R8 is a great success for Audi. The 2011 Audi Spyder has allowed Audi to help raise the company profile. Furthermore, allowed it to enter the rarefied air of supercar segment. The newest version of V10 guise, coupe's Porsche-like high speed of 194 mph, where rapierlike hhandling goes without unmentioned, offers sporting credentials to Audi that it had not previously enjoyed. The bottom line is, it will not be 10 pistons, 525 high horsepower or for the matter even 4 seconds to take acceleration of 60 mph that would sell new convertible Audi supercar version.
Simply numbers, performance data or technical specification may seem impressive, but are not successful in capturing what exactly is needed for Spyder for reaching at the top. What's missing is the style. Pak your R8 at any sports car parking area and Audi is certain to attract just like the Ferrari 458 Italia or Lamborghini Gallardo.
The inside of Spyder is similar to coupe, which means long legged persons are going to have hard time accommodating. However, the seats are quite comfortable and adjustable, offering sufficient side bolstering. Soft-top, fortified in magnesium, remains stable and quiet even when the vehicle is speedy. At 80 mph, it is easy conversation is possible.
Most of Audi R8 Spyder interior features are quite similar to that of coupe. It means, Spyder too features 465 watts of Bang & Olufsen goodness with mated to about 12 speakers. It is not up to sonorific splendor that B&O system of A8 is. However, it proves sufficient enough for the R8's small cabin. The LCD screen of the navigation system is quite small, which further makes it difficult for viewing junctions and turnings. It features only 3.5 cubic feet cargo at the up front, which is as big as to accommodate two laptop bags only. Trip for two could be best reserved for a tropical climate.
Again like Audis, Spyder too surpasses the competition while speaking of finish and comfort inside the cabin. The seat is leather covered and comes in good quality too. Instrument gauge design seems to be pleasing and switchgear can be operated at ease. Audi Spyder has tightest grip between stowable roof and windshield frame, if compared to any recent convertible. For the Spyder's looks, you might consider going back to launch of Lamborghini Countach for getting a more of dramatic and positive response to the car. Spyder captures the adoration, the reason for which coupe version has remained famous. The sloping roof has been replaced in this new version with tonneau cover and soft-top. However, the side blades dominating coupe's side view are not present in this model and in its replacement is the great swallowing air in takers. However conventional they may look, they definitely are attractive too. Tonneau cover is an addition that gives aggressive appearance and features several vents on twin humps.
Anyone who is looking at R8 coupe ownership, but is enamored of the al fresco driving, is certainly going to be a fan. Nevertheless, anyone should be considering a Lamborghini, Porsche or Ferrari. Audi offers better performance and is excessively less expensive as compared to any of the above-mentioned Italian alternatives.
