We Drove A New R8 Spyder Into Supercar-Spotting Central To See Who Papped Us

If you’ve ever been to Knightsbridge in London at the height of summer, you’ll know supercar spotting is serious business.

With so many luxury motors cruising around town, teenagers lose their minds. Everything from professional camera set-ups to smartphones are pointed at expensive machinery and the results usually end up all over social media.

So when we were given the keys to one of the first Audi R8 Spyders in the country, we thought we’d head to Sloane Street on a Saturday to see if we’d catch the eye of the supercar paparazzi.

It’s safe to say we did.

During the first few trips up the road a couple of people snapped us, but then word got around that something a bit rare was in town. After lunch we headed back up the street and no fewer than a dozen youngsters stopped traffic – rather dangerously, we might add – just to get a shot.

We’ve scoured Instagram to see if we could find any of the photos – here’s what we’ve got!
