Stylish, aggressive looks, Quattro all-wheel drive and exceptional supercar performance - it's easy to see why the R8 is Audi's flagship sports car.
The Audi R8, based on the Audi Le Mans Quattro concept car, first appeared at the 2003 International Geneva Motor Show and the 2003 Frankfurt International Motor Show. The R8 road car was officially launched at the Paris Auto Show on 30 September 2006 drawing high praise from the motoring industry.
2010 saw the release of the R8 Spyder, sharing the same chassis of the Lamborghini Gallardo and a choice of either a 5.2L Quattro or 4.2L engine option. For head-turning design there’s very few cars better engineered for this than the R8 Spyder. The open-top two-seater took the flagship sports cars desirability to another level with its incredible performance, looks and build quality.
With ~518 BHP and a 0-60mph time of just ~3.7 seconds available from its thunderous V10, the R8 Spyder is a really powerful machine and its mainly thanks to the Audi magnetic ride technology and Quattro all-wheel drive that the car handles as well as it does.
With just one former owner, low mileage at ~20,383 on the clock and regular Audi dealership servicing through its life, the R8 Spyder is well worth a look if you are in the market for a great looking and great performance sports car.
