decades building small, affordable two-stroke engine family vehicles. It’s not until 1964 that Volkswagen AG acquires the brands and a revival begins. The recovery is slow and steady, while the Audi Quattro establishes itself in rally racing. Audi finally reaches the level of dominance at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, winning 13 times from 2000 to 2014.
A Tip of the Hat to Lamborghini
The tides turn in 1998 with Volkswagen’s acquisition of Lamborghini. At the time, the famed supercar manufacturer relies on the sports car Murcielago, named after a Spanish fighting bull to honor Ferruccio Lamborghini’s passion for bullfighting. At the time, smaller Gallardo is secretly in the works. Also named in honor of bullfighting (gallardo is the name of a famous breed of Spanish bulls), the Gallardo platform serves as the base for the R8, in conjunction with the earlier technology of the Silver Arrows decades before. Full production begins in 2006 with the R8 name coming from the Le Mans-winning prototype.
High Performance in Its Blood
The R8 continues to evolve. In 2008, Audi introduces a V10 FSI engine producing 532hp with 391 lb-ft of torque. A soft-top version arrives in 2009, first as a 5.2 TSI Quattro and then as a 4.2 FSI Quattro. The beauty of the Audi R8 is in its perfect execution, melding a showcase supercar with the rich DNA resulting from victory at three of the most important racing series in the world – the pre-war Grand Prix, Group B and Le Mans. It all spells pedigree with a capital “P.”

When you own a storied sports car like an Audi R8, you want to protect it. At Classic Auto Insurance, we get that and can help you find the perfect coverage. We offer customizable policies that are not just a one size fits all. Our Audi R8 insurance plans are tailored to each individual customer and vehicle to fit your needs.
Agreed Value Not Stated Value
At Classic Auto Insurance, we offer you Agreed Value coverage on your Audi R8.

In the event your Audi R8 is totaled in a covered loss, you will receive the exact agreed-upon value on your policy minus your deductible.
Flexible Plans and Rollover Miles
Choose from one of our three mileage plans -1,000, 3,000 or 6,000 miles- to tailor your Audi R8 insurance policy to your needs. Say for example your plans for attending an Audi car show never come together. No problem – Classic Auto Insurance offers rollover miles from one year’s policy to the next. We understand plans change and we don’t feel you should lose miles just because you didn’t use them.
Classic Auto Insurance – Affordable Rates for Your Peace of Mind
In addition to Agreed Value, our “Inflation Guard” provides an automatic increase in vehicle coverage every quarter, throughout the policy term, so you don’t have to worry your Audi R8 may be underinsured. This is just another way we offer peace of mind to Classic Auto customers.
