Born on the track, built for the road. The new Audi R8 Spyder features a number of performance and styling updates. From more power and torque to the striking design details, the R8 Spyder's road presence is more defined than ever.
Impressive: the Audi R8 Spyder V10 quattro reaches 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds.
Final statement: The air outlet grille in full width of the car with the diffuser pulled far up.
Beats the average: Flat slits in the bonnet are a reminder of the brand icon Audi Sport quattro.
128 LEDs form a striking, widely visible light signature at the rear.
Open to everything: the Audi R8 Spyder V10 quattro with open top.
A look inside: All controls are focused on the driver.
Special display: Displays for g-forces, torque or lap times are grouped around the rev counter in the Audi virtual cockpit.
The red button on the multifunction steering wheel starts the V10 naturally aspirated engine.
The newly developed S-tronic has seven closely scaled sporty gears.
from 0 to 100 km/h
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 R8 Spyder
It’s the familiar growl you love, but with extra bite. With 620HP, the roar of the new R8 Spyder is unmistakable.
The chassis: precision from every perspective
Key to the comfort and stability in the new R8 Spyder 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, 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 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 R8 Spyder, 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 R8 Spyder, there are 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 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.
The specified fuel consumption and emission data have been determined according to the measurement procedures prescribed by law. Since 1st September 2017, certain new vehicles are already being type-approved according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure for measuring fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Starting on September 1st 2018, the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) will be replaced by the WLTP in stages. Owing to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions measured according to the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those measured according to the NEDC. Therefore, the usage of CO2 emission values measured according to WLTP for vehicle taxation from 1st September 2018 on can cause changes in this regard as well. For further information on the differences between the WLTP and NEDC, please visit www.audi.de/wltp.
We are currently still required by law to state the NEDC figures. In the case of new vehicles which have been type-approved according to the WLTP, the NEDC figures are derived from the WLTP data. It is possible to specify the WLTP figures voluntarily in addition until such times as this is required by law. In cases where the NEDC figures are specified as value ranges, these do not refer to a particular individual vehicle and do not constitute part of the sales offering. They are intended exclusively as a means of comparison between different vehicle types. Additional equipment and accessories (e.g. add-on parts, different tyre formats, etc.) may change the relevant vehicle parameters, such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics, and, in conjunction with weather and traffic conditions and individual driving style, may affect fuel consumption, electrical power consumption, CO2 emissions and the performance figures for the vehicle. Further information on official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO₂ emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the guide “Information on the fuel consumption, CO₂ emissions and electricity consumption of new cars”, which is available free of charge at all sales dealerships and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Strasse 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, Germany (www.dat.de).
