Downtown Golden

Longtime friends and now owners/partners, Brandon Bortles and Barry Dobesh-the B’s, as they are branded together–chose the name Abejas to convey the meaning behind the bee. Bees are industrious little bastards that symbolize agriculture, nature, and the fresh provisional menu behind Abejas. Abejas is a homecoming for the owners. The owner-duo met in Golden and both have deep roots in this small town. After Barry graduated from the Colorado Art Institute’s culinary program in 2002, he and Brandon became colleagues at the Hilltop Café in Golden. Barry next spent time working in Chicago, while Brandon moved on to manage New York restaurants. They rejoined in Denver in 2007 and started forming their dream to provide Golden with an intimate, seasonal restaurant, fit for a causal glass of wine with friends as much as for the celebration of a special occasion.








One of the best, if not THE best roof top bars/restaurant in Downtown Denver. We love their small plates "tapas" menu, brought to you by an award winning Chef. They have an incredible craft cocktail menu, great beer and wine list. Oh did we mention THE MOST EPIC view of the Denver Skyline. LoHi is the home to dozens and dozens of hot trendy shops, restaurants and bars. It's a great walking neighborhood. Save some room for Desert and check out Little Man Ice Cream (ENORMOUS Building shaped like an old fashion Ice Cream can)!





Technically, the name refers to the kitchen’s focus on oak wood-fired cooking. But it’s pretty fitting for a place that stands so tall and mighty among Denver’s top-tier destinations -- and that just keeps growing on you with every visit. At first glance, chef-partner Steven Redzikowski’s seasonal repertoire doesn’t seem so wildly different from that of countless other contemporary kitchens: you've got your pork belly, your short ribs, and your handmade gnocchi. But the distinction’s in the details: that gnocchi, for instance, sports a startling combination of butternut squash, chanterelles, and lemon confit in creamy onion sauce. And the cocktails are smarter than you are.

*** If you are headed to Boulder, try their sister restaurant Oak at Fourteenth. Very similar menu, My favorite spot in Boulder!



Washington Park West

From the cool-toned, streamlined decor, to the suave service and the painterly compositions on your plate, dining at chef-owner Olav Peterson’s hidden-in-plain-sight neighborhood gem is like visiting a modern art gallery. Only instead of pretending to appreciate how an all-white canvas represents the decline of civilization, you can actually appreciate silken fresh pastas, salads like tiny flowering gardens, and the revelation that is properly cooked roast chicken, washed down with a beer from Estonia or Spain that you’ve never tried .


Beatrice and Woodsly


Between the wilderness of the forest and the solitude of the city, Beatrice & Woodsley brings the Colorado wilderness into Denver’s heart to celebrate the history of restaurants as places of restoration, replenishment, and relaxation. Nestled amidst an urban aspen grove, Beatrice and Woodsley offers social dining with a seasonally influenced Rustic-American menu. With cuisine that pays homage to the melting-pot of recipes and methods from the formation of the American culture, the restaurant playfully combines today’s palettes with the traditions and flavors of the old world. Simple ingredients, carefully executed techniques, and adventurous imaginations combine to provide a one-of-a-kind dining experience.


Central Bistro & Bar


Central had always been good, sometimes very good. But when Chef Matt Selby took over the kitchen, it instantly developed a new depth of character. Though a vet, he’s still got the enthusiasm of a newbie, and it shows in everything from elaborate foie gras preparations and earthy soups, to the way he squeezes flavor out of the humblest vegetables. And he’s not the only one having fun: the talented bar crew’s always doing something new, the servers think on their feet like an improv group, and you’d have to be wallowing in Morrissey-grade misery to resist going with the flow.


ChoLon Modern Asian Bistro


If Denver had its own USDA food pyramid, Lon Symensma’s kaya toast and French onion soup dumplings would occupy an entire row. But since a balanced diet unfortunately consists of other things too, Symensma's Asian-fusion flagship offers up one spectacular, almost-too-pretty-to-eat plate after the next. Along with gourmet twists on old-school classics like chow fun and fried rice, look for artful specials like Dungeness crab shumai with tarragon-avocado cream, or Wagyu ribeye over leek-green raisin purée and black-bean gremolata. Meanwhile, we’re almost positive the bar’s exotic seasonal cocktails meet all of your daily fruit requirements.


Guard & Grace

Central Business District

When a chef celebrated for his globe-spanning imagination announces he’s opening a straight-up beef barn in a Downtown office tower, you’d be smart to smell a cash grab in the making. But you can be smart and wrong -- and in Troy Guard’s case, you would be. His steakhouse combines all the glitter and polish of your average Financial District destination with what feels like a genuine desire to please on the part of the entire detail-oriented staff. The result is relaxing yet exciting, comfy yet sexy, from the first bite of venison tartare through the wine-paired filet mignon flight, and the last crumb of cake from pastry talent Ryan Walker.



Platt Park

For 30 years and counting, Sushi Den has been the first and last word in raw fish around here, and its next-door sibling Izakaya Den introduced the concept of the Japanese tavern to Denver while scaling it up with slick decor and fusion twists. Now, in a warm, rustic, copper-toned nook across the street, the Kizaki brothers are putting their stamp on robatayaki and other traditional drinking foods, the simplicity of which showcases their fierce commitment to quality and proper technique as much as sashimi does: think monkfish fried karaage-style, melt-in-your-mouth grilled salmon collar, or funky skewers of chicken hearts and gizzards. (Before you balk at offal, remember you once scoffed at sushi too. That was dumb.)


