R8 Spyder GT is the most expensive road car in the Audi before, which valued £ 158,145 nan despite costing more than £ 40,000 more than the standard V10 Spyder. Audi engineers have removed the 85kg to bring the car to a still fairly large 1640 kg by, among others, uses a carbon fiber splitter and front and rear spoiler, which is now fixed. But the biggest weight savings achieved with bucket seats, which is 35kg lighter than the standard.
Carbon ceramic brakes are also helping to reduce bulk and provide fade-free stopping power. Other mechanical changes include traditional spring suspension set-up that sits 10mm lower than the variable Magnetic Ride system that standard V10. It also gets the R tronic single-clutch automatic gearbox, which feels a little old-fashioned next to the latest dual-clutch system.
Finally, there is a small engine upgrade, with a 5.2 liter V10 power from 35bhp to 553bhp by. Combined with the weight savings, it provides an increase in top speed of 3mph to 197mph and 0-62mph time cut away by a 3/10 to 3.8 seconds. But while this increase in performance can mean the difference between winning or losing a game Top Trumps, it turns out they are difficult to distinguish. And that brings us to the point.
So while it might be great to drive, the R8 Spyder GT a little more than a marketing exercise for those who want to have the most expensive Audi ever.
