Striking style, singular grip

Similar to its singular performance, the Audi R8 Spyder features a unique application of quattro® technology, which emulates a rear-wheel drive vehicle, but with the ability to send up to 100% of available torque to the front axle, depending on the driving situation.

Born on the track — built for the road

The 2018 Audi R8 Spyder comes standard with Audi magnetic ride, which uses a synthetic blend of oils that contain tiny magnetic particles to create a magnetic field within the shock absorber. Several modes are offered to match your preference — choose between Dynamic, Comfort and Auto settings via Audi drive select.

A bold new vision

Available on the R8 V10 Spyder, full LED headlights with Audi laser light technology help you see things clearer.  When conditions permit, the Audi laser light modules activate, helping increase sight range. In addition, visual distinction is provided by anodized blue vertical strips within the headlights and dynamic turn signals.
