Audi R8 Spyder

Ever since its introduction in 2010, the R8 Spyder has managed to completely change what people think of Audi. Now in its second generation, the Audi R8 has been designed to be the perfect all-round supercar. Sharing the same carbon-aluminum chassis as the Lamborghini Huracan, the R8 is lighter and stiffer than the previous generation. The exterior has been totally redesigned while staying true to the successful R8 formula. The front fascia has been redesigned to be more aerodynamic and incorporates the latest generation of Audi’s famous LED matrix highlights. Oh and with the top down it's guaranteed to make that glorious V10 shine even brighter. The cloth convertible top can be raised and lowered in as little as 19 seconds while still being able to travel up to 31 miles per hour.
The Audi R8 Spyder features a Lamborghini derived 5.2L V10 sending 540-hp to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Sadly the manual transmission has gone the way of the dinosaurs for Audi. Audi’s drive select system is standard on the R8 and can change vehicle settings to optimize it for street or track use.
The driver’s seat of the R8 is truly cockpit-like. The flat-bottom steering wheel gives quick access to media and vehicle systems while also having a number of other satellite buttons controlling systems such as the exhaust and the Audi Drive Select system. Audi’s new “Virtual cockpit” uses a full digital display that is also configurable to let you have the just information you want on display. A new variant of Audi’s MMI system integrates the familiar central dial flanked by other control buttons but also incorporates a touchpad built into the dial itself for easier use. The R8’s seats are well bolstered and supportive yet comfortable enough to drive in everyday. Fine Nappa leather is laid out throughout the cabin and can be optioned for the seats as well in a beautiful diamond pattern.
The Audi R8’s return turns up the heat on its rivals by having the perfect mix of everyday refinement and V10 powered lunacy. The previous generation Audi R8 was a wild success and with the upgrades Audi has made to this new generation you can be sure this current generation will only be better. Competitors to the R8 Spyder include the Porsche 911 Cabriolet, McLaren 650S Spider, and Ferrari 458 Spider.
