The all-new Audi R8 Spyder has finally been showcased in all its glory at the 2016 New York Motor Show and it’s quite impressive.
Scheduled to go on sale later this year, the Audi R8 Spyder is sibling to the second-generation R8 coupe, which went on sale last year.
Ever since the vehicle was first announced, fans of the brand have been talking. Although not much has changed about the vehicle, as many of its components have been carried over from the original R8, the car is going to be a lot more exclusive.
The Audi R8 Spyder is much lighter than the R8, which results in a smoother driving experience.
The car comes with a powerful mid-mounted, naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 petrol engine capable of producing 532bhp.
Also featured is a fully automatic roof, reportedly capable of opening and closing in a mere 20 seconds at speeds of up to 31mph.
The car is expected to be quite powerful, which is definitely going to appeal to many people. Its fantastic appearance is also a great bonus.
There are many sports cars on the market at the moment so the new Audi R8 Spyder will have a lot of competition, but if the initial reactions are anything to go by, the car will experience success.
It is a complete package and that’s exactly what people interested in sports cars are after. Performance is one thing but if a vehicle doesn’t look aesthetically-appealing then it’s going to put a lot of people off. Fortunately, that’s not the case with the R8 Spyder so it will be interesting to see how well it does once it goes on sale later this year.
