The Audi R8 V10 Spyder has been voted ‘Drop Top of the Year’ at the annual Scottish Car of the Year Awards. The Audi R8 V10 Spyder arrived in the UK in April and prices start from £116,660.00.
Under the bonnet of the Audi R8 Spyder Drop Top is the same V10 engine as the Coupe which is capable of 0-60mph in 4.1 seconds and has a top speed of 194mph. The roof retains much of the same roof lines as the Coupe and transformation from open to closed takes just nineteen seconds. Audi claims, with the roof up, the Audi R8 Spyder's interior is nearly as quiet as the coupé's at 130 km/h.
John Murdoch, President of the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers praised the open-air Audi R8 Spyder, saying “this year’s SCOTY winner features incredible performance, stunning looks, four-wheel-drive and a wonderful soundtrack, and is sure to become a collector’s item. The Audi R8 Spyder is right at the top when it comes to desirability.”
