2008 Audi R8: Sleeping (Not So Much) Beauty

January 08, 2009

I took the R8 out again for more "cover" shots. Again, I spent the night at my girlfriend's house not only because she has a garage, but also I hadn't seen her the previous night. Two birds with one stone, right?

I woke up a little after 5am to get some sunrise shots. I was careful not to wake her. I picked up all my gear carefully and went out to the car as quietly as possible.

My ninja skills were thwarted by the turn of the key.

"BBBBBBBBBRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWW!" Snarled the engine as it came to life.

Lights went on at the neighbors. A dog barked at me. Got a text from my lady: "loud".

I felt bad. For about a second that is. Once I got it out of her garage, it was like playing a really good round of Night Driver.