Central Business District

If a city could have a restaurant for a girlfriend, this modern Italian fixture in the Hotel Monaco would be ours, because we constantly take it for granted. Year after year, week after week, from dawn to dark, Chef Elise Wiggins and her team put their egos on the back burner and their hearts on the line to make killer bread and pasta from scratch, nail classics like veal scallopini and brunch time strata, whip up elegant specials, design gluten-free alternatives, host a daily happy hour and pig roasts on the weekend, and basically take such good care of us that we really should remember to bring them flowers and candy next time.


Rebel Restaurant


Rooster-shaped ceramic pitchers and skull wallpaper, wooden planters full of herbs and Slayer graffiti, all coming together in a dusty old brick building that used to house a dive bar: this place is as metal as farm-to-table gets. And that goes double for the menu; it's as dynamic and downright ballsy as any Denver’s ever seen. While the signature whole roasted pig’s or lamb’s head warrants all the hype it’s generating, there isn’t a dish that doesn’t change whatever game it’s playing, from s**t on a shingle gone glam with brioche and walnuts in wine sauce, to a twist on poutine featuring fried tripe and foie gras gravy. The beer, wine, and cocktail lists are thrill-filled too.


Stoic & Genuine


Rioja’s a pioneer (and better than ever). Bistro Vendôme’s a classic. Euclid Hall’s a pure blast. But Jennifer Jasinski and Beth Gruitch’s dazzling, buzzing seafood smash hit in Union Station already feels like a legit icon -- a Grand Central Oyster Bar for Mile High cool kids. After all, Chef Jorel Pierce is a cool kid himself, so while oysters on the half-shell and lobster rolls are forever, ever-changing originals like octopus mortadella, tuna tartare in chai vinaigrette with maple giardiniera, and live uni with lychee shaved ice from Stoic’s dedicated granita bar are really where it’s at, followed by freaking foie gras crème brûlée with fried rosemary.


Table 6

Cherry Creek Country Club

Considering owner-sommelier Aaron Forman’s an ex-dog musher, the fact that a meal at this consummate neighborhood bistro remains full of surprises after a decade-plus shouldn’t itself come as any surprise. Chef Michael Winston takes the trademark playfulness of its New American menu seriously, which means at any given time you might get kimchi-Brie crepes, or yam kugel with the signature duck confit, or knock back some tater tots in fondue while you’re waiting for a foie gras tart with creamed spinach and pickled mushrooms. And the wine list’s still the vinous equivalent of the Iditarod: wide-ranging and racy.


To the Wind Bistro

City Park

In a barely there East Colfax storefront, Royce Oliveira, Leanne Adamson, and their tiny crew serve up a slice of the good life with such intelligence, skill, and verve that, immensely satisfying as it is, you can’t get enough. Not so much a restaurant with an open kitchen as a kitchen surrounded by some tables and chairs, the twinkling two-room space sets a casually intimate mood enhanced by the chance to interact with the easygoing Oliveira while he’s cooking -- and whatever’s he’s cooking, you’ll want it, be it perfectly pan-fried whiting with crème fraîche, rye croutons and golden raisins, or luscious chicken and dumplings in mussel broth.


The Squeaky Bean


Since the first incarnation of the Bean opened in 2009, this restaurant’s gone through its fair share of changes including a relaunch in a new location in 2012. Recently though, it’s hit a peak with a focus on food that’s not only farm fresh (sourced largely from their own Bean Acres), but fun too. From weekend bingo brunch to the penchant for creating cocktails for recently deceased celebrities, there’s enough kitsch to keep you entertained. But it’s the food, like its much-lauded lunch burger and its unexpectedly elegant dinner entrees, that makes the Bean a must-visit. 


Work & Class


“Hey, wanna go eat in a shipping container?” A few years ago, that may have seemed like a silly question, but this small (but mighty) restaurant has become a fast favorite landing on basically every “best of” list since it opened in early 2014. And now it’s earned a place on this list, too thanks to a new fall menu that includes comforting, yet flavor-packed classics like whiskey & Coke beef brisket and Wisconsin cheddar mac & cheese.


The Populist


Though it’s relatively new (it opened in 2012), The Populist somehow always feels like a classic. That’s not to say it’s not on trend: locally sourced ingredients, check; community tables, check; hip location in the hottest neighborhood, check. But while this restaurant is undeniably stylish, it’s also just damn delicious. So even though there are new options opening up in Denver every week, we’re sure you’ll regret it if you don’t stop in soon for its deceptively simple monikered bacon & egg or its newest seasonal take on agnolotti.


Old Major


Old Major Executive Chef and owner Justin Brunson is undeniably the king of meat in Denver. He’s opened Masterpiece Deli, launched the Denver Bacon Company, and recently took on the fast-casual trend with Honor Society. But it’s Old Major that remains a can’t-miss thanks to its in-house butchery and charcuterie programs, as well as a consistent ability to turn out perfected plates. Whether it’s the famous nose-to-tail platter or a delicate, flaky cheddar biscuit, you need this. Now.


Beast + Bottle


Relationships can be a lot of work, right? But (usually) you’re only involved in one at a time. At Beast + Bottle, though, there are countless relationships being managed all of the time. From the local purveyors who supply the restaurant with an ever-changing lineup of fresh ingredients to the diners who are each treated to a dose of old-school hospitality on every visit, everything is orchestrated flawlessly by the team of Paul and Aileen Reilly, who have yet another kind of relationship: they’re brother and sister.


