luckily for us, today we have a wide variety of cars. A multitude of sizes, segments, brands, and products. The misfortune is that, in the end, the vast majority are simply cars to go from point a To point B, which tend not to be designed for the enjoyment of driving. In addition, the few that are saved, will cost more than the 99.9% of society can pay. For that 1 % there are more interesting, such as, for example, the Audi R8.
so far, the super sports car Audi sold in two versions, V10 and V10 Plus. Both share the same block of 5.2 liters and 10 cylinders of intake air, that in the case of the V10 makes 540 HP and Plus growing up to 610. In addition, there are a body coupe and another convertible called the Spyder. The Spyder had to “settle” just with the mechanical version less powerful… until now. The German brand has just announced the Audi R8 Spyder V10 Plus.
The formula has been very simple: to place an Audi R8 Spyder V10 all the elements of the Plus version of the body closed. We find a convertible that pays 610 HP plus 560 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. The cutting power is 8.700, very high up.
With all of this, and thanks to the impeccable work of the electronic, system quattro and the fantastic gearbox S tronic 7-speed, the Audi R8 Spyder V10 Plus performed the 0 to 100 in only 3,3 seconds; he can also reach a top speed of 328 km/h. Do you ask for your power to weight ratio? 2,78 kg/CV. Yes, only weighs 1.695 kg. Do you also interested in your consumption approved? 12,5 l/100 km
Improvements and additives “Plus”
The Audi R8 Spyder V10 Plus body added to the V10 “normal” much more than 70 HP. We find a disc brake system-ceramic of series, whose diameter is 380 mm at the front axle and 365 in the rear. The forwards are bitten by six-piston calipers and the rear of four. The drive system quattro is able to distribute and send all the energy of the engine to a single shaft depending on each operating condition, by sending the 100 % only in extreme situations.
Optionally, we can acquire a suspension, Magnetic Ride that will make your chassis more hard or more soft depending on the conditions and the driving mode selected. Also shape optional we may choose a system of sports exhaust with valves that, depending on our tastes, will allow a sound more or less powerful.
the hood of The Audi R8 Spyder V10 Plus
The canopy of this extreme version of the supercar German is identical to that used in the version “less” powerful. It is canvas, but its entire structure and mechanisms have been made in aluminum and magnesium, weighing only 44 pounds. Takes 20 seconds to open and close, or to fold and unfold, as whatever you prefer to call it; while we can perform the speed-up always and when circulemos less than 50 km/h.
Still unknown is the price that will have on the Spanish market, but in Germany will start in the 207.500 € . With this, we can imagine that the starting price for Spain will be, at least, 220.000 euros. The Audi R8 Spyder V10 Plus will start to sell after the summer, so we can already go saving…
