Audi R8 Spider
Audi R8 Spider
Audi designed the R8 from the outset in the full knowledge that there would be a convertible version, so it should come as no surprise that the styling looks rather pleasingly resolved. From an engineering standpoint, however, removing the roof from a coupé is not usually something that can be done without compromise, and the same is true enough in this case. The R8 is heavier and less rigid  than the coupé that spawned it. That aside, the R8 Spyder is very much the mid-engined, four-wheel-drive R8 we know and, for the most part, love. At launch, only the V10 engine variant was offered (the V8 followed once the queue for V10s shortened), available, as in the coupé, with either a six-speed manual or the R-tronic robotised manual gearbox – the latter in effect the same as Lamborghini’s e-gear. At speed the hood proves well insulated, to the extent that it’s good for a claimed 195mph and, barring some turbulence from towards the rear of the roof, the R8 Spyder is rarely louder than the coupé. The benefit, of course, is that with the hood down there is all the more opportunity to hear the V10’s vocal range. It’s not an engine whose complex character changes significantly with revs or throttle, but when all is said and done it does have 10 cylinders, very large exhausts and the capacity to rev to the other side of 8000rpm.
