Who amongst us hasn’t longed for the opportunity to be able to operate a high performance automobile with substance and serious flash? For extraordinary power and performance from a stunning, agile and precise platform; consider your wish granted with the Audi R8 Spyder; it’s a supercar that committed drivers dream about.
Audi's R8 is tailored unlike anything else on the road, with sweeping arcs and muscular lines that are more suited to a concept car than one normally would expect from a production line. Timeless structuring has taken the place of massive wings and scoops, while luxury has replaced conciliation inside the typical supercar cockpit. Everything on the R8 Spyder is considered to be on the cutting edge of design.
The Audi R8 is a mid-engine, two-seater sports car, which uses Audi's trademark “quattro” full-time all-wheel drive system. This model was introduced by the German automaker Audi AG in 2006. The car was exclusively designed, developed, and manufactured by Audi AG's high performance private subsidiary company, quattro GmbH, and is based on the Lamborghini Gallardo platform. The fundamental construction of the R8 is based on the Audi Space Frame, and uses an aluminum monocoque which is built around space frame principles.
This is not, by all accounts, an uncompromising and hard-edged machine. It's an incredibly capable performance machine, yet every bit as luxurious as it is sporting. The high-class interior is laden with electronics and immersed in sumptuous leather. With the Lamborghini-sourced 5.2-liter, 525-hp DOHC V-10 with direct injection and matched to the R-Tronic six-speed sequential transmission; the R8 can compete with its most obvious rival, the Porsche 911 Turbo, along with a number of exotic Italians as well.
The Audi offered here comes loaded with a beautifully tailored power soft-top, sport seats, a driver oriented cockpit with complete analog instrumentation, multi-function three-spoke flat-bottom leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, air conditioning, Audi navigation system, factory alloy wheels, performance tires; power windows, locks, steering and ventilated four-wheel disc brakes.
Offered in original condition and nicely presented; this Audi R8 Spyder comes with the factory books and has accumulated extremely modest mileage over its five year life span. Overall, this car has it all and we encourage close inspection given its outstanding reputation, equipment and current condition. 2011 Audi R8 Spyder
