The 2020 R8 Spyder takes its supercar status to the next level. Choose between the 562-hp V10 engine or the powerhouse 602-hp engine on the V10 performance, both of which add balance through the mid-engine drivetrain design.

Striking style, singular grip

Similar to its singular performance, the Audi R8 Spyder features a unique application of quattro® technology, which emulates a rear-wheel drive vehicle, but with the ability to send up to 100% of available torque to the front axle, depending on the driving situation.

Born on the track — built for the road

The 2020 Audi R8 Spyder comes standard with Audi magnetic ride, which uses a synthetic blend of oils that contain tiny magnetic particles to create a magnetic field within the shock absorber. Several modes are offered to match your preference — choose between Dynamic, Comfort and Auto settings via Audi drive select.

A bold new vision

Available on the R8 V10 and standard on V10 performance models, full LED headlights with Audi laser light technology help you see things clearer. When conditions permit, the Audi laser light modules activate, helping increase sight range. In addition, visual distinction is provided by a blue structure within the headlights and dynamic turn signals.

Gone in 20 seconds

The Audi R8 Spyder features an acoustic folding roof that’s innovative and nearly imperceptible. The soft-top contains an electrohydraulic drive system to raise or lower the roof in only 20 seconds, at speeds of up to 31 mph. It was developed with lightweight construction principles and is only 97 lbs — which helps keep the center of gravity low.
