The Audi R8 Spyder was born on the racetrack, its heritage spread over 100 years of production and its design directly influenced by the 5 times Le Mans winning race car of the same name. Based on the Lamborghini Gallardo platform and with Audi’s trademark quattro four wheel drive system, the perfectly balanced, mid-engine configured R8 was quite simply born to win.
Head turning wherever it goes and lightning quick, the R8’s V10 puts out 532 horsepower and tops the speedometer at nearly 320 Km/h. The R8 Spyder shares most of the R8 coupes components, but due to it being a convertible the chassis is stiffer, as too is its windshield, and it also has the added safety of rollover safety bars. Not just a beautifully fast car, it handles like a true race car, with all of Audi’s race knowledge poured into every inch of the R8 Spyder, and always following the Audi company ethos of “Advancement through technology”.
