Worthy of the track
And worthy of note. The main attraction of a sports car is the engine. With the 2018 R8 Spyder, you have two options — a 5.2-liter V10 FSI engine which produces 532 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque, or an available 602-horsepower V10 engine which boasts 413 lb-ft of torque. Either way, the R8 Spyder underscores its motorsport heritage and cements its supercar status.

quattro® all-wheel drive
The R8 Spyder features a unique application of quattro®, which emulates a rear-wheel drive vehicle, but with the ability to send up to 100% of available torque to the front axle, depending on the driving situation. This is made possible by advanced technologies, like the electronically controlled hydraulic multi-plate clutch, the addition of torque vectoring and quattro® integration within the Audi drive select system.
Choose your own adventure
Audi drive select on the Audi R8 Spyder lets you choose between a range of variable handling settings through control of the quattro® all-wheel drive system, and other drivetrain and running gear components. Select your preference from up to four modes: Comfort, Auto, Dynamic and Individual.
