Summary:

Audi R8 Spyder is a stylish looking, performance oriented supercar with no hard criticism and good customer trust. It also cost lower than competitors in the same class, and you won't be disappointed with the equipment.

Having strengthened its place as one of the most sensational in handling and usability, the Audi R8 Spyder comes with a fabric and folding roof that brings excitement, while also allowing for the glorious noise of the engines when revved up.

Different from the coupe without the high performance, it comes with a 5.2 liter V10 or a 4.2 liter V8 engines. You can choose between the 7 – speed S tronic auto or the standard manual. With the S tronic, you can be in total control of the gearshifts when you want to enjoy its full power.

Power and Performance

With its two engines: the 5.2 V10 and the 4.2 V8 you can enjoy maximum speed, pace and power of the R8 Spyder in just a matter of seconds. Even the V8 that is less powerful can be intensely very fast, sprinting to speeds of 62mph in 5 seconds. The V10 is entirely a different beast altogether in power and speed. It is the optional S tronic semi-auto with the R8 Spyder that makes the cut though.

In addition to speed, the R8 Spyder has great cornering grip and so it is safe. The noise from any of the engines are powerful especially the V10 when revved up, they also seem quite when cruising.

Interior & Exterior

The interior of the cabin is spacious enough for two, with great visibility and a lower driving position makes the Spyder amazing to be in too. The onscreen menus provide neat car controls. The roof is impressively electric, and with a sloppy bonnet, you have a wide view of the road in front. The Spyder is a great companion for long distant journeys, though with limited space for luggage.

On the exterior, folding out the roof of the Spyder makes the car look dramatic. There has been the addition of silver vents along the buttresses. Also, the major difference between the V10 and the V8 is the delicate V10 badge, as well as the 2 oval tailpes.

Safety and Reliability

Audi, the makers of Spyder are reputed to be reliable, and know how to make qualitative cars. The Spyder isn’t different in this regard. The super car comes along with four airbags and cool electronically powered driver aids.

However, aside the standard built in safety aids in the Spyder, its immensely powerful braking system is second to none. The security here is as good as any other car in its class

The four wheel drive system also provides plenty grip and fierce acceleration. The retractable windscreen on the rear gives you full effect when you have the roof on. With great suspension that is a bit softer than you have on the coupe, its corners are also precise and flat too.

eBest Cars Verdict

The R8 Spyder has every essential you could desire in a super car, cozy leather interior, climate control, satellite navigation, alloy wheels of 19 inches as well as optional personalized features you could add. This super car is worth whatever is spent on acquiring it.

Audi R8 Spyder is a stylish looking, performance oriented supercar with no hard criticism and good customer trust. It also cost lower than competitors in the same class, and you won't be disappointed with the equipment.
