Audi R8 V10 Spyder launched in India

Audi is certainly bullish on the Indian Supercar market. After bringing in the R8 with a V8 engine and then with a V10 engine, Audi India presented its latest offering the R8 V10 Spyder – the convertible version of the R8 V10.

The R8 Spyder is powered by a 5.2L V10 engine that churns out 525 hp @ 8,000 rpm and 530 Nm of torque @ 6,500 rpm. The engine is mated to an R-tronic sequential 6-speed manual transmission that hurls the car from 0 – 100 km/hr in just 4.1 seconds on to a top speed of 313 km/hr. In order to stop all this ‘hurling’ the R8 Spyder is equipped with 8-piston aluminium brake calipers at the front and four-piston calipers at the rear.

The Audi R8 Spyder will set you back by Rs 1,47,22,000
and will be available across Audi outlets in India from April 2011.
