R8 Spy­der price tag

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors -

Audi’s lat­est R8 Spy­der su­per­car is now up for grabs - at a hefty £129,990.

The new ad­di­tion to the sec­ond gen­er­a­tion R8 line-up has a fab­ric hood that can open in 20 sec­onds so oc­cu­pants can en­joy the car’s throaty V10 sound­track.

Per­for­mance fig­ures see the 540PS Spy­der ca­pa­ble of blast­ing from 0-62 in 3.6 sec­onds and on to a top speed of 197mph, while fuel econ­omy is an aver­age 24.1mpg.

Audi says the car’s ground-up re­work brings it very much up to date not only by adding more power, but also new fea­tures like the fully dig­i­tal Audi Vir­tual Cock­pit, the Audi smart­phone in­ter­face and in­ter­net-based Audi Con­nect ser­vices.
