2017 Audi R8 Spyder debuts at the New York Auto Show


Audi has chosen this week's New York Auto Show to be the location for the world debut of the 2017 R8 Spyder. The R8 Spyder is powered by the same naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine and seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission as the R8 V10 coupe, but its open-top driving experience will be even more fun.


The R8 Spyder's cloth roof opens and closes in a mere 20 seconds at speeds up to 31 mph.

"For Audi of America, the R8 started a revolution," said Scott Keogh, President, Audi of America. "It didn't just win at the racetrack and become the car of super heroes, it truly added Audi to the luxury conversation in the U.S."
