When you want a preview of the most exotic, rare, and conceptualized cars, nothing compares to an international automotive show. With its evolving style and iconic history, the New York Auto Show remains one of the few places where enthusiasts and casual fans alike have the opportunity to explore the latest and greatest.
That exploration includes the new Audi R8 Spyder.
Unveiled at the New York Auto Show, the topless supercar stunned the world with its elegant, aggressive design that not only won diehard fanatics over, but also customers that are new to the brand. Add in its arresting shade of yellow to make the Spyder a supercar that attendees would surely not forget.
On its exterior, the Spyder mirrors the many gorgeous features as the hardtop supercar, such as large vents, curvy lines, and sharp angles. While the standard R8 looks incredible, the Spyder ups the ante by giving drivers the ability to enjoy its performance and, of course, unlimited headroom.
The Spyder also utilizes the same powertrain as its brother, the R8 Coupe:
- 2L V10
- 610 HP
- 413 lb.-ft. torque
- 0-62 in 3.6 seconds
- 197 MPH top speed
With these statistics and aesthetics, the Spyder is a supercar for the courageous and bold.
Still, the Spyder retains a position as an everyday car with its four-wheel-drive system and seven-speed S-Tronic dual clutch transmission that seamlessly shifts gears. And don’t forget, should all else not convince you of its superiority, utilize the power-folding cloth roof that closes in 20 seconds at speed of up to 31 MPH. It’ll remind you of the finer things in life.
While its performance and exterior design may be qualities to behold, drivers would be remiss to neglect the cabin. The supercar’s interior features an ergonomic layout with premium materials that promise a highly enjoyable space. In traditional Audi style, the Spyder hosts all of the latest technology features, such as the innovative Virtual Cockpit instrument cluster that groups infotainment and driving functions directly in front of the driver.
Choose between a base 18-way luxury seat and sportier racing seats because drivers can tailor the new Spyder to be their luxury car or their track monster.