Mercantile Dining & Provision

Union Station

Though Chef Alex Siedel’s Fruition is a perennial Mile High favorite, it’s this more recent endeavor from him that’s currently got our attention. As part of the redesign of Union Station, it’s got that shiny and new appeal. But beyond the hype are creative dishes that elevate fresh ingredients. Mercantile’s fall menu, which includes dishes like a celery root tortellini with confit veal sweetbreads, crispy Brussels sprouts, and pickled mustard seed vinaigrette, is out now. So what are you waiting for?


The Plimoth

City Park North

This restaurant touts a qualifier after its name: “neighborhood eatery.” If only all neighborhoods had a place like this. But no matter where you live in Denver, don’t wait to dine here. The menu changes constantly, offering up new takes on ingredients each time you visit. This season, expect to see plenty of squash, apples, and pears featured in dishes like the fall shelling bean ragout with delicata squash, charred autumn vegetables persillade, boutique sherry, and Schnebelhorn cheese.



Capitol Hill

Restaurateur Frank Bonanno has made a big impact on the Denver dining scene with his mini-empire that includes the always impeccable Mizuna. But over at Bones, his Asian noodle house headed up by Executive Chef John Dipierro, a passion for experimentation has us salivating. Head there on a Wednesday for its steamed buns special and you’ll be treated to a unique creation that changes weekly as the team plays with new flavor combinations. Or go anytime for a piping-hot bowl of noodles like the new-for-fall option with crispy chicken skin, charred chile charmoula, corn, wakame, and oyster mushroom sauce.

*Also check out Luca De'Italia - Next door to Bones & Another John Dipierro creation, My favorite Italian restuaunt in Denver. Everything he touches is GOLD! He does not pay me to say that either!!! I love his entire foodie empire!



City Park West

Denver’s got plenty of places where you can score a quick bite with your morning brew or, on the other end of the spectrum, a nap-inducing gorge-fest of a brunch. But we love Onefold right now because it hits that sweet spot in between. Yes, it's got the requisite breakfast burrito. But it's more about what’s inside the house-made tortilla (like the duck fat fried potatoes) than how big it is. And you’ll find more than the usual suspects here too, like the ultra-comforting congee, a savory rice porridge that’s popular in Asian countries.




Another place that’s proving that a small space can produce big flavors is this pizza and oysters mecca. With only a handful of tables, a 1,000-degree wood-fired oven, and a knack for turning something simple into something memorable, Cart-Driver is anything but just another pizza joint. And though Chef Kelly Whitaker is well-versed in Italian techniques (you only need to have visited his Boulder pizzeria Basta once to know that), he’s also committed to using local ingredients whenever possible. The result: food that will have you coming back no matter the season.

There is a great out door walking, shopping and entertainers on Pearl Street in Boulder. Boulder is 45 minutes from downtown Denver.

Stranahan's Whiskey Distillery Tour

This whiskey glowed amber from the start. When volunteer firefighter Jess Graber responded to a neighbor's barn fire down the road, he never imagined any good could come of it. But the barn he made effort to save belonged to George Stranahan, long-time liquor connoisseur. When the fire settled, the two discovered a shared passion for the Colorado outdoors and a good pour of fine whiskey.

And so Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey was born. They developed a recipe for the smoothest, most flavorful whiskey in the world using the purity of their mountain surroundings to their advantage. Well, to your advantage. They say from each thing bad comes something good. For Jess, George, and fine whiskey drinkers alike, it's amazing just how good it can be.


Marijuana Dispensaries (THEY ARE EVERYWHERE!)

The law regarding marijuana in Colorado allows for cities and counties to decide for themselves if they will permit recreational stores. If you are planning your vacation to Colorado, we would recommend supporting the cities and counties that respect your right to marijuana.

The experience is similar to a liquor store. You must present photo identification in order to check out and purchase Marijuana products. Recreational marijuana stores are open for business. Anyone 21 years of age or older is allowed to possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana in Colorado. This is your right as defined by the Colorado Constitution, whether or not the city or county allows or bans recreational stores. We now have thousands of independent and chain dispensary locations throughout Colorado. Let's face it Pot is everywhere in this state. We just ask that you partake in the festivities AFTER you drive with us!

* You would think this is obvious but for legal reasons, we have to bring it to your attention... Consumption of Drugs or Alcohol prior to your driving tour is not permitted. We do reserve the right to cancel your tour without a refund if we find you have consumed any substance that would impair your ability to drive.



How Fisker Blew $1.4 Billion And Lost $35,000 On Each Car




Article courtesy of: Jalopnik

Members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee today took turns alternately hammering or defending the U.S. Department of… Read…

Just how bad were things at Fisker before they ceased production, laid off their staff and got hauled before Congress over all the money they borrowed? Much worse than you might have imagined, according to a new special report from Reuters.


Here's a nice warm thought in case you're an American who filed your taxes recently: soon-t0-be-failed luxury hybrid manufacturer Fisker… Read…

The story from Reuters' Deepa Seetharaman and Paul Lienert goes rather deeply into the company's sad state of affairs. It seems that things began to collapse for Fisker right around the time the U.S. Department of Energy cut them off from further loan money in June 2011.


