Description

Whatcar says…

"The R8 has everything you would expect from a supercar – staggering performance and brilliant handling – plus some things you might not, such as decent refinement and everyday usability.

The R8 comes with two engines: a 4.2 V8 or a barnstorming 5.2 V10 engine. Even the V8 is blisteringly fast, powering from 0-62mph in less than five seconds.

Thanks to bags of traction and strong cornering grip, the R8 can be driven safely as well as quickly. The suspension is taut, resulting in minimal body roll, yet the ride is surprisingly comfortable.

If you doubt whether an Audi badge can cut it in the supercar fraternity, then don’t – the R8 is as desirable as cars come, and that’s reflected in its rock-solid resale values.

Audi's Quattro four-wheel drive system and both the V8 and V10 engines are well proven. The low-slung driving position is spot-on, plus visibility is surprisingly good considering how low you are to the ground.

The roof is fully electric and – impressively – it can be opened and shut at speeds of up to 30mph. There’s plenty of leg and shoulder room."

 

TopGear says…

"The V8-engined version of the Audi R8 Spyder, but we see it as potentially the best R8 you can buy. How so? Well, the original R8 Coupe with the 4.2-litre V8 is arguably the sweetest of R8s,

Here, it’s mated to the six-speed manual gearbox, which doesn’t sound like a technical highlight when the R-tronic automated manual is offered but trust us, it delivers one of the most tactile, slick and satisfying shifts in production

One reason the R8 Spyder is such a close dynamic match for the Coupe is that it is an all-aluminium ASF (Audi Space Frame) design, like the A8 exec saloon. This means that the strength is in the superstructure, not the panels, and the Spyder has been designed to be exceptionally rigid without a roof.

Simply outstanding, it’s a fantastically poised and dynamic mid-engined car that blends inspiring, absorbing dynamics with suppleness and this despite it lacking the effective dual-setting magnetic dampers of the V10. The V8 Spyder weighs 60kg less than the V10 model, and when you tack keenly into a corner, it’s quite obvious that a chunk of that saving is behind you.

It’s plenty fast enough with the high-revving V8, too, and what a marvelously smooth, characterful and exciting engine it is.

Loses very little in terms of integrity and thus dynamic alacrity compared with the Coupe and feels more naturally dynamic than the V10."
