Most often than not, when you take the roof off the car, you end up with the compromised version of the original, but not with the Audi R8.
Well, we can all thank modern technical advancements for allowing us the option of the open-top supercars and that are just as good to drive as their fixed-roof counterparts, and even if we don’t have the necessary cash to buy one. The latest member of Audi R8 family is just that; the new R8 Spyder takes everything that’s great with a Coupe version and simply adds the experience and the pleasure only the absence of a roof can give you.
After all, this is one of a last naturally aspirated junior supercars one can buy these days, having the screaming V10 right behind a driver playing wonderful melodies and offering 533 horsepower to get you hooked. 0-62mph takes just 3.6 seconds with a top speed being 3 miles shy of the 200mph mark, at 197mph.
The transformation from Coupe to Spyder only added 110 lbs to a weight of it, with Audi claiming that when compared to its predecessor, the new R8 Spyder is the massive 55 percent stiffer.
This company even says that this is the stiffest convertible car you can buy, at any price point. Well, how does the new Audi R8 Spyder feel behind the wheel? Auto Express delivers their first driving impressions in this video.
