Legends are handmade.

When you enter the Audi quattro GmbH factory in Neckarsulum, Germany, the immediate impression is one of quiet devotion. This is where each individual Audi R8 is brought into being by 241 dedicated specialists. Precision reigns supreme as these experts hand-measure and assemble the R8, only utilizing robots when absolutely necessary.

Open season.

When hunting for a twisting back road, the driver can enjoy the open air at the touch of a button. The acoustic soft top can be lowered at speeds of up to 50 km/h in just 20 seconds. The glass rear window can be lowered independently of the roof, making it perfect to hear the roar of the engine in any weather.

Size matters.

Coming as standard with 19-inch wheels, the R8 is available with a selection of designs in both 19- and 20-inches.

In your element.

Inspired by classic race cars of the past, the cabin has a “Monoposto” or single seat cabin design. Rich leather and exotic finishes combine to bring luxury to the racetrack.

The ringside seat.

The Audi virtual cockpit combines the functions of a central MMI monitor and conventional instrument cluster in one unique TFT display. The driver can select and customize the information on the screen from the steering wheel. Virtually everything can be controlled from the R8 specific wheel including an engine start button, Audi drive select, and available satellite controls for the exhaust and performance modes.

Curves ahead.

As the head of the Audi Sport family, the technology of the racetrack comes to life in every element of the R8 Spyder, including the available bucket seats. Stay firmly in place and be surrounded by the motorsport experience during every drive.

Stay connected to the journey.

The Audi virtual cockpit is a fully digital 12.3" instrument display that allows the driver to customize information such as navigation and audio, offering Classic and Infotainment modes as well as Google Earth™. The R8 has a third option: Sport mode, which displays a large, central tachometer and performance statistics, such as a lap timer, horsepower and torque gauge, G-meter, tire pressures and temperatures.

Re-write the rules.

Standard on the 2021 Audi R8 Spyder, MMI touch with handwriting-recognition technology allows the driver to “write” their entry rather than selecting letters or numbers and more easily navigate maps by moving a finger across the touchpad.

A sound experience.

Designed specifically for the Audi R8, the Bang & Olufsen Sound System offers premium audio technology. The system features 13 active speakers and a strategically placed subwoofer in the chamber of the front wheel, resulting in 550 watts of crystalline sound.

Let innovation be your guide.

On the road, shifts happen. Constantly moving vehicles, traffic and obstacles. The Audi available driver assistance technologies can help alert you to some of the unpredictable shifts that come your way.
