The all-new drop-top 2017 Audi R8 Spyder is now available to order in the roadster-loving Great Britain. The new super car is priced from £129,990 which puts in the same category as many an excellent offerings from English and other German manufacturers.
To beat them for your money the 2017 Audi R8 Spyder relies many on its enticing blend of power, performance, and practicality. This is one of the very few super cars you can actually drive everyday if you want, and with the Spyder version you of course have the folding soft top which disappears in a mere 20 seconds and gives you access to the infinite sky.
Powering this technically brilliant but visually not so appealing exotic is a naturally aspirated V10 engine mated to a seven-speed S tronic transmission and a newly designed quattro drive system. It makes 540PS of power and 540 Nm (398.3 lb-ft) of torque which is enough for accelerating from 0 to 62mph in just 3.6 seconds and achieving a top speed of 197 mph. Meanwhile it returns an average fuel consumption of 24 mpg with 277 grams CO2 per kilometer.
The highlights of 2017 Audi R8 Spyder equipment-wise include the fully digital Audi Virtual Cockpit, the Audi smartphone interface and internet-based Audi Connect services.
