AUDI adds R8 V8 Spyder to Performance Lineup

My Drive – Audi Australia is adding a new variant to its R8 high-performance sports car lineup. Hot on the heels of the R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI quattro comes an additional variant – this time with a 4.2-litre V8 engine.

  • New R8 Spyder 4.2 FSI quattro completes local R8 Spyder line-up
  • V8 engine with 316 kW, quattro all-wheel drive standard
  • Lightweight and quiet cloth top with electrohydraulic drive

The R8 Spyder’s 4.2-litre FSI produces 316 kW and launches the open-top two-seater to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 300 km/h. The engine is mated to either a six-speed manual or R tronic sequential manual gearbox and quattro permanent all-wheel drive is standard.

Available only by special customer order, the first Australian vehicles will arrive in mid-2012, with a Manufacturer List Price (MLP) of $300,400 (6-speed manual) and $316,400 (R tronic). The R8 Spyder 4.2 will feature a similarly high level of equipment that can be found on the corresponding R8 4.2 Coupe.

These include the following highlights:

  • 19-inch 5-twin spoke design alloy wheels
  • Audi magnetic ride
  • Audi parking system advance with rear view camera
  • Metallic paint
  • Xenon headlights with LED daytime driving lights
  • Sport seats upholstered in Alcantara leather
  • Wind breaker
