Born of powerful ideas.
Designing a top-end sports car is one of the greatest challenges in car design. It is where technical precision and performance are stretched to the very limits of feasibility. In the Audi R8, our designers and developers have succeeded in creating a car which in every respect embodies our striving for automotive perfection.
The Audi R8 bears the four rings on its bonnet. These, together with the large air intakes and the slim, sporty Audi Singleframe leave you in no doubt: you are looking at a performance-oriented sports car.
The rear spoiler is automatically extended at 100 km/h and is retracted sleekly back into the vehicle silhouette at 35 km/h. If desired, the spoiler can also be operated manually by pressing a button.
The headlights with LED daytime running lights give the R8 Coupé 4.2 FSI quattro® a striking appearance. The characteristic rear lights, also LED technology, represent the optimum in engineering expertise.
Opening up possibilities –even when closed.
A unique car like the R8 Coupé cannot be improved. However, it may be changed: for new perspectives and even more freedom. Get ready to meet an extraordinary car: The Audi R8 Spyder, the open high-performance sports car. Powerful. Dynamic. Extrovert. A spyder which fulfils expectations of performance and the high demands of the Audi brand: to build one of the most breathtaking vehicles of its class.
Sovereign performance is our foremost priority.
Yet we have moved it backwards.
The sporty dominance of the front of the Audi R8 Spyder and the powerful and muscular form of the rear will win you over – even when the hood is open. The strikingly formed wings and distinctive trailing edge skilfully draw attention to the Audi R8 Spyder rear. The engine sound emphasises the potential of the mid-engine in an impressive manner.
The characteristic Audi Singleframe signals unrestrained forward thrust. The large air outlets in aluminium look on the hood compartment cover quote the shapes of classic racing cars. The dual-branch exhaust system rounds off this high-performance vehicle in a fitting manner.
The polished, two-tone forged aluminium wheels in 10-spoke Y design underline the extravagance of the Audi R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI quattro®. The all-LED headlights (standard on the R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI quattro®) in futuristic design create a brightness close to that of daylight and are unique in the sports car segment.
High-revving concept (HRC). The meaning behind this technical term is pure driving enjoyment derived directly from motorsport. The high-rev concept in the V8 and V10 mid-engines of the Audi R8 works according to a simple principle.
An increased number of combustion processes in the cylinders creates more power and therefore a greater power yield. With the V10 engine, for example, the maximum speed is at an impressive 8,700 rpm and its maximum power output is 386 kW. Yet, even at low speeds, the long-stroke units drive powerfully forward. The torque curve of the V10 power unit reaches a maximum value of a full 530 Nm. In the R8 Coupé 5.2 quattro®, this will enable you to spurt from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds and only 8.1* seconds later
you have already reached 200 km/h. The propulsion only ends at 316 km/h. With 4.1 seconds for the spurt from 0 to 100 km/h and a maximum speed of 313 km/h, the R8 Spyder with a 10-cylinder engine variant is almost equal.
The resulting vibrational and thermal stresses are restrained by the compact, high-strength design of the lightweight aluminium engines. In conjunction with the dry sump lubrication used in motorsport, high lateral acceleration forces are also possible. Instead of a conventional deep oil sump, an oil pump module and a separate oil tank ensure that the oil supply to the engine iseven, so that you can fully enjoy every second of the torque and agility of the Audi R8.
In addition to the high-rev concept, this is the second component for the irresistible forward movement of the R8 models: FSI®. This fuel injection technology, which we have also brought from the racing track to the road, works in both engine variants.
The FSI technology directly injects the fuel into the combustion chamber where it is highly compressed. This produces a very even fuel/air mixture, leading to particularly efficient combustion and therefore to better power delivery and power yield.
The V8 power unit in the Audi R8 reaches its maximum torque of 430 Nm between 4,500 and 6,000 rpm with 90% of the power already being available at a wider speed range between 3,500 and 7,500 rpm. This power lets the R8 Coupé accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds and the R8 Spyder in 4.8 seconds. Moreover, the mid-engine sports car design causes the mass of the vehicle to be concentrated close to its centre of gravity, resulting in very good distribution of axle load and a balanced driving performance. The performance of both engines with their spontaneous responsiveness, the even power delivery and enormous speed willingness is accentuated by a powerful sound backdrop that will thrill you over the entire rev range.
If you want to talk to us about innovation,
talk to your belt.
For the improved communication via voice control system or hands-free facility of the optional Bluetooth interface or mobile phone fitting, and in addition to the microphone in the interior lighting module, we have integrated 3 microphones into each seatbelt of the driver and the front passenger. This new position ensures a speaking distance as close as possible of only 10-15 cm and therefore provides much better voice quality and that the speaker can be easily understood – in the R8 Spyder even when the hood is open.

Efficiency: standard in every Audi.
Vorsprung Dutch Technique is the claim to which the Audi brand is committed. It includes giving careful consideration time and again to each droplet of fuel. For many years, Audi has been translating this claim into tangible reality on all its models –and as a developer of numerous innovations is having a lasting influence on efficiency standards in automotive engineering. Whether with the TDI, FSIR, and TFSIR engine concepts, with transmission technologies or with the Audi Space Frame (ASF). To achieve on-going improvements in energy consumption, a number of intelligent efficiency measures – specially tailored to each vehicle – are combined. Efficiency with a methodical approach – individual and standard. A commitment which is already leading to convincing results. Audi already has many models in its current range that emit less than 140 g CO2.
/ Km .An effective way of reducing emissions. And just as impressive as the fact that a large proportion of Audi vehicles already meet the strict EU5 emissions standard.All this demonstrates the know-how of Audi – and is what drives us on every day to harmonise sportiness and efficiency in the future.