Fisker had been approved for a $529 million line of credit, but "only" drew down about $192 million.


However, the private investors who put $525 million into the company were not told about this, and instead were reassured with "rosy sales forecasts and assurances the company valued itself at nearly $2 billion," according to the story.


All in all, Fisker never turned a profit and burned through $1.4 billion in private and public funding since its founding in 2007.


The story goes into the engineering problems that plagued the luxury hybrid Karma, apparently out of a desire to stay close to Henrik Fisker's unorthodox design, bad production and ordering practices, poor communication and payment to suppliers, and, it would seem, no clue how to actually make money on a product:


Fisker built an estimated 2,450 Karmas from 2011 to 2012, but lost at least $35,000 on each car, according to internal financial statements and interviews with former Fisker executives. One former executive said the Karma "cost far more to produce than we could ever charge for it."


One has to wonder how Fisker planned to stay afloat with that model besides constant influxes of new cash from investors and the government. Things weren't helped by Hurricane Sandy, which put Fisker out $30 million, or the bankruptcy of their battery supplier A123 Systems.


Fisker Lost $30 Million Worth Of Cars In Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy had absolutely devastating effects on the Northeast last week. And as we exclusively told you, that included a fire that destroyed 16 … Read…

Battery Maker That Received $249 Million From Obama Administration Declares Bankruptcy

A123 Systems, the company that builds the batteries for the Fisker Karma and for the upcoming Chevy Spark EV, has filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy… Read…


Not everyone saw potential in the company: one investor who declined to put money into Fisker called the Karma "a rudimentary machine that needed several years of engineering refinement." Ouch.


There were other questionable decisions made too, like inflated salaries for Henrik Fisker and other executives and fancy parties in Monaco even when layoffs were taking place. (Shocking, I know.)


What's really interesting about the Reuters story — and what's most important to taxpayers like you and me — is that it maintains that "investors and government representatives weren't always hearing the same story" when it came to Fisker's finances.


Henrik Fisker told his shareholders in December 2011 that they were on target to launch the smaller Atlantic sedan in 2013, only to shut down production seven weeks later. Fisker also never told the investors that his company had been cut off from government funds months earlier due to having missed their targets.


But when Fisker was faltering, neither they nor the Energy Department bothered to tell anyone.


Neither the Energy Department nor Fisker made that news public until February 2012, when Fisker told reporters that it was "renegotiating" terms of the loan. The department that same month said that it "only allows the loan to be disbursed as the company meets certain milestones and demonstrates results."


Besides Fisker's obvious mismanagement and lack of a clue how run a car company, that last part is what bothered me most. Why didn't we know that Fisker was flagging after taxpayer dollars were invested in the company? Was it a desire to keep Fisker from turning into the next Solyndra, which in the eyes of critics of the Obama administration, it did anyway?



56% Of Carmakers Who Asked For Government 'Green' Loans Are Dead

What do Carbon Motors' BMW-powered police car, Aptera Motors' electric three wheeler, and Fisker's luxury sedan have in common? Two… Read…

If we've seen anything from the green startup automakers who sought Energy Department loans, it is very, very hard to get a new car company off the ground, let alone make it profitable using new technology. But based on what this story has to say about the way Fisker was run, I have to wonder why they got any money in the first plac

From the article: Exotic Car Rentals
It can cost several hundred - even several thousand - dollars a day to rent an exotic car, but that's a pittance compared to buying one. Renting an exotic car or luxury car can be a fun perk on a work trip, a special-occasion splurge, or an extended test drive before committing to a six-figure price tag. Have you taken your turn in a rented Ferrari or Rolls? Was it worth the cash to live the life for a week, or did you grumble every time you had to hit the gas station? Tells us all about it -- the good, the bad, and the wicked fast.


Worth every penny and in miami the best prices are at dynasty luxury rental i shoped around and they had the best price by a lot of diffrence
—Guest Cristian

renting an exotic

when you rent an exotic, don't get stuck eyeballing the price sheet. You came to drive ,so just look see which one makes your heart beat fast and your hands start to sweat. Are you still thinking about the cost? Understand money is a tool to be used for life changing experiences.

Worth every penny if you get a deal like the one I got from i95 Exotics. they gave me a lamborghini for 3 days for $1900. that is the lowest price i have seen. check their website
—Guest sami

Yes, it IS worth it!

Once you get behind the wheel of a Lamborghini and take it up to speed on the highway, you realize, you would have paid even MORE to rent it! I was so white knuckled the first few miles - The reaction from people on the highway was priceless. I really did feel like a Hollywood mega star! When I stopped to get a cup of coffee, I was literally shaking because of the adrenaline rush! A flock of people surrounded me and the car asking question after question! This was the most fun I've had in a LONG time and I think everyone should spend at least a day in their dream car! Thanks to DFW Elite Auto Rental in Dallas for making my dream come true!

Lamborghini Gallardo


Frank Lamberty (2004)[6]

The Rent a Rent a Audi R8 Exotic Car Rental Exotic Car Rental[4] (Typ 42)[7] is a mid-engine, 2-seater sports car,[4][8] which uses Audi's trademark quattro permanent all-wheel drive system.[4][9] It was introduced by the German automaker Audi AG in 2006.

