Introduction

What Car? says...

If you’re after a rapid and fire-breathing mid-engined supercar that’s also usable, reliable and easy to drive, an Audi R8 would fit the bill nicely. Suppose, though, that you wanted all those qualities but you also desired a bit of wind-in-the-hair action – what do you look for then? The answer, of course, is the even-more-glamorous Audi R8 Spyder.

Simply put, it’s the convertible version of the R8 coupé, and uses the same naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 petrol engine as the closed-top car, a unit it also shares with the Lamborghini Huracan.
