This is the Audi emblem from the front of the 2011 Audi R8 V10 Spyder. I saw this car in the Liverpool garage and it was behind security rope but after spending about an hour going around all of the cars and admiring them from pretty much ever angle, the lady on the desk kindly let me go under the ropes and get some close up photographs.
This is probably my favourite shot of the R8 from the day, just because it feels real.
I will need to explain that…
Basically when you think of a super car you think of something like a Lamborghini or Ferrari which usually needs that whole car to be in the photograph for you to feel the essence of it, the R8 doesn’t need that. You see a studio shot of a Ferrari and you think “Oh I am never going to be able to have that” but with the R8 you just need to see the Audi emblem on that gently swooping bonnet and it feels real. It feels like you can actually own it. It feels like it can become a part of you and your life.
