Front and rear spoilers, 19-inch aluminium wheels and chrome tailpipes ensure that the R8 is never less than enticing. Inside, low-slung and heated sports seats make for eminently comfortable cocoon-like positions, and offer wide-ranging electric adjustability. The driver further benefits from a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel that enables him or her to find that perfect position. Other standard features include seatbelt-integrated microphones that enable travellers to communicate safely and clearly by phone, even when the R8 engine sound is in full effect. Also featured is a flat-bottomed leather steering wheel, air-conditioning and an infotainment system that includes navigation and a 12.3-inch touchscreen display.
A 5.2-litre V10 engine offers two power outputs: 540bhp or 610bhp. The latter produces 560Nm of torque, racing from 0-60mph in less than 3.5 seconds and with a top speed befitting any race track – 205mph. Not just quick, the R8 is easy to drive too, and with features such as Traction Control and Electronic Stability Control it’s also very safe.
The Spyder increases the R8's thrill factor by possessing a lightweight roof that opens in just 20 seconds when travelling at speeds of up to 31mph.
