The new Audi R8 Spyder has been displayed at the Frankfurt Motor Show with many people heavily impressed. It is set to be the most expensive car ever made Audi when it is released costing a whooping £123,020.
For all of that money you would expect a terrific performance. There is a 5.2 Litre V10 8 cylinder engine installed that can produce a mighty 525bhp. Its 0-62mph time is just 4.1 seconds, putting it on par with plenty of other supercars out there. The Ferrari California is only slightly faster by 0.4 seconds when driving from 0-62mph. The car is not limited in terms of speed. It will be able to reach 197mph with the roof down which is said to be its maximum potential.
The R8 itself has a fantastic reputation already. Since its arrival, it has excited car fans all across the world with its stunning looks and breathtaking performance. The exterior is mainly hand built, making the car that extra bit special.
Being an Audi, it is fair to say that the Audi R8 Spyder will not let you down in terms of quality within the interior and excellence throughout its mechanical structure.
The car performs like a dream. Not just the speed but the handling is superb. The aluminium lightweight material helps reduce the drag, enhancing the driving experience. The Audi Quattro system that is built within provides a terrific all wheel drive system. The car grips the road well with its 19inch alloy wheels surrounded in high performance tyres.
You don’t just get performance and jaw dropping looks however; there is also a decent amount of practicality offered with the Audi R8 Spyder too. A generous amount of space is given throughout the car considering the class of the car. The sound system is also one of the best around. Bang & Olufsen sound systems produce top class sound quality.
The car makes other high end cars made by the manufacturer look fairly inexpensive. For £94,510 you are able to buy the Audi A8 L and the Audi Q7 will set you back £100,370. Some may say the latest edition to the R8 family is overpriced. However we believe the Audi R8 Spyder is worth every penny.
