Audi launches the R8 Spyder

After launching the R8 V10 in January, Audi has now brought in the R8 Spyder. The Ingolstadt based manufacturer has been doing some serious catching up with its German rival as the R8 Spyder is the third launch this year. The R8 Spyder costs Rs 1,47,22,000 (ex-showroom, Maharashtra) and will be available at all the Audi dealership outlets in India from April 2011. 

The Audi R8 Spyder comes with a 5.2 FSI engine which churns out 525bhp of power at 8000rpm and comes with R Tronic six-speed sequential transmission as an option.  The soft top weighs a merge 42kg and doesn’t affect the centre of gravity of the car. With the standard electro hydraulic motor, the top opens and closes within 19 seconds, even while driving at speeds up to 50 km/h.

With this launch, Audi now offers all the variants of the R8 in the Indian market. At the launch Michael Perschke, Head, Audi India commented, “I am confident that this high performance sports car will allow us to further build upon our leadership position in the super sports car segment in India and the maintain the iconic position of the R8 in India.”
