Audi R8 Spyder Exterior
Outgoing and uncompromising.
The Audi R8 Spyder is an extrovert to the core - an open sports car that maintains the highest standards of performance, power and dynamism, true to the Audi’s brand identity. The exterior owes its breathtaking looks to a confident and well defined body and extended side air inlets.
The clearly structured lines in the exterior are further brought out by the light-weight fabric hood, drawn out to the rear in the shape of two slim fins. It takes 19 seconds to curl up completely, at the press of a button, up to a speed of 50 km/h. The folded hood gets tucked in a storage compartment above the engine. This compartment and the rear side panels are both made of light carbon fibre, thus adding only little to the vehicle’s weight.
The wings and trailing edge make the rear end distinctly noticeable. The aluminium air outlets on the hood compartment give the car its classic racing car looks. At higher speeds, the rear spoiler extends automatically. The lined underbody leads to a diffuser drawn high up. Finally, the newly designed exhaust system with round tailpipes, that produces the unmistakable Spyder roar, completes the rear view.
The daytime running light strip surrounding the dipped beam lens in the headlights makes the front unmistakable. The 6 LED arrays in the reflector chambers along with the spotlight, evenly illuminate the road. The indicator is integrated in the upper daytime running light as a clearly defined line. Recently incorporated is a static turning light which, depending on the steering angle, gets activated automatically at certain speeds, and the indicator is switched on, to further illuminate the road.
The dynamic line so characteristic of the R8 Spyder gets accentuated by the flat windscreen frame. The frame’s anodised aluminium coating adds to the athleticism of the vehicle’s overall look. The rear window can be electrically lowered, or can serve as a wind deflector when the hood isn’t drawn.
The interior of the taillight unit has a new look. It’s surrounded by a light strip which includes the 24-LED brake light and the LED reversing light. The 30-LED indicator, at the lower edge of the rear lights, dynamically indicates intended change in direction, using LEDs in 7 switched units, making the indication unmistakable for the vehicles following yours.
The Audi R8 Spyder plays to your bold sensibilities, giving you a reason to take on every adventurous ride that life has to offer. This bold vehicle awaits your company, at Audi Delhi Central, where we have it on display in its very own outspoken avatar.
