Drop the top on the Audi R8 Spyder to discover a whole new type of continental cruising. Speed, style, and an unmistakable racing pedigree all unite to create the groundbreaking R8 Spyder – available at Lookers Audi.
Audi's mantra, Vorsprung durch Technik, truly comes to life in the design of the new Audi R8 Spyder, which is crafted with precision by Audi's hand-picked engineers. A prominent single-frame grille and unique LED headlights create instant impact from the front, whilst striking coupé-style lines decorate the sides and sleek aluminium louvres complete the rear profile. The one-touch soft-top roof folds away quickly at speeds of up to 31mph, and when raised creates the perfect range of acoustics to invigorate your drive.
The Audi R8 Spyder re-writes the rule book when it comes to high-performance sports cars. It offers exceptional legroom and luggage space. There's even an optional made-to-measure leather luggage package available with your new Audi R8, to make the most of the space inside the ergonomically designed cockpit. Draped in the finest Nappa leather, every aspect is engineered for performance, from the flat-bottomed steering wheel to the DVD-based navigation system. And for that perfect atmosphere, 14 Bang & Olufsen speakers feature throughout the interior.
Just 3.8 seconds is all that's needed to take the Audi R8 to 60mph from a standstill. From here, the Spyder climbs to a top speed of 155mph, peaking at 530Nm of torque. That's with the ultra-high-powered 5.2-litre FSI quattro V10 engine. For a slightly more modest approach, opt for the 4.2-litre FSI V8 with mid-engine alignment. Both utilise an optional seven-speed S tronic gearbox and Audi magnetic ride adaptive damping system for exceptional racing quality.
In the R8 Spyder, Audi hasn't forgotten that high-octane performance is nothing without exceptional safety. That's why the model features fade-resistant, eight-piston ceramic brakes for flawless stopping power, and Audi's electric stability programme to help keep you in control at all times. In the event of an accident, Audi's intelligent Space Frame absorbs the brunt of the impact, and two-stage airbags activate to shield the interior.
