This Is the New Audi R8 V10 Spyder

The German manufacturer unveils its most powerful convertible yet.

By //Automotive

Say hello to the R8 V10 Spyder — Audi‘s most powerful convertible of all-time. A followup to last year’s second-generation R8, the Spyder edition of the vehicle obviously ditches its predecessor’s fixed roof, but offers a bevy of improvements, too. The naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 — coupled to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission — is now capable of 601 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque and even weighs less than the OG R8 Spyder. The result is a vehicle that can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.3 seconds before topping out at 204 mph. To celebrate the release, Audi has also unveiled an exclusive, head-turning “Micrommata Green” paint scheme, which is joined by black and grey accents throughout. Other details include the likes of a 12.3-inch Audi Virtual Cockpit, Audi Drive Select, bucket seats, and ceramic brakes.

The R8 V10 Spyder Plus is due out this summer with prices starting at $232,450 USD.
