It seems unfair to label any R8 Spyder as a base model, so we’ll call this the layman’s R8 Spyder, with the 5.2-liter V10 engine detuned to produce 562 hp and 406 lb-ft. Quattro all-wheel-drive is standard, as is a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, which sees the R8 Spyder launch from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds. A folding soft-top roof is operable at up to 31 mph, letting the sun into a cabin adorned in leather with power-adjustable seating, while behind the D-shaped steering wheel, you’ll find Audi’s now-signature virtual cockpit instrumentation cluster, handling everything from instrumentation to onboard navigation and even media, with full AM/FM/SiriusXM functionality, and smartphone connectivity via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
