Audi R8 V10 Spider, new photos
I have already presented in a previous post the latest ground-ground missile from Audi, the version of the sublime R8 Spider. It is time to explore a little deeper.
To cap the range R8 V10 Spider version 5.2 is very strong. The 525 HP are present, and the V10 from the Gallardo wants more enjoyable and musical with the removal of the roof. Transmissions offered are identical to the coupe, with the robotized gearbox with double clutch or manual version. Personally I particularly the latter, mainly because of the aluminum grille sumptuous.
The engine is not particularly worth it, because thanks to the efforts of engineers, spider version takes only ten pounds: extensive use of aluminum, carbon and composite including the top mechanism borrowed from Lamborghini, new lighter rims. A feat that allows the R8 Spider atomizes 0 to 100 Km / h in less than 4.5 s, and hangs a good 313 km / h. Not bad for a convertible!
1720Kg with the R8 Spider is not a ballerina, so do not compare to a Ferrari 430 Scudery 16M F for example. However, what it loses in efficiency, it gains in comfort and luxury. And it’s tempting, I must admit, even with a call price of € 154,000.
