2017 Audi R8 V10 Spyder Starts At $176,350

The 2017 Audi R8 V10 Spyder, with its naturally-aspirated 540 horsepower 5.2-liter V10 engine mated to a seven-speed S-tronic® dual-clutch transmission that enables a 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds to a top speed of 198 mph, has a light 97 pound cloth roof that opens or closes in 20 seconds at speeds of up to 31 mph. The Audi R8 V10 Spyder has newly developed ASF® aluminum and carbon fiber construction that makes it more than 50 percent stiffer than its predecessor. The second generation R8 V10 Spyder features a quattro® system that by default delivers the majority of torque to the rear wheels, but under certain driving conditions can send up to 100 percent of all available torque to the front axle. The Audi R8 V10 Spyder with a fully digital Audi virtual cockpit starts at $176,350 (including $1,250 destination charge).
