Mean, green Audi R8 Spyder is here

Audi R8 Spyder V10 Plus

THE Incredible Hulk just went on a diet and got sexy.

This is the new Audi R8 Spyder V10 Plus, released in a rather striking Hulk and Kermit the Frog shade of green.

Like the Hulk, it’ll certainly give you some pulling power in all senses of the expression.

At £147,470 it needs to.

The V10 Plus version of the R8, which has 69bhp more than the regular R8, was up until now only available for the R8 coupe. But now the most potent version of Audi’s supercar is available for the Spyder, and this is set to be the final addition made to the R8 range. Audi has no plans to add any more variants to the R8 line-up.

But, unlike the Hulk, you will like this green monster when it’s angry – delivering over 200mph.

Boasting 602bhp in total and weighing 25kg less than the regular R8 V10 Spyder, the Plus version of the Spyder trims down the 0-62mph sprint time by three tenths of a second to just 3.3 seconds in total. The top speed is also increased by 6mph to 206mph in total.

Separating the Plus further from the regular R8 Spyder is styling changes such as new carbon fibre trim in place of the standard gloss black trim details.

The exhaust system is also replaced with a new design featuring four instead of two pipes and carbon ceramic brakes plus black alloy wheels are also standard. Inside meanwhile, the Plus also has buckets seats as standard.

Standard kit for the R8 Spyder V10 Plus includes Audi’s Virtual Cockpit display, black Nappa leather, wi-fi hotspot and seatbelt microphones for optimal audio quality.

At a shade under £150k, it’ll certainly leave your neighbours green with envy.
