2008 Audi R8: Roadtrippin' 2,300 Miles--Seattle Or Bust

July 05, 2008

Who would be dumb enough to take our long term 2008 Audi R8 on a six-day, 2,300 mile road trip?

*raises hand*

Last time I drove an Audi R8, I proclaimed to those in our office whom would listen (thanks Mr. Goldfish) that the car is compliant and comfortable enough that one could drive it across the country without a moment's hesitation.

So now I'm putting that claim to the test. I'm taking it on a roadtrip to Seattle and back with a few stops along the way to visit family and to explore some cool roads.

First things first. Need to pack. How much stuff can you put in a mid-engine two seater? Turns out not much. The two duffels pictured above hold the brunt of stuff for two people and six days.

They fit quite nicely in the R8's trunk along with a gift for my sister, and there's at least two cubic centimeters left over:

Bonus space behind the seats:

Time to hit the road.
