V10 plus

The maximum torque is 560 Nm at a power of 449 kW. The Audi R8 Spyder V10 plus delivers pure performance on the road: it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds, reaching a top speed of 328 km/h. Thanks to dry sump lubrication drawn from the world of motorsports, it maintains agility, even on challenging corners. To make your heart beat faster.


The 5.2 FSI engine propels the R8 Spyder V10 from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds with 397 kW (540 hp). The maximum torque is 540 Nm. From this state, the 200 km/h mark is broken in 11.8 seconds. Propulsion ends at a speed of 318 km/h. The power of the V10 engine cannot only be felt but also heard: the striking engine sound makes an impressive acoustic statement.

The quattro drive train

quattro stands for excellent traction, enhanced driving dynamics and increased driving safety. Hardly any other drive brings the power of the engine to the road so confidently. Behind the powerful V10 sits a quick-as-lightning, electrically controlled seven-speed S tronic. It directs the power to the newly designed quattro drive. The electronically controlled and hydraulically actuated multi-plate clutch at the front and a mechanical limited slip differential on the rear axle allow a controllable and sporty driving behaviour combined with excellent traction. The drive torque can be distributed variably between the front and rear axles as necessary.

Depending on the weather and road situation, the all-wheel drive can additionally be modified with Audi drive select. In the four modes comfort, auto, dynamic and individual, the R8 Spyder V10 displays its different character traits: from everyday companion to a confident turning assistant on mountain roads. Even more versatile is the handling in the optional Performance mode. With the three driving modes dry, wet and snow, you can tailor the driving characteristics to specific driving conditions.

The chassis

The sports suspension in the R8 Spyder V10 allows a sporty and confident driving behaviour. As front and rear suspension, a double wishbone suspension is used - freedom of kinematics, a high-precision wheel guidance and excellent agility are the result. Motorsport genes are identifiable. The electromechanical power steering mediates narrow road contact using its finely differentiated feedback. Alternatively, you can select dynamic steering. You change the transmission function according to the speed and this simultaneously adjusts the steering torque accordingly.
