Audi R8 V10 Spyder Brings Some Great Tech Inside for Its UK Debut
2017 Audi R8 V10 Spyder — Concurrent with the Beijing auto show, the new Audi R8 V10 Spyder revealed in the UK for the first time along with the TT RS. Claimed to be more powerful and faster than its predecessor, at least on the paper, this is the most advanced, fastest open-top version of the R8, which included some interesting technologies that will be accepted at any car despite being finished in odd custard yellow.
2017 Audi R8 V10 Spyder Specifications
The 2017 Audi R8 V10 Spyder model also uses a canvas roof to be folded neatly under a retractable panel over the engine and behind the passenger compartment. It also has two buttresses ventilated on both sides similar to the previous model. The roof can be opened and closed automatically by pressing a button. It can be opened and closed when the car is running in maximum speed of 50 kilometers per hour (31 mph) in just 20 seconds.
Most of the open-top car can get their stiffness and loss of the roof structure. The lack of roof also means that there will only be a little more space for mounting the speaker. But Audi has got around this by installing them on the chair. They put speaker in the headrest for better and depth audio experience.
Audi also transfer machine ventilation from the top of the trunk lid in the coupe version to the taillights on the Spyder, while the remaining details about the car remain unchanged. The new 2017 Audi R8 Spyder weighs 113 kg less than the predecessor, in which the torsion rigidity is 50 per cent better than before. This is mainly due to extra bracing with some reinforcements made to the sills, windscreen frame and pillars.
As found in Lamborghini Huracan, V10 also uses an aluminum space frame chassis and hybrid carbon-fibre. This significantly makes R8 Spider quite heavy, with 1612 kg overall weight which is 158 kg more than the coupe.
New Audi R8 V10 Spyder relies on petrol engine with a capacity of 5.2 liter naturally aspirated (NA). The power is up to 540 hp and maximum torque reaches 540 nm (398 lb / ft). it used drive system for all four wheels and a seven-speed automatic transmission to combine the engine.
