The 2018 Audi R8 Spyder can generate speed up to 198 mph. This indeed speaks a lot about its potential! Just like the standard version, it comes with a V10 engine (5.2-liter). It again generates somewhere close to 540 horsepower along with a torque of 398 pound-feet. It takes the help of an automatic transmission system (dual clutch seven-speed), and its eventual driving force is generated from all 4 wheels for almost all the time.

As per the modern standards, the 2018 Spyder version is quite svelte! And this is indeed an advantage when you are looking to pick up some real speed. Moreover, its folding top is less than hundred pounds. On the other hand, usage of aluminum to a great extent is also an important reason for it being lighter and faster than most other cars. You will also like the controls and switches of this car which are pretty angular and funky.
