Those living in Australia and looking for some adrenaline rush, well now have their chance of buying the exquisite 2017 Audi R8 Spyder V10, an astonishing piece of German engineering, coming with advanced aerodynamics and sheer performance under the hood.
However, this ride won`t come cheap once arriving on the local market next month, as Australians will have to pay at least $388,500 for the R8 Spyder V10; on the other hand, the top of the line V10 Plus will kick off from $389,900.
But money won`t be an object for Audi enthusiasts looking for adrenaline rush, as they will have to cope with a massive 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10 monster engine, developing no less than 397 kW and 540 Nm of torque. That makes the R8 Spyder extremely fast from 0 to 100 km/h – just 3.6 seconds, at a topping of 318 km/h.
The performance levels are also achieved thanks to the car`s lightweight chassis. Also, with the roof down, the exciting drive can be reached thanks to the rear window, which can be sunk or extended to minimize the wind in the cabin.
Speaking of interior, the cabin is tweaked with the company`s latest 12.3-inch digital virtual cockpit with 3D graphics, adding as well MMI navigation and MMI touch. Other high-end features coming as standard refer to Bang & Olufsen sound system, loud speakers into the seats, voice command with microphones into the seatbelts, and so on.
