New Audi R8 Spyder V10: entrance during a New York International Auto Show

Posted on 23. Mar, 2016 by in Audi Canada

“With a extemporaneous stifle response, discerning revving-up and matchless sound, the 5.2 FSI naturally aspirated engine in a new Audi R8 Spyder delivers unmixed emotion,” remarked Dr.-Ing. Stefan Knirsch, Member of a Board of Management for Technical Development. “Compared to a R8 Coupé*, a engine sound in a open high-performance sports automobile now delivers an even some-more heated experience.”

Typically Audi: a lightweight cloth hood
The R8 Spyder has a lightweight cloth hood tapering into twin fins. These widen a cloth so that it, along with a vast hood cell cover, harmonizes ideally with a jaunty pattern of this high-performance sports car. An electro-hydraulic expostulate opens and closes a hood in 20 seconds adult to a speed of 50 km/h (31.1 mph). The back window, sunk into a bulkhead, can be retracted and extended. With all windows up, a atmosphere tide strokes a physique with a smallest of turbulence.

Aluminum and CO fiber components: a new Audi Space Frame
Dry, a two-seater weighs only 1,612 kilograms (3,553.9 lb). Its clever backbone is a newly grown Audi Space Frame (ASF) regulating a multi-material construction principle, done from aluminum and CO fiber.

The aluminum components make adult 79.6 percent of a weight. In a course from a R8 Coupé, they form a hideaway that Audi’s engineers have used to incorporate specific reinforcements generally into a sills, A-posts and windscreen frame. Innovative production methods reduce a weight of particular components by adult to 10 percent. As a result, a rarely firm physique weighs a mere 208 kilograms (458.6 lb), and a torsional acerbity has increasing by over 50 percent compared with a prior model.

Strong motorsport DNA: a V10 energy unit
The strong mid-engine with twin injection complement sets a tinge in a new Audi R8 Spyder V10. The naturally aspirated 5.2-liter engine has a energetic stifle response. Its bark – that can be optionally amplified by a competition empty complement with shimmer black tailpipe trims – is goosebump-inducing. 397 kW (540 hp) of energy and 540 Nm (398.3 lb-ft) of torque during 6,500 rpm broach unusual highway performance: from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.6 seconds, and a tip speed of 318 km/h (197.6 mph). Efficiency technologies such as a new freewheeling mode, where a R8 coasts with a engine decoupled, also foster fuel potency by 10 percent compared with a prototype model. The new R8 Spyder consumes 11.7 liters per 100 kilometers (20.1 US mpg), analogous to 277 grams CO2 per kilometer (445.8 g/mile).

Stability and dynamics: quattro drive
Behind a V10 there is a seven-speed S tronic with lighting-fast action, that a motorist controls electrically – by wire. The dual-clutch delivery leads forces to a newly designed quattro expostulate complement with an electro-hydraulically activated multi-plate purchase during a front axle. The all-wheel clutch, watercooled for limit performance, distributes a expostulate torques entirely variably according to a pushing conditions – in impassioned cases, adult to 100 percent to a front or back wheels. The intelligent control complement is incorporated into a Audi drive select system, that offers 4 modes trimming from sincerely energetic to comfort-oriented. In and with a discretionary R8 opening leather steering wheel, 3 some-more pushing programs are available: dry, soppy and snow. They make doing even some-more accurate and stable, to compare a specific conditions of a highway being traveled.

Focus on a driver: a controls
The controls place a concentration precisely on a driver, who can work all critical functions with a multifunction and satellite push-buttons but carrying to take their hands off a steering circle or demeanour divided from a road. The vast 12.3-inch, entirely digital Audi virtual cockpit presents all information regulating abounding 3D graphics – if desired, in a special opening perspective that includes pushing dynamics information. The intuitively operated MMI navigation and with MMI hold is standard, as are belt microphones. These make it even easier to use natural-language voice control and a phone. MMI search, that creates hunt suggestions after submit of only a initial few letters, offers a by-pass to a compulsory information.

High bandwidth: infotainment and Audi connect
With a Audi smartphone interface, a new record creates a opening in the R8 Spyder. This creates it probable to arrangement comparison calm from a smartphone directly in a Audi practical cockpit. From a center of this year, this choice will also be accessible for a R8 Coupé. Audi phone box can also be supplied. It connects mobile phones to a automobile aerial and charges them inductively. Audi bond gets the R8 Spyder on a Internet around LTE and provides a far-reaching operation of services – from online media streaming to real-time trade information. The Bang Olufsen Sound System is another highlight: For a initial time, Audi integrates twin conduct patience loudspeakers into any seat, for an glorious audio knowledge even when pushing with a hood open.

No compromises: build peculiarity and equipment
The build peculiarity of a new R8 Spyder, that is extensively hand-built during a manufactory nearby Neckarsulm, is of a top standard. The motorist and newcomer lay on competition seats or bucket seats with a some-more rarely contoured chair shape, for higher parallel support. Over and above a endless customary equipment, business have roughly total operation to tailor both a interior and extraneous to their particular preferences. Add-on physique components such as a front spoiler, a diffuser and a new sideblades are also accessible in carbon. LED headlights with newly grown laser record maximize prominence and operation for a driver, bringing increasing reserve during night.
