All-New 2017 Audi R8 V10 Spyder Revealed

The new Audi R8 V10 Spyder is here, and it's enough to get your heart beating faster just looking at it. This droptop supercar shares a foundation with the R8 LMS GT3 racecar and the Lamborghini Huracan, and after this year's redesign, it's 50-percent stiffer than its predecessor for a more dynamic driving experience.

Every material used in the new R8 Spyder was carefully considered to keep weight low and speed up, from the forged aluminum control arms to the cloth roof to the aluminum chassis and judicious use of carbon fiber. The cockpit is placed close to the front of the vehicle to keep the center of gravity low.

The new R8 Spyder shares an engine with the coupe variant.

  • Naturally-aspirated 5.2L V10
    • 540 HP
    • 398 lb.-ft. torque

  • Seven-speed S-tronic® dual-clutch transmission
  • quattro® all-wheel drive, which can direct 100% power to either front or rear wheels as needed

Inside, the cockpit is very reminiscent of a racecar in shape, but provides pure luxury in the driver-focused technology and attention to detail.
