Stunning, agile and possessing unrivaled power and performance, the R8 Spyder is the supercar that drivers dream about. Consider your wish granted.
Everything on the R8 Spyder is on the cutting edge of design. And our LED daytime running lights and headlights are no exception. They not only help make you more visible to other drivers, but also help you to see better at night with exceptional brightness and clarity. Because we believe style always helps substance shine a little brighter.
We had the idea that to win, we had to lose. Weight, that is. Using our ultra® lightweight technology and ASF® aluminum construction, the R8 Spyder incorporates strong yet lightweight materials in its body for faster acceleration, shorter braking distances, and sharper handling. It's how a little weight loss added up to a big performance win.
Once you experience the superior performance and stunning power of the R8 Spyder, you may be tempted to turn it up a notch. Or in this case, down. The watertight soft top retracts in 17 seconds and its lightweight design helps keep the car's center of gravity low and your sensory experience high.
With Audi quattro® all-wheel drive, the Audi R8 Spyder can handle almost any challenge thrown at it. Be it performance-driving or inclement weather situations, quattro® helps the R8 Spyder adapt by quickly distributing power to the wheels that need it most. After all, what is performance without control?
If you're really hungry for power, the R8 Spyder delivers. Consider the 430-hp FSI® V8 engine that delivers heart-racing performance, or the available FSI® V10 that generates a pulse-pounding 525 horsepower. With choices like these, your rise to power will be a fast one.
This feature uses rear sensors to detect when you are close to another object, while a rear view camera helps provide additional visibility when backing up. It's clear we've got parking covered.
Combining the strength, lightness and heightened resistance to heat and fade that only carbon fiber and ceramic brakes can provide, the R8 Spyder has stopping power in more ways than one.
The available MMI® navigation system can help you find your way while also helping you find new points of interest. It lets you know where you're going while getting lost in the drive.
With 12 speakers and an impressive 465 watts of power, this available premium audio system provides unrivaled sound reproduction and clarity.
