early last year, at the Geneva motor show, Audi unveiled to the world a renewal that has been ringing in our heads, the Audi R8 2015. It already starts to circulate through our country, however the family is not complete, as missing by getting units like this Audi R8 Spyder, 2016 that once more it has been discovered.
Spain once again chosen as the test scenario of the brands
Spain, with its good roads and good weather, has been a witness of much of the fine tuning of the R8 Spyder. On this occasion we see it covered once more by a large quantity of vinyl of camouflage, although guess perfectly the final design that will look the convertible version of this supercar German.
The differences will not be very large with respect to the version of the hardtop. Obviously the soft top and the top rear of the same, special mention to the sticker, how do I drive? Will be the only cosmetic changes are expected. The income of this system means an increase of 50 pounds with regard to the R8 conventional.
The excess weight required by the drive system and the reinforcement bars, shall be compensated by the engine, which is still showing the same two configurations that we already know. A V10 naturally aspirated 5,2-litre capable of delivering a 540 and 610 HP. The latter corresponds to the version R8 Plus.
Obviously there will be loss of performance, but we do not believe that it will be very exaggerated, just a few tenths of a second in the 0 to 100 Km/h, and secure the same top-end speed, but yeah, it will take longer to achieve. The same thing happens with the automatic sports seven speeds, which will be the only option of change possible.
a Few figures these from Audi with the sticker of how I drive?
As we have already said the Audi R8 Spyder, 2016 should see the light during the first quarter of next year. More time should elapse so that we can see the natural, although it has already been discovered almost completely, the Audi R8 e-tron. The version fully electric, which has already been allowed to see at the Nürburgring.
