The 2017 Audi R8 Spyder V10 is So Loud

The new Audi R8 Spyder is faster, lighter and more dynamic than its predecessor. It has grown by 36 millimeters (1.4 in) in width to 1.94 meters (6.4 ft). This added width is underscored by the horizontal lines at the front and rear. The sculpted Singleframe with its eye-catching honeycomb grille appears wider and is positioned lower. It is flanked by large air inlets with vertical bars.

Positioned seamlessly above the Singleframe are the wedge-shaped LED headlights, which are optionally available with Audi laser light. This option provides for optimal visibility in the dark and can be identified by the lighted, anodized blue strips dividing the headlights and also by the dynamic turn signals. The narrow LED lights provide a distinctive red light signature at the stately rear of the car.

Downforce is provided by a large diffuser bordered on both sides by trapezoidal exhaust tailpipes. The new sideblades emphasize the sporty lines on the flanks. The inlets there feed air to the mid-mounted V10 engine.
