In a world full of turbocharged engines Audi has kept the naturally breathing V10, delivering the crisp throttle response and engine growl expected from their top line car.
"Our new R8 line is the sporty vanguard of Audi," remarked Board Member for Development Dr.-Ing. Stefan Knirsch. "Following on from the Coupé, we are now bringing out the second generation of the R8 Spyder. The open high-performance sports car delivers thrillingly captivating performance and gives the driver an even more direct experience of the V10 naturally aspirated engine's unmistakable sound."