The car was exclusively designed, developed, and manufactured by Audi AG's high performance private subsidiary company, quattro GmbH, and is based on the Lamborghini Gallardo platform.[10] The fundamental construction of the R8 is based on the Audi Space Frame,[4] and uses an aluminium monocoque which is built using space frame principles. The car is built by quattro GmbH in a newly renovated factory at Audi's 'aluminium site' at Neckarsulm in Germany.[4]

In 2005, Audi announced that the name of the successful Rent a Rent a Audi R8 Exotic Car Rental Exotic Car Rental race car would be used for a new road car in 2007, the Rent a Rent a Audi R8 Exotic Car Rental Exotic Car Rental, based on the Audi Le Mans quattro concept car (designed by Frank Lamberty and Julian Hoenig), appearing at the 2003 International Geneva Motor Show, and 2003 Frankfurt International Motor Show. The R8 development program began in 2004, Lamberty's design being approved and frozen for production. Production body prototypes began field testing in January 2006. The R8 road car was officially launched at the Paris Auto Show on 30 September 2006. There was some confusion with the name, which the car shares with the 24 Hours of Le Mans winning R8 Le Mans Prototype (LMP). 6-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Jacky Ickx described the R8 as "the best handling road car today".[11][12][13]


Initial release

R8 Coupé 4.2 FSI quattro



The Original V8 Coupé

The Rent a Rent a Audi R8 Exotic Car Rental Exotic Car Rental was initially equipped with a 4.2 litre V8 engine. Specifically, it is an all-aluminium alloy 32-valve (four valves per cylinder) petrol engine,[4] utilising Fuel Stratified Injection (FSI),[4] and has a displacement of 4,163 cubic centimetres (254.0 cu in).[4] It develops a motive power output of 420 metric horsepower (309 kW; 414 bhp) (Directive 80/1269/EEC),[4] and generates 430 newton metres (317 lbf·ft) of torque,[4] on 98 RON 'Super Unleaded' petrol. It is basically the same engine used in the Audi B7 RS4, but is modified to use a dry sump lubrication system. This V8 is a highly reworked, high-revving variant of the existing 4.2 litre V8, but includes cylinder-direct fuel injection (Fuel Stratified Injection), and four valves per cylinder, instead of five (as used on the previous non-FSI variants). It also uses two chain-driven double overhead camshafts (DOHC) per cylinder bank, and utilises variable valve timing for both inlet and exhaust camshafts. The 4 wheel drive system is biased towards the rear; it sends 30% of its power to the front wheels and 70% to the rear.

The transmission options are either a Lamborghini sourced six-speed manual gearbox with metal gate for the shift lever, or an Audi-developed R tronic[4] gearbox—which is a semi-automatic, without a traditional clutch pedal with automatic gears shifting mode.[8][14] These options are the same as those available on the Lamborghini Gallardo. A double clutch direct-shift gearbox (DSG), now badged by Audi as S tronic, is not available (as of April 2010).

R8 Spyder 4.2 FSI quattro

On July 1, 2010 Autocar reported that Audi has added the 4.2 FSI V8 engine to the R8 Spyder range. The 434 PS (319 kW; 428 bhp) (up 14 bhp on coupé), 430 newton metres (317 lbf·ft) unit now completes the R8 Spyder range alongside the launch V10 powerplant. It has a 0-62 mph (0–100 km/h) time of 4.8sec and will go on to reach a top speed of 185 mph (299 km/h). The engine is available with Audi's R tronic sequential manual gearbox. Like the V10 model, the V8 Spyder features an aluminium spaceframe with carbon composites and an automatic retractable folding cloth roof.

R8 Coupé 5.2 FSI quattro



The R8 V10 Coupé

Audi AG unveiled the Rent a Rent a Audi R8 Exotic Car Rental Exotic Car Rental V10 on 9 December 2008. It uses a 5.2 litre FSI engine,[4] based on the unit in the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 (which in turn was based on the 5.2 FSI V10 as used in the Audi C6 S6 and Audi D3 S8), but is re-tuned to produce a power output of 532 metric horsepower (391 kW; 525 bhp), and generate 530 newton metres (391 lbf·ft) of torque.[4][5] Compared to the V8 variant, the R8 V10's performance numbers are enhanced. Audi states the new 0 to 100 kilometres per hour (0 to 62.1 mph) time as only 3.9 seconds,[4] 60 to 124 miles per hour (97 to 200 km/h) in 8.1 seconds, and a top speed of 316 kilometres per hour (196.4 mph).[4] Other changes to the V10 version of the R8 include some aesthetic differences: such as all-LED headlights (a world-first),[4] interior enhancements such as Bang & Olufsen 465 watt sound system,[4] and a more aggressive body styling,[15] larger rear brakes and unique roadwheels.[4]

It was initially thought that this version of the R8 was going to have the same engine as the C6 Audi RS6, a 5.0 litre V10 TFSI twin-turbo engine, which produces 580 metric horsepower (427 kW; 572 bhp). However, some components of the twin-turbo system overheated, and one prototype was destroyed by fire at the Nürburgring.[16] This model was shown at the 2009 North American International Auto Show.

