Audi has offered up the starting price of the slick looking R8 V10 spyder. The car will start at $176,350. That is certainly not an affordable car costing more than most of our homes, but it is a bright in line with the competition. The car has a 5.2L V10 making 540hp and 398 lb-ft of torque.
That power goes to the road via a 7-speed S-tronic flappy paddle gearbox. The R8 Spyder can hit 60mph in 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of 198 mph. That is fast with the top down. The Spyder has aluminum and carbon fiber intensive structure to allow it to keep its rigidity with the top down. Audi says that the new R8 Spyder is 50% stiffer than the last generation Spyder.
The car also features a 12.3-inch virtual cockpit display that gives important info to the driver. Audi fits the car with 4G LTE and WiFi hotspot for passengers. I said “starts” at $176,350 but that price seems all-inclusive said to include tax, title, and license according to MotorTrend.Filed Under: Auto News
