Earlier this month, the R8 made its debut on U.S. soil and was put on display at the new Audi Forum on Park Avenue in Manhattan. This Monday, Audi will be removing the R8 from display, and we may not get another chance to see the R8 in the real until the car's Los Angeles Auto Show debut. Do not lose hope yet, Audi fans, because Fourtitude has been given the opportunity to influence Audi and bring the R8 back for another event before it's shipped out of sight. After the R8 is used for corporate events this week, Audi has tasked the Audi-obsessed website with coming up with at least fifty guests who will commit to attending a special encore event on Saturday, October 28th from 3-5 PM EST.
It's amazing that Audi is providing this opportunity to Fourtitude readers (and the general public), and you can find out more about how to RSVP at the Read link. Those who can't make the October 28th engagement will have to wait until the L.A. Auto Show in December to see the R8 in person.

      I just went over to the Audi Forum after reading this thinking I might have missed it. As of Monday at noon it's still there, and the employees say it will be there until the Fortitude event on Saturday. It's worth a stop in if you are in the neighborhood (there's a Ferrari place further up Park Ave. too).

      I would be suprised if it did not make an appearance at SEMA this year?

      I would say more people attend that event then NAIAS or LAAS.

      Still amazing.

      Enough R8, ok?
      I dont want this car anymore. Autoblog killed it.
      The Mustang is overdone, I give you that. But there is too much R8 info here. There is nothing special about this car. Its an amalgamation of parts from the volkswagen empire. Lets move on people.

      It's all autoblog until we get our dose of Audi. Then it becomes Audiblog. Every day there is a commercial for Audi. This company sells very few cars relative to most car companies and yet they a disproportionate amount of attention. You get what you pay for, I guess. I would just like to know what they pay a month to get this useless info in front of us.

      I saw it at the NAIAS too - and i never liked it then, and I still don't like it now - the rear taillights really kill if for me

      considering the Alfa C8 coupe is just world better looking than this and that it will be a proper RWD and have more power for the same money.

      the Alfa C8 coupe does not look as good as the R8.. it looks like a stupid corvette

      The R8 is basically a gallardo lamborghini with a little less power... though theres supposed to be a v10 version of the R8 being made.. and roadster..
