According to some reports, Micky Yoochun of TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki fame has bought a new car… and it’s not just any car. If any of you watched the movie IRON MAN, you saw the protagonist Tony Stark driving around in a hot car. Well, Micky bought that same car… The Audi R8.
The Audi R8 is a 420 horsepower supercar and costs around $125,000 US (even more expensive in Korea around $200,000 US). Micky already owned a mini cooper and Lexus IS350 before but he is stepping his game up a notch now.
Looks like TVXQ is Big Ballin after all. I guess Lee Soo Man is finally untightening some of the screws. The old H.O.T. members were living off of pennies for every album sold, and driving around old ddong-cha’s (junky cars), while TVXQ members are going around buying supercars. Thanks to DBSK Knight, Sharing Yoochun, and mystarrynightz for the tip.
Audi’s R8 has been named World Performance Car and World Car Design of the Year by an international jury at the 2008 New York Auto Show.
The jurists noted the R8’s ‘solid credentials on paper thanks to its mid-mounted 420-horsepower V8 engine and aluminum construction. But where it excels is in the exceptional balance, refinement and control that grant the driver the confidence to push to the limit. It has astonishing precision for a car of its size category.
