Audi is now offering a new Audi R8 V10 Spyder 2018 model with rear wheel drive, instead of the usual all-wheel drive, further diversifying the brands line-up. The removal of the all-wheel drive running gear has produced a weight saving of up to 50 kg, further cementing the cars performance capabilities. The Audi R8 V10 Spyder 2018 will be a limited edition run, with 999 units produced globally. Each car made will feature a dashboard emblem “1 of 999,” indicating the limited number of units.
“The Audi R8 V10 Spyder 2018 is made for purists,” said Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of Audi Sport GmbH. “A limited-edition special model for customers with an appreciation for essential driving enjoyment, the Audi R8 V10 Spyder 2018 is an absolutely exclusive offer. With its mid-mounted V10 engine and rear-wheel drive, it successfully brings the driving concept of our R8 LMS racing car to the streets.”
