UDI WANTS THE NEW R8 TO play in the big leagues. When the hard top was launched, there was no V8, straight away the V10, and the same strat­egy was adopted with the Spy­der as well.

Power comes from the same 5.2-litre nat­u­rally as­pi­rated unit, mak­ing 545 wild horses and 540Nm of torque, tamed by Qu­at­tro to get you to 100kmph in just 3.6 sec­onds and achieve a 317kmph top speed.

The chas­sis of the new R8 Spy­der is 50 per cent stiffer, gets 79.6 per cent of alu­minium in it and the rest is light­weight car­bon­fi­bre. The fab­ric top can open/shut in 20 sec­onds at speeds up to 50kmph.
