My brothers father in law had one of these in 2009, was hard to drive it on normal roads cause of its height.

Ok, now how about maintenance cost? At 74K KM and more than 11 years old there is bound to be some maintenance issues that needs to be dealt with. Especially on a sports car.

Yeah I wouldn't buy a polished version of a shitty VW, especially at those km.

Didn't those original 4.2 R8's cost like R850k? Owner's had less than a 200k knock.

Custom canards, fins, spoilers, and rims also give the impression that the previous owner was someone who enjoyed driving their car hard.
It could also mean they know a thing or 2 about cars and would have ensured it was maintained properly, especially with a car worth this much ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Perhaps for other supercars, they have a point. Ferrari, etc.
This R8 is full of parts found in other VW models so 79k KM should not be a problem at all.
If I had the cash I would take a chance on one of these.

The excellent JayEmm on Cars did a couple of recent very informative videos on this very discussion.
