The MotorWeek award adds to a long list of international consumer and media honors bestowed on the high-performance Audi R8 lineup since its introduction in 2006. Despite being 5 years in the market, it still look as stunning as ever and will most likely go down in history as one of the all time classics. The R8 Spyder is crafted by the same designers who created the Le Mans-winning prototypes. From its wide stance to the artful integration of exclusive materials like carbon fiber, the R8 Spyder is truly poetry in motion.
Powering the R8 Spyder quattro is the soul stirring 525 hp 5.2 FSI V10 engine. Displayed under a transparent panel and nestled within a Carbon Fiber Sigma engine bay, the V10 reaches an astronomical 8700 rpm and propels the R8 Spyder 5.2 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds with a top track speed of 196.4 mph. This same engine is used in the R8 LMS GT3 race car. Although the R8 Spyder 5.2 is a convertible, it's still very much designed for speed. In fact, the specially designed Acoustic top incorporates three-layers of insulation comparable to a traditional hard top. In addition, the top is capable of retracting in 19 seconds at speeds up to 31 mph.
