Thank you for pointing that out!
Also went from aluminum construction to carbon fiber construction, gained 150hp, and all sorts of other, minor facelifts :)
Kristen. Hate to tell you this, but the R8 has already been replaced. I mean, sure Audis are so indistinguishable now that you can’t tell a current model apart from one made in 2007, but I can assure you the R8 for sale currently is all-new.
Auto insurance guy here. Turo should not and would not be involved in the valuation process outside of possibly verifying the value. The adjuster will assess the car “conservatively” and will view the terms of the policy to see if coverage is in place.
That’s a bullshit answer from someone who has apparently never driven on ice.

Is it Trabant week and nobody told me? DeMuro just did on piece on them, too!
Hahahaha but of course sir Demuro. I am a fan of yours but my pedantry went into overdrive for a moment. I do apologise, please go about your stellar work.

Trust me, thank YOU for responding and rekindling the love of one of my childhood favorites. I feel like I have something new to start trying to get Rich for again.
Huh. Didn’t know you owned a Ferrari.
No problem. It was great to meet you.
You’ll certainly be in the loop! All Jalopnik writers/contributors are welcome as well any time!
Doug, thank you for this.
you have convinced me to only write about bad cars now
So what you are saying is that driving your unreliable car, it is becoming more reliable. I like where you head is at...
Every day here is a vacation!
See this is why I went to Acadia in late May and it was still a PAIN IN THE ASS drive. Bravo sir...bravo. Pure coincidence that I guessed Aston Martin when you sold the Skyline (imagine explaing that to the “Mainers”) but it has been excellent so far with adventures.
