It is almost summer and the perfect time for the release of the Audi R8 Spyder. If you are looking for an expensive car with an open top roof then this new Audi is sure to tick all your boxes. This car has had many people waiting in anticipation and now that it has arrived it won’t disappoint. Such is the demand for this car that 200 have been sold even before it hit the showrooms; there is now over a year waiting time for anyone wanting to get their hands on this next model. If you haven’t already landed one of these cars you can probably forget about driving around in one this summer.
The Design of the Audi R8 Spyder
The design of the Audi R8 is something really special. This is not the type of car you should consider driving if you want to get from A to B anonymously. This car may as well have a huge loud speaker on the back announcing ‘look at me’, because that is what people will be doing when you drive this car. It is a beauty and a complete head turner. The amazing thing is that the Audi R8 Spyder looks even better than what its most fanatical supporters were prophesising; you could take a picture of this car and stick on your wall and people would gather round to admire it.
Under the Hood
Under the hood you will find a 5 litre direct injection V10 engine that is capable of producing 525bhp. All this power is sent to the four wheels; with a bit more being directed at the rear wheels. This is a serious engine and proof that the R8 Spyder is more than just a beautiful looking car. The car has an added athletic feel to it because it is built with lightweight materials.
Inside the Audi R8 Spyder
The new Spyder is a two-seater, but Audi make no pretentions of this being a family car. This is the type of vehicle that is all about freedom and hedonism; the sort of thing you should hopefully put behind you while bringing up a family. On the other hand, there will be people with families who can afford to purchase a car like this purely for a bit of self-pampering; something to drive when they want to get away from all those responsibilities.
Some Final Thoughts
This is an expensive car that is probably worth every penny for those in the market for such a vehicle. It is beautifully designed and has the power under the hood to make it a serious driver’s choice. Audi have certainly created a winner with this one, and it is will probably be the most talked about car of 2010. Unfortunately the closest most of us will get to this car is to admire it, but that is OK. Some expensive cars can make the driver look a bit arrogant and boastful, but the Audi R8 just leaves you admiring their great taste in cars.
