The all-new Audi R8 V10 Spyder supercar is now available to order from your local Audi Centre!
Redesigned from the ground, the second generation R8 Spyder combines the breath-taking performance of the R8 with the open-top thrill of a cabriolet.
It’s powered by a new 5.2-litre, 540PS FSI engine that produces 540 Nm of torque and accelerates from 0-62mph in just 3.6 seconds, and a top speed of 197mph.
The S tronic transmission is capable of gear changes within hundredths of a second and no model bearing the four Audi rings comes closer to giving you the adrenalin rush of the track in a series production vehicle.
Similar to the Coupé model, the all-new Spyder is lighter, flatter and more muscular in appearance than its predecessor.
Fully automated, the lightweight hood opens in 20 seconds at speeds of up to 31mph. Once stowed and you open the throttle, you’ll notice lower levels of wind and road noise than on previous Spyder models, in part, due to a rear deflector that can be raised and lowered to suit you.
With its monoposto cockpit design, it’s no coincidence that inside the R8, you get the feeling of being behind the wheel of a race car! Engine start-up, exhaust sound, driving dynamics and gear changes can all be controlled from the buttons on the R8 performance steering wheel.
The interior boasts refined materials, precise workmanship and innovative technologies and the new, fully customisable Audi Virtual Cockpit puts all the information you need directly in front you.
There’s also plenty of scope for personalising the R8 Spyder, with 11 different colours to choose from and the ability to upgrade items such as the Sport Plus Pack which adds the adaptive magnetic ride suspension and variable speed steering. This also adds a louder sports exhaust that has tips finished in black, rather than chrome.
Priced from £129,990, just over £10,000 more than the Coupé, the R8 Spyder is available to order now with first UK deliveries beginning later this year.
