    Audi creates a chrome R8 V10 to be auctioned off for charity

    No, this isn't some Saudi prince's idea of gaudy indulgence. Audi created this chrome R8 to support the EJAF White Tie & Tiara Ball. What is that? Well, it's a ball hosted by Sir Elton John annually that benefits the Elton John's AIDS Foundation. Basically, a bunch of rich people gather to throw away a few dollars they can easily spare and everyone gets to hang out with Elton John feeling like they are making a real difference bidding on chrome R8's. Definitely a nice gesture on Audi's part to donate the car.

    I hate events like this. It's Duplicity.
    You want to help people?ok, but it doesn't need cameras or reporters.

    Oh Shiney! True these things can be done with all the hoopla. But it was cool that Audi donated this car for charity.

    Who says chrome is out of style? Special chromed V10 R8's raise $988,000

    Remember the chrome R8 we told you was going to be auctioned off? Well, the car was such a hit Audi donated a second R8. The first R8 was actually submitted twice with the winner putting it right back up for auction where it generated even more money. All in all, just under $1 million dollars was generated by the two chrome R8's Audi donated. Audi UK stated: “We are absolutely delighted to have been instrumental in raising such a magnificent sum for Sir Elton’s charity."

    Can someone answer this $#@!ing question for me please.

    After this money gets into Elton Johns hand, where does it go? Show me the poor kid with no food that got some of this money. Show me the homeless guys and the people dying of hunger that get the cash.

    The only awareness I see here is more publicity to Elton and Audi.

    Cool car though.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    I'm sure it is a reputable charity or Audi would not donate 2 R8's.