R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI quattro (2009-)



The R8 V10 Spyder

Although it was rumoured by the automotive press since the announcement of the production R8 in 2006, it was only in August 2008 that spy shots of a convertible R8 "Spider" from filming scenes of the movie Iron Man 2 were published online. The photos showed a clearly visible "soft-top" roof, and the unique sideblade had been removed.[17] The vehicle was formally unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.[18] Compared with the coupé model, the convertible will have extra chassis support, a pair of roll-over safety bars, as well as minor changes such as the location of the fuel filler. It will be powered by a 5.2 FSI V10 engine.[citation needed]

German model launch began in first quarter of 2010, with sales started in the coming days.[19]

UK model was sold for £111,955 OTR (manual) and £117,155 OTR (R tronic).[20]

Rent a Rent a Audi R8 Exotic Car Rental Exotic Car Rental V12 TDI concept (2008)

It is a concept vehicle version of R8 Coupé with 5,934 cc (5.934 L; 362.1 cu in) V12 twin turbo Diesel engine rated 500 PS (368 kW; 493 hp) and 1,000 N·m (738 lb·ft)@1750-3000rpm with Euro 6 emissions standard compliance via oxidizing catalyst and particulate filter, matt Grace Silver body colour, 6-speed manual transmission with small-diameter double-plate clutch, quattro permanent all-wheel drive, starting ratio of 40:60.

The vehicle was unveiled in Detroit Auto Show 2008.[21]

Rent a Rent a Audi R8 Exotic Car Rental Exotic Car Rental TDI Le Mans (2008)



Rent a Rent a Audi R8 Exotic Car Rental Exotic Car Rental TDI Le Mans

It is a version of Rent a Rent a Audi R8 Exotic Car Rental Exotic Car Rental V12 TDI concept with Brilliant Red body colour, rhombus-pattern cover on the air inlets and outlets, continuous aluminum spoiler lip, glass roof of the passenger compartment with two large transparent sections, glazed engine compartment behind seats, NACA duct in the middle of the roof, optional carbon fiber engine liner, LED headlights with color temperature of 6,000 Kelvin, 365 mm (14.37 in) three-spoke flat bottom diecast magnesium core sport steering wheel upholstered in Valcona leather, larger aluminum applications at around the center console, 24-piston (total) brake calipers (red six-piston monobloc aluminum front calipers, fixed rear calipers), ventilated carbon fiber reinforced silicon carbide ceramic brake discs.

The vehicle was unveiled in 2008 Geneva Motor Show.[22]

The development of R8 TDI vehicles was cancelled, citing the cost of re-engineering the petrol R8 to accommodate the massive twin-turbocharged diesel engine is simply too great, and that it would be unable to recoup its investment through sales alone.[23]

R8 LMS (2009-)



Two Rent a Rent a Audi R8 Exotic Car Rental Exotic Car Rental LMSs competing in the FIA GT3 European Championship

Problems playing this file? See media help.

For 2009, Audi announced the production of an R8 LMS racing car, designed for the GT3 rules in the FIA GT3 European Championship and various national racing series. Known within Audi Sport as the 'R16', the R8 LMS features a 500 PS (368 kW; 493 bhp) V10 engine. Because the GT3 regulations prohibit the use of four-wheel drive, Audi had to drop its 'trademark' quattro four-wheel drive system, and the R8 LMS is only available with the typical rear-wheel drive setup. The torque is transmitted via a newly developed six-speed sequential sports gearbox. The car was manufactured by Audi Sport, quattro GmbH, and Audi Hungaria Motor Kft. (Györ).

The first test races in various European racing series was scheduled for the 2009 season. Delivery to the customers was planned from the autumn of this coming year.[24] The R8 LMS GT3 was reported to cost $350,000USD.[25] European model was sold for €262,000 (VAT included).[26]

R8 e-tron concept (2009)

See also: Audi e-tron

The Rent a Rent a Audi R8 Exotic Car Rental Exotic Car Rental e-tron concept car is an electric car version of R8 Coupé with slightly smaller body, 4 electric motors rated 317 PS (233 kW; 313 bhp) and 4,500 newton metres (3,319 lbf·ft) of torque. However the proposed torque rating is the torque measured at the wheels, not at the output shaft—as is the industry standard, the true torque rating being around 678 newton metres (500 lbf·ft).[27] Other features include 42.4 kilowatt hours lithium-ion battery, needs-based energy management system, LED technology used for all lighting units, independent cooling system for each axle, doors, covers, sidewalls and roof in fiber-reinforced plastic; 3-mode flush gear selector (forward, reverse and neutral), instrument cluster with fold-out central display with integrated MMI functions, climate control unit located to the right above the steering wheel, racing-inspired lightweight bucket seats, snow white and cognac interior colours, heat pump, climate control system, triangular double wishbones at the front axle and trapezoidal wishbones made of forged aluminum components at the rear axle, direct rack-and-pinion steering with speed-sensitive electromechanical steering boost, 235/35R19 front and 295/30R19 rear tires with a new blade design, prototype of an information processing system (car-to-x communication).

The vehicle was unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt motor show,[28] followed by 2009 LA Auto Show (in orange body colour),[29] 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans.[30]

The prototype version of the R8 e-tron follows closely the original concept, with a shape reminiscent of existing V8 and V10 petrol-powered versions. Audi claims the production version of the R8 e-tron will be capable of a 0–100 km/h (62 mph) time of around 4.8 seconds, making it only 0.2 seconds slower than the R8 V8. Initial plans call for its top speed to be limited to 124 mph (200 km/h) to protect the charge of the battery. It is planned for launch in early 2012.

Along with the R8 e-tron, Audi is also considering small-scale production of a smaller and lighter zero-emission sportscar based on the second e-tron concept displayed at the 2010 Detroit Motor Show.

