2018 Audi R8 Spyder

The all-new 2018 Audi R8 Spyder V10 Plus is the fastest convertible model from the brand. Like the R8 Plus coupe, the R8 Spyder Plus sports a wailing 5.2-liter V-10 engine that packs 610 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque — an increase of 70 hp and 15 lb-ft over the regular model.

The Quattro all-wheel drive powerplant is mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. It’ll get you from 0-62 mph in 3.3 seconds onto a top speed of 203.8 mph.

The optional design package has an anthracite gray single frame grille and black tailpipe covers. The interior is in all black Nappa leather with green stitching accents. The Spyder V10 also gets a large 12.3-inch Audi virtual cockpit and a Bang & Olufsen sound system with loudspeakers in the seats. The leather on the bucket seats has a special pigmenting that stops them from heating up in the sun’s rays.
The standard tires are 245/35R-19 front and 295/35R-19 in the back, with 245/30R-20 front and 305/30R-20 rear rubber optional. The electrically assisted rack-and-pinion steering comes from ZF. Adaptive, magnetorheological dampers for the suspension are also optional.

Audi has not announced the availability of the R8 Spyder V10 plus in the US, but orders are now being accepted in Germany with the first deliveries starting in late summer 2017. The base price in Germany is 207,500 euros.
