In 2016, Audi revealed the brand-new R8 Spyder featuring the splendid naturally aspirated V-10 engine we’ve come to know and value. Yet, during the live unveiling, Audi didn’t reveal the R8 Spyder’s upcoming cost, just stating it would be released more detailed to its on-sale date. Now that the on-sale date is appearing, Audi has revealed the car’s starting cost, and it’s similar to many of its rivals at $176,350 including tax, title, and registration.

Based on the basic Audi R8 coupe, the R8 Spyder utilizes the very same 5.2-liter V-10 developing 540 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque paired to the same seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission. This performance permits the R8 Spyder to strike 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of 198 miles per hour.

To boost the rigidity of the R8 Spyder, Audi updated the R8 Spyder’s architecture with the development of a new aluminum and carbon fiber architecture. As per Audi, the new ASF lightweight chassis uses a greater percentage of carbon fiber materials, and integrates new supports into the R8 Spyder’s sills, A-pillars, and windshield frame. Because of that, the R8 Spyder is now 50 percent stiffer compared to the last generation R8 Spyder.

Again, similar to the coupe, the R8 V10 Spyder has the exact same motorist oriented cockpit. Equipped with easy to operate controls and functions, the 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit display relays essential information to the driver and is revitalized at 60 frames per second. Another new offering is Audi Connect, which provides customers 4G LTE connectivity, destination entry via myAudi, travel details, and a Wi-Fi hotspot for travelers.