R8 e-tron prototype (2011)

The vehicle was unveiled in 2011 Frankfurt motor show.[31]

Audi originally announced the first e-tron model to be built by quattro GmbH at Neckarsulm, with a small production series beginning in late 2012.[32] The mass production of R8 e-tron were on hold, pending a project review ordered by new research and development head, Wolfgang Dürheimer.[33]

R8 LMS Evolution (2010)

Changes to the 2009 R8 LMS include the improvement of the engine cooling system capacity, suspension revisions, race-optimised electronics and exhaust systems, and a 6-speed transmission that can be inspected through an opening in the housing without the need to dismantle the entire assembly. Previous vehicles could be upgraded via an update kit.

The final version of the vehicle was sold for €298,000 (£267,000 in UK[20]), with the first delivery went to American-owned United Autosports team from Yorkshire in England.[34]

The R8 GT

It is a limited (333 units world wide, 33 UK, 90 USA) version of R8 Coupé 5.2 FSI quattro with curb weight reduced by 100 kg (220 lb) to 1,525 kg (3,362 lb), increased engine power to 560 PS (412 kW; 552 bhp) (367 PS (270 kW; 362 bhp) per ton). Because of these changes the R8 GT has a top speed of 199 mph (320 km/h) and goes from 0–100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, 0.3 faster than the R8 V10. The car also features some visual changes including red brake caliper covers, a fixed rear wing, front bumper mounted winglets and GT badges replacing the V10 ones.

The vehicle was released in May 2010 for $180,000 (US). US model (with R tronic) was released as 2012 model year car for $196,800 (excluding $1,250 destination charge, taxes, title, options and dealer charges).[35]

R8 'NF' prototype (2011)

The “NF” (i.e. "Nachfolger" or simply "follower") prototype is a lighter weight version of R8 with reported greater use of the lightweight carbon fiber-reinforced polymer.

The vehicle identified as R8 NF was featured on a timeline describing the proliferation of carbon-fiber in vehicles such as the R8 and highlighted the carbon-fiber engine cover on the R8 Spyder, the roof of the R8-based E-Tron and the various pieces found on the limited-run R8 GT, amongst others. Denoted at the 2014 mark was the NF, or more specifically, the passenger section. The prototype was reported to be up 20% (325 kg (720 lb)) lighter than an aluminum-bodied R8.

The photo released by Audi showed a white R8 Coupé 5.2 FSI quattro, which implied that the NF would feature a new carbon-fiber rear bulkhead between the seat backs and the engine compartment and showed the carbon-fiber piece extending into the lower B-pillar. Audi would not elaborate on the image, but the car in photo was identified as a vehicle related to the NF project, but not the NF.

The vehicle was presented in Audi's lightweight research and production plant in Neckarsulm, Germany.[36]

Other technical details

As Volkswagen Group owns both Audi and Lamborghini (Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A.), some of the R8 is shared with the Lamborghini Gallardo, including some of the chassis and floorpan, door handle mechanisms, transmissions, and the revised V10 engine. The R8 is made distinct by its Germanic exterior styling, cabin, smaller V8 engine, magnetic dampers, and pricing.



The V10 engine in the R8



The V8 engine in the R8

The R8 (with the V8 engine) has a curb weight of 1,560 kilograms (3,439 lb).[4] Its suspension uses BWI Group's[67] magneto rheological dampers.[68]

Safety features include Bosch ESP 8.0 Electronic Stability Programme,[4] which includes anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR) and Electronic Differential Lock (EDL),[4] front dual-stage airbags, and 'sideguard' curtain airbags.[69] The R8 also features a distinctive curved bar of LED daytime running lamps (DRLs) mounted inside the xenon HID headlamp casings.

The R8, like most mid- or rear-engine designed sports cars, utilises wider roadwheels and tyres on its rear axle. For the 18-inch alloy wheels (on standard summer tyres), there is just one range of sizes—the fronts are sized at 8.5J×18H2 ET42, whilst the rears are two inches wider at 10.5Jx18H2 ET50. With the 19-inch wheels (standard fit in most markets), the theme continues—the fronts are all 8.5J×19H2 ET42, and the rears are 11.0Jx19H2 ET50.[4] 19-inch wheels for the winter tyre package have a ½" narrower rear compared to the summer tyre wheel package. There is also a corresponding difference in tyre sizes—18's are 235/40 ZR18 95Y XL (eXtra Load) in front and 285/35 ZR18 101Y XL at the rear. For the 19-inch tyres, two different options are available—all fronts are 235/35 ZR19 91Y, and the rears are either 295/30 ZR19 100Y XL or 305/30 ZR19 102Y XL.[4] Standard factory supplied tyre makes offered are either Continental SportContact3 or Pirelli P-Zero Rosso.

Production and available markets

To produce the R8 at quattro GmbH, seventy workers fit 5,000 unique parts by hand. The factory at Neckarsulm, redeveloped at a cost of 28 million, usually produces between eight and fifteen cars a day, up to a maximum daily output of 29 cars.[4] Ninety-five lasers inspect the entire car in five seconds to ensure that over 220 measurements are within 0.1 millimetres of the programmed plans.[70]

The two-seat coupé is currently available in Bahrain, Europe, the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan and South Africa.[71] The R8 Spyder, an open-top roadster model, followed in 2009. In Latin America, the R8 became available at the end of 2008 at dealers in Mexico City, Bogota, Medellin, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Lima, Santiago and Santo Domingo. Customers bought every unit available for 2008 within a week[72] after the R8 premiered at the Bogota International Auto Show and Auto Expo of Medellin.




















