Audi R8 V10 Spyder
Base MSRP: $177,100
Audi introduced an updated version of the R8 for the 2017 model year. The flagship sportscar of the German automaker’s lineup, the R8 Spyder is slightly shorter in overall length but wider than its predecessor by about an inch. With a low, wide stance accentuated by a large honeycomb grille, the R8 dominates the night with available laser lighting for maximum visibility and range — identified by a blue anodized strip in the headlights. Powering the R8 Spyder is a normally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine producing 540 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque. With Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system, the R8 Spyder can sprint to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 198 mph. The R8 Spyder features a cloth top that can be opened in 20 seconds at speeds up to 31 mph.
