Maximum performance. Breathtaking sound. The new Audi R8 Spyder V10 Rear Wheel Series (RWS) is the first production rear-wheel drive Audi to bring the driving concept of our R8 LMS racing car to the streets. The chassis setup and control systems allow controlled drifts if the driver chooses, the electromechanical power steering is completely free of torque steer, enabling precise handling and control. The fully automatic fin roof can be operated at a speed of up to 50 km/h in just 20 seconds. The R8 V10 RWS comes as a limited edition with a combined Spyder and Coupé production volume of just 999 cars worldwide.
From 0 to 100 km/h
Pressing the accelerator unleashes 540 HP of breath-taking performance directly to the rear wheels. The mid-engine concept also offers very high stability which gives a higher curve speed despite the rear-wheel drive. The axle load distribution of 40.4: 59.6 and the suspension and driving dynamics fine-tuning, especially adapted to the rear wheel drive, ensure enormous driving pleasure.
Guaranteed to make your heart beat faster, the 5.2 litre V10 FSI engine in the R8 Spyder V10 RWS provides incredible acceleration. 540 HP at 7,800 rpm⁻¹ launches the car to a maximum speed of 320 km/h. Even more impressive, the maximum torque is 540 Nm at 6,500 rpm⁻¹ with a cubic capacity of 5.204 cubic centimetres. These figures all add up to real driving pleasure.
Performance in every part
The interior of the Audi R8 Spyder V10 RWS is sheer athleticism with hand-made quality. The interior gives the feeling of being inside a car that’s about to hit the race track. The flat-bottomed 3-spoke steering wheel and the all-digital Virtual Cockpit display puts everything you need right in front of you. It’s a driver-focused experience like no other. MMI Navigation Plus comes as standard as does Audi Drive Select which lets you customise the ride with different modes.
The sound and power of freedom
The power of the 10-cylinder engine in the R8 Spyder V10 RWS is not only felt. In performance mode the signature engine sound really makes itself heard, confirming its Audi Sport DNA.