In Asia, the R8 is available in Bahrain, Kuwait, Pakistan, India, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Philippines, Hong Kong and Vietnam, and has been available in China, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia since 2008.

The first Rent a Rent a Audi R8 Exotic Car Rental Exotic Car Rental LMS (chassis number 101) was delivered to Audi Sport Italia in 2009.[78]

Despite the development of the car, Audi itself had stated not to enter any races with the new GT3 car as an official 'factory' team.[79] The car was unveiled at Essen Motor Show.[80]

In the 2009 24 Hours Nürburgring, and preceding VLN endurance races, Audi privateer teams had entered four cars, operated by the Abt Sportsline and Nürburging-based Phoenix race teams. Until the 19th hour, two of these R8 remained challengers for the lead, against two Manthey-operated Porsche GT3 in the same lap, before the leading #99 car[81] suffered suspension problems. The #97 finished 2nd,[82] and despite electrical and gearbox problems, the other two cars finished 23rd or better.

Australian Mark Eddy participated in the 2010 Australian GT Championship with the first R8 LMS in the Southern Hemisphere.[83] In the 2010 24 Hours Nürburgring, the first four spots on the grid were occupied by Rent a Rent a Audi R8 Exotic Car Rental Exotic Car Rental.

Audi's Le Mans 24 Hour team, Joest Racing ran a pair of R8 LMS GT3's in the 2011 Bathurst 12 Hour held at the Mount Panorama Circuit, Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia on 6 February 2011. The #7 R8 driven by an all-Australian crew of Mark Eddy, multiple Bathurst 1000 winner Craig Lowndes and Warren Luff qualified on pole alongside team mates Marc Basseng, Christopher Mies and Darryl O'Young in the #8 car. Bessing, Miles and O'Young won the race from Eddy, Lowndes & Luff by just 0.71 seconds with Lowndes setting the races fastest lap and a new class lap record of 2:09.0861 for the 6.213 km long circuit on lap 267 of the 292 ran in the 12 hour time frame.[84] FIA GT3 and Australian GT Championship cars were included in the 12 Hour for the first time in 2011. The race had previously been the domain of Group 3E Series Production Cars. Phoenix Racing returned to the event in 2012 and won the event again with Christopher Mies, Darryl O'Young and Christer Joens.

In July 2010 Audi took its EV concept to the Silvretta E-Auto Rally in Austria. The competition is designed to pit the latest and greatest of the electric vehicle world against each other over 10 special stages that cover a total of 104 miles. The company picked Michael Dick, a member of its board for technical development, and Lucas Luhr, a factory race driver, to helm the machine throughout the event.

Reviews and awards

Many publications were hailing it as the first car to truly be able to beat the Porsche 997 — considered by many to be one of the best sports cars ever made, and a leader in its class.[90] Initial comparison tests have proven quite positive in this respect; Evo Magazine listed it as a "supercar",[91] compared the R8 to the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, Aston Martin V8 Vantage, and BMW M6 and after praising the R8's "amazing stability, traction and grip, unparalleled steering accuracy and bite, (and) its uncannily flat and disturbance-free ride", claimed that as a result of "the sublime effortlessness of it all", the Audi is a better sports car. The article concluded that "Audi humbles Porsche. A new dawn starts today".[92]

Other publications have also written similar reviews of the Audi beating the Porsche in comparison tests.[9][93] In a half mile drag race conducted by Battle of the Supercars between the R8 and a 997 Carrera S, the Porsche won, crossing the line just a half metre before the R8. However, the R8 easily beat the Porsche around Top Gear's test track.

The television show Top Gear compared the Nissan GT-R to the R8 V8, and remarked that the R8 was "simultaneously less impressive and yet somehow more involving". On the R8 they wrote that "it rewards driver input", calling it "fantastic in a way that will appeal more to true car enthusiasts", but also remarked that it (the V8 model) was "much slower", and the GT-R was cheaper.[94] On their test track, the car performed better than a Lamborghini Gallardo and an Aston Martin DB9.

On Bedford Autodrome, tested by Evo Magazine, the R8 was faster than the Lamborghini Gallardo.[citation needed]

Oxotic will run an immediate appraisal based on information we collect from you during our initial call. This process will determine the maximum amount of money we will lend on your vehicle. We will ask for you to provide us with several pieces of documentation.
Items such as:

  • Scan, photo or fax the title (Front and Back)
  • Photos of your vehicle inside & out
  • Drivers License

This means you can instantly sign your contract from you smart phone, tablet or computer. If you are not ready for this high-tech approach to contracts we can always send you a fax or PDF hard copy for you to sign, then scan or fax back.

Collect Vehicle

From here we will coordinate two pickups:

  1. Currier will pick up vehicle title per the loan agreement
  2. Oxotic Certified transport company will collect vehicle for short term storage.

Wire Funds

Once the vehicle and title have been collected we will initiate the funding process with our bank. You will have several funding options that will be addressed in the contract. You may either receive a bank wire or cashier check. We do have *same day delivery or pick-up options coast to coast.

*This option is available for a fee.

Pay Off Loan

Your loan contract will specify the specific details around the length of the loan and interest payment dates. However you are welcome to pay the loan back at anytime with ZERO prepayment penalties. You will just pay the balance due plus interest accrued.
