Audi R8 Lease Deals?


What’s considered a good deal right now on an Audi R8 lease. I’m located in NY but willing to get a car from elsewhere.

Has to be a Plus/Performance. Don’t mind if it’s a demo or even a pre-owned (although those usually don’t lease well).

I’ve seen new R8s being offered at 26k off MSRP before any negotiation right now.

Debating between a lease or a purchase of a heavily discounted 2020 R8 Performance or a 2017 R8 Plus

Thanks for the input!

Ideally 24 month and 7500 mpy, but open to 36.

Why not reach out to an Audi broker?

I’ve rarely seen aggressive R8 lease deals. Even when heavily discounted, it typically just makes sense to finance and sell down the line. What it comes down to is a conservative RV that hasn’t ever been subvented that I’ve ever heard of.

I think @Zein has leased an R8 before. He might have some advice for you

Hey- I can give you some perspective as I have lease a 2017 R8 V10+ and a 2018 R8 V10+. I was also about to recently trade my '18 in for a '20 EXCEPT Audi learned one valuable lesson from the '17+'18- the residual needed to be right sized.

Albeit said, a unicorn deal on a NEW R8 (all incentives, marketing allowances, dealer discounted included) should be right around the 20% off mark. For example, a $220K sticker should have a sale price of roughly $176K. Both my R8’s were 19.6% and 20.4% off sticker but the residuals were around 68% and 69% (with Audicare). My lease payments were $1,565 (17) and $1,375 (18) with originally putting $30K down and letting the equity carry over into my 2018.

Today you are looking at a 58% residual on 24 mo, 7.5K which has an insane monthly payment; hence why I went to Lamborghini and (holding all other factors equal) got a better deal on R8’s big brother, the Huracan for a cheaper lease than the R8 as the Huracan is a 72% residual.

Yes, a $332K car has a cheaper lease than a $220K car because of the 14% difference in residual.

Still want an R8- go after a low mileage 2018 that has tanked in price. I’m set to return mine in 7 months and residual is $137K for an original $201K car in 24 Mo.

I’m considering buying mine as well as the R8 is such a better daily driver (more comfortable and technologically user friendly) than any exotic I have been.

If Audi didn’t kill the R8 residual by 10% than it would still be a great deal, but not today!

Buy used with light mileage!
