Audi has taken the next step in luxury vehicles with the new R8 V10 Plus Spyder. The R8 V10 Plus Spyder made its US debut at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, a world-renowned motorsports event featuring some of the world’s finest and rarest collections of automobiles. Those who attended were astonished by the exquisite design of the new model.
The R8 is the ultimate realm of performance for Audi, with no other model coming closer in a tie to racing. Featuring the same naturally-aspirated V10 engine found in the R8 LMS racecar, the R8 is the best representation of how the production models benefit from developments and technologies first used in motorsports. The R8 V10 plus Spyder has a naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine and seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission. The new model reaches 60 mph in 3.3 seconds, making it the fastest production convertible model Audi has ever produced.
