The engineers at Audi have tried to control the extra weight inherent in a convertible version incorporating a sunroof light fabric, powered by a hydraulic mechanism Electrico-operable up to a speed of 50 km / h, which allows cover the vehicle in 20 seconds. The set displays a weight of 1612 kg.
Enough to propel the car from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.6 seconds and reach 318 km / h top speed. The additional 158 kilos, which bring the total weight of the car to 1612 kilos without the full, do not prevent Audi boast a relief 113 kilos compared to the previous R8 Spyder V10.
As usual with Audi, no hardtop roadster but a pretty well integrated canvas canopy which does not denature the line once in place and keeps the cantilever content. The soft top is of course motorized and its handling requires only 20 seconds. The operation is achieved by rolling up to a speed of 50 km / h maximum.
With a time of 3,6s at 0 to 100 km / h, the R8 Spyder is hardly less powerful than his sis fixed roof (+ 0.1s) .and 5 km / h less than the equivalent coupe. Roll with the wind will bring more excitement (if necessary) but also the opportunity to enjoy more of vocals shared with the V10 Lamborghini Huracan. Consumption is announced at 11.7 L / 100km 227 g / km of CO2.
