Will the 2017 Audi R8 Spyder bridge the gap between courtesy, courtesy and ferocious daily circuit ready that its promises manufacturer Audi Sport? Surely, it does. The thing is, is a misleading car and you might have to dig like a prospector to unearth the golden supercar fall talents.
Exterior and Interior
Like any other transformation that turns a coupe into a convertible, the R8 Spyder is identical to R8 Coupe we saw at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, except for the roof and engine hood. In total, the new Spyder seems the same scalable design with the new Audi company language has more angular features. Overall, the new 2017 Audi R8 Spyder has a more aggressive stance due to its larger vertical front and lateral grilles, rear tail lights and rear diffuser career. As for the features that make the R8 a supercar with infinite space, the metal capsule has been replaced by a lightweight hood with an aluminum and magnesium frame, as well as a completely different lid from the engine. The recipe is similar to the first car gene, as a large piece of glass showing the engine in the coupe was abandoned in favor of a ventilated hood and windscreen behind the rear seats. The lightweight fabric is operated by an electro hydraulic control that opens and closes the bell in 20 seconds. The action can be done in both directions at speeds up to 31 mph. The rear window can be retracted and extended depending on the desired amount of air in the cabin.
Like the exterior, the 2017 Audi R8 Spyder mimics the interior of the coupe in almost every detail. It features a flat-bottomed steering wheel with three spokes and redesigned many controls, sports seats with revised enhanced side support and a 12.3-inch screen that replaces the two old meters instruments as the MMI screen previously installed on the center console. There is also a redesigned dashboard with new A / C outlets and a new center console. Adjustment options include Alcantara and Nappa leather combined with optional Nappa full leather seats and clear coated carbon fiber for center console, instrument panel and door panels. Of course, the Spyder infinite benefits of the free space that comes with all the convertibles.

Keep the needle between 6500 and 8700rpm redline high and the demand is 3.6 seconds for the 0-100km / h sprint. Its 0.2sec and 0.4s respectively shy 2017 Audi R8 Spyder R8 V10 Plus cut and cut, but really feel the difference by the seat of your pants is questionable.
