Drop the top: the soft-top
The soft top of the Audi R8 Spyder V10 quattro weighs just 44 kg. It not only contributes to the excellent power to weight ratio: it also ensures a low centre of gravity, which means more stability for driving around corners. At speeds of up to 50 km/h, an electro-hydraulic system folds the soft top under a carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) cover in just 20 seconds. The rear window in the bulkhead partition can also be moved up and down at the push of a button.
V10 engine: the beating heart of the Audi R8 Spyder V10 quattro
It’s the familiar growl you love, but with extra bite. With 570 hp, the roar of the new Audi R8 Spyder is unmistakable.
The chassis: precision from every perspective
Key to comfort and stability in the new Audi R8 Spyder V10 quattro is the double aluminium wishbone axles that guide all four wheels. Modifications to the suspension provide razor-sharp precision when you need it most. It’s power to match the purpose.
Form follows fascination: the design
When closed, the soft top accentuates the athletic lines of the Audi R8 Spyder V10 quattro, while the open-top draws attention to the powerfully accented wheel arches. They evoke from Audi's racing history, as do the flat slits above the Singleframe radiator grille. Deep horizontal lines make the Audi R8 Spyder appear even lower and sportier than its predecessor. The rear features a raised diffusor and air outlet grille along with new oval tailpipes.
Interior: focus and elegance
With its cockpit design, it’s no coincidence that when you get inside the new Audi R8 Spyder V10 quattro, you feel like you’re behind the wheel of a race car. The heated sports seats are electrically and pneumatically adjustable and upholstered in high-quality nappa leather. For the Audi R8 Spyder, there are new colour combinations: pastel silver with stone-grey contrast stitching and palomino brown with steel-grey seams. You can always make the interior more your own with Audi exclusive and choose from a variety of colour and material options.
The Audi virtual cockpit: keep everything in view
Engine start-up, exhaust sound, driving dynamics and gear changes can all be controlled from the buttons on the R8 performance steering wheel. A range of innovative technologies come as standard including MMI Navigation plus with Audi connect, Audi Drive Select, which lets you customise the drive to suit you, and the fully customisable Audi Virtual Cockpit, which replaces the traditional instrument cluster with a high-resolution 12.3” LCD screen.
