THE DEAL seems legit, only problem is you won’t be getting a real Audi for peanuts – what did you expect? Having a Lamborghini Murciélago or an Aston Martin DB9 in the garage might be the ultimate in-your-face moment for your showy neighbors, but realistically, not all of us can afford a supercar. It’s a tragic notion that the people over at Audi Canada want to remedy. The price tag on the 2010 Audi R8 V10 may read $141k, but you can start an ownership cycle with one for just $470. Audi Canada has created a garage door wrap with a life-size print of a red Audi R8 sitting in a garage – quite a clean one too, I might add. The cover may officially label you as a poseur for life, and it certainly won’t be able to take you anywhere nice. I bet quite a number of people will be secretly disappointed to learn how the company will only ship to Canadian residents. If you ask me, the car looks nice but it’s nothing special (Chrysler 300C fan speaking here). Does all this somehow ring a bell? You’re right – BMW HAS ALREADY BEAT YOU ON THIS, AUDI!

An Audi R8 for $470 ???

Hmm, they say: "Get an Audi R8 for just $469.99 this way". I say: "$$$ for just a poster"?!!

    Why show off having a nice car? Isn’t that just a sure way to get robbed? The point of a garage is so no one knows what you have. :)

    I’m the first to comment! Cool illusion. I was tricked at first. When I first saw it I thought there was something in the background.

    this illiusion is soooo LAME! no offense to who ever owns this website, but u can totally tell that the car is painted on the garage

  10. Grolix says:

    this one is obvious

    both cars are the same size!

  11. Care Bear says:

    I figure $2.50 to $5 is about enough for a poster. Besides, in my neighborhood it would get vandalized in no time at all.

    It’s just a stupid way to waste money, imho, unless you are so filthy rich you don’t mind.
    Human nature being what it is, sooner or later someone (a neighbor; some teenager passing by) is going to be pissed off at the poster and scratch it and there goes 470 bucks.

    I’d rather have a picture of an R8 than a real Chrysler 300C.

    You should just leave it like that. Put a video camera. Wait until some stupid guy wants to look/feel/steel you awesome new car. He will learn a new lesson. We will laugh

    Proof positive that as P. T. Barnum stated: “There’s a sucker born every minute.”

    Only a sucker would pay $470 for a picture of a car to put on their garage door.

    I call lameness on this.

  19. GurlishRockaahh says:

  20. DaEgg says:

    Umm.. Grolix? What? There is only one! Actually, zero. What are you even talking about? Whaaa??
    Oh, and GurlishRockaahh, I realize that. When I posted that it was at the top of a new page that I thought was the first one. Jorsh. No reason to go all caps-lock on me…lol
