When it comes to sports cars that not only perform on the road and on the track, but also look good, one of the main things that many people will look for is a convertible option, to enjoy the wind in their hair behind a very good car. This is what the Spyder version of the Audi R8 delivers, and both in the V8 and v10 ranges of the car there is a Spyder variant for those who are looking for the convertible option.
The Audi R8 is certainly one of the most popular and attractive sports cars to have been developed and sold in the 00s, and being of German origin it also offered a lot in terms of the specifications of the cars to go with the good looks, because after all what is under the bonnet will have a large impact on why people actually choose the cars they do.
Both engine options for the Audi R8 have plenty to offer the driver, with the 4.2 liter v8 providing plenty of power for swift acceleration up to the top speed of 187 mph, with the larger 5.2 liter v10 version adding an extra 10 mph to their top speed, leaving it verging on 200 mph. While its fair to say that most Audi R8′s will never be taken up to those speeds, having such performance under the bonnet is certainly an attractive prospect, and combined with the cabriolet of the Spyder options makes for a very attractive package.
One of the interesting things about the Audi R8 Spyder, indeed all the variants of the R8 is that the Audi group is also under the same umbrella organization as Lamborghini, which has led to the gearbox transmissions in the R8 actually being sourced from Lamborghini, and offering paddle change options as well as the more traditional manual transmission options.

It is reasonable to say that the Audi R8 Spyder has proved itself to be a very desirable car, and one which has really advanced the reputation of Audi and especially their sports cars, following on from the success achieved with the smaller model Audi TT. The R8 is a car which has propelled Audi from just being another German car manufacturer to one which does some exceptional cars as well as doing the basics well.
This isn’t to say that the Audi R8 Spyder is the perfect car for everyone, as there may have to be a choice made between the girlfriend and the golf clubs in terms of which can be taken in the car, as there isn’t much storage space, but for a high level two seater cabriolet sports car, the Spyder is one of the best options on the market, providing a great balance between desirability and German reliability.
