Audi R8 Spyder V10 Plus breaks cover

Audi R8 Spyder V10 Plus breaks cover

Audi has just revealed the R8 Spyder in the most potent Plus guise. The R8 Spyder Plus becomes the fastest convertible to roll out of Ingolstadt. “The R8 Spyder V10 Plus completes the R8 model line,” says Audi. 

The R8 Spyder V10 Plus is powered by the same mid-mounted naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 powerplant which is famous for being Audi’s most powerful series-production engine. The power bump of 70bhp over the standard Spyder brings the total to 602bhp while the 560Nm of raw torque is attainable at 6,500rpm. All the mad power is sent to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system via a seven-speed dual clutch transmission.

Keeping up with the ‘fastest convertible Audi’ title, the Spyder Plus will accelerate to 100kmph from standstill in mere 3.3 seconds and go all the way to a top speed of 328 kmph. The go-fast cause is helped by the fact that the Plus treatment helps the car lose 25kg of weight over the standard Spyder, as it tips the scale at 1,587kg thanks to the use of exotic materials like carbon-fibre reinforced plastics and aluminium components.

Similar to the Coupe Plus, the Spyder sports a large carbon fibre front splitters with a gloss black grille. The massive diffuser at the back is capable of generating 100kg of downforce. There’s a carbon fibre lip spoiler as well, while black chrome 19-inch lightweight aluminium wheels come as standard fitment.  

Exclusive to the V10 Spyder plus is the new Micrommata Green body paint, in addition to 11 other paint schemes with matte-effect as well. The soft-top is available in three colours. The other exterior bits of the Plus treatment is finished in anthracite black. The cabin gets Nappa leather upholstery with bucket seats as standard. Audi’s 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit is also part of the package with Audi Drive Select.

Prices for the Audi R8 V10 Spyder Plus begin from €207,500 (€17,000 premium over the regular R8 V10 Spyder) in Germany, where it will be built at the carmaker’s Böllinger Höfe production facility. The Ingolstadt-based carmaker will not make any more addition to the R8 V10 range, contrary to the rumours of a hardcore variant with the likes of Lamborghini Huracan Performante.
