The most powerful Audi engine ever destined for series production is about to raise the tempo.
The latest open-air, high intensity R8 Spyder will get the gloriously vocal 610PS V10 from the R8 V10 plus Coupé.
The new R8 Spyder V10 plus is capable of 0-62mph in a mere 3.3 seconds and a top speed in excess of 200mph, spurred on by its significant 70PS power advantage, and by a significant 25kg weight reduction, versus the ‘standard’ V10 Spyder.
Available to order in the UK later this month, the R8 Spyder V10 plus will be priced from £147,470 and will feature a standard specification list that reflects the sporting credentials and premium positioning of this high-performance flagship.
Highlights include R8 bucket seats, liberally applied carbon fibre-reinforced polymer components inside and out, ceramic brakes, the R8-specific Audi Virtual Cockpit and the option of an exclusive micrommata green paint finish for an even more cutting-edge look.
