2018 Audi R8 Spyder V10 Plus Revealed in Germany

Ingolstadt's all-new 2018 Spyder V10 Plus is the fastest convertible model from the brand. Like the R8 Plus coupe, the R8 Spyder Plus sports a wailing 5.2-liter V-10 engine that packs 610 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque — an increase of 70 hp and 15 lb-ft over the .

The Quattro all-wheel-drive beast's powerplant is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. It'll get you from 0-62 mph in a blistering 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of 203.8 mph, according to .

"The Audi R8 Spyder V10 plus completes the R8 model line," said Stephan Winkelmann, Audi managing director, in a statement.

The Spyder weighs in at a healthy 3,737 pounds — the same as the regular Spyder and 55.1 pounds less than the coupe, Audi claims. The cloth top is lowered and raised via an electrohydraulic motor that takes 20 seconds to open or close at speeds up to 31.1 mph.

It folds into a Z-shape and is stored in a flat compartment over the engine. Audi says the rear window sinks into the bulkhead, but can be retracted and extended electrically.

In addition to the 11 standard paint flavors, the top is available in three shades, and the side blades can be specified in five colors.

The R8 Spyder Plus' exclusive new micrommata green paint job gives it a Hulk-like appearance and the optional design package has an anthracite gray single-frame grille and black tailpipe covers. The interior is in all black Nappa leather with green stitching accents on the seats, center armrests, doors, and floor mats.

says the leather on the bucket seats have a special pigmenting that stops them from heating up in the sun's rays, which sounds like a big V10 plus for us.

The Spyder V10 also gets a large 12.3-inch Audi virtual cockpit and a rockin' Bang & Olufsen sound system with loudspeakers in the seats — that Audi says can actually be heard over the engine noise with the top down.

In addition, optional are available and will make you look really freakin' cool at night.

Orders are now being accepted and the first cars will be delivered in the late summer. The base price in Germany is about $234,174.

Audi will announce pricing details for the U.S. when the launch date is finalized here. Stay tuned.
