V10 naturally aspirated engine: power comes from the heart
It will grab the attention of your eyes and ears – the character of the Audi R8 Spyder V10 performance quattro is sharpened by unbridled power: the 5.2 FSI engine provides a maximum of 560 Nm of torque at 6200 rpm. Thanks to the dry sump lubrication, the mid-positioned engine has a particularly low installation position. In turn, this has a major influence on how precisely you can steer the R8 in any situation. The special ignition sequence for the 10 cylinders finally turns into an utterly characteristic sound: a throaty hissing and roaring noise. It'll be the soundtrack of your driving, particularly if you have the top down.
Along the way to its top speed, you will be accompanied by a newly developed 7-speed S-tronic transmission with narrow, sporty gears and an optimised quattro drive. This ensures optimum torque distribution at every point in time, giving you a decisive advantage in terms of traction, dynamics and driving safety.

The chassis: precision from every perspective
In addition to performance, racing is about how precisely and directly you can replicate it on the road. The chassis is a key part of the answer: dual aluminium wishbone axles guide all four wheels, while the Audi R8 Spyder V10 performance quattro features springs and dampers that are set up to be even tighter. With Audi magnetic ride, there is the option to have the damping system adapt to the way the shock absorbers work to suit your driving style and the profile of the road – making changes every millisecond for each individual wheel. The re-tuned steering assistance ensures exceptionally accurate feedback from the road. The optional dynamic steering adjusts the steering angle depending on your speed, ensuring agile handling. The standard carbon-fibre-reinforced ceramic brakes on the R8 Spyder V10 performance quattro come in anthracite grey as standard and are also available in red.
The interior: focus and elegance
Racing is also noticeable in the interior of the Audi R8 Spyder V10 performance quattro. It’s no coincidence that when you get inside, 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. There are also new colour combinations: pastel silver with stone-grey contrast stitching, palomino brown with steel-grey seams and black with utopia-blue stitching. 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 Spyder V10 performance quattro 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.
