H&R announced today it will offer a sport suspension for the newAudi R8 V10 Spyder. You might think that a car like the R8 needs no improvement, but H&R says the new suspension can improve the sporty characteristics of the ten cylinder vehicle – without perceptibly reducing the driving comfort.

Next to the new sports suspension, H&R is also offering an aluminum coil over kit that can adjust the height and damping force. They have also added wheel spacers made of high tensile aluminum.

The R8 V10 is powered by the same 5.2 liter V10 as the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 and develops 525hp. This allows the V10 to make the 0-60 mph sprint in under 4.1 seconds will reach 125 mph from a standstill in a little over 12.7 seconds with a top speed around 194.49 mph.

Press release

Just shortly after the official launch H&R can already offer a sports suspension set for the 525 PS Audi R8 V10 Spyder. Audi has provided its super open-topped car with a whole portfolio of technical support, from the legendary quattro four-wheel drive to the newly developed sports suspension with electronic steering. H&R Spezialfedern has developed a sports suspension set exactly for this, which can improve the sporty characteristics of the ten cylinder vehicle – without perceptibly reducing the driving comfort. In addition a 20mm lowering suits this fast open Audi very well. The imposing mid-engine sportscar thus appears more compact and powerful. For even more agile handling the suspension specialists from Lennestadt are offering an aluminum coil over kit with which the height and damping force can be individually adjusted within of the values approved by the Technical Inspection Authority (TÜV).

Further highlights can be gained from the H&R TRAK+ Wheel Spacers made of high tensile aluminum – regardless of whether they are combined with OE or aftermarket wheels. The unsightly gap between the wheel arch and the edge of the wing can thus be consigned to the past. The full range of H&R products can be had at all good specialist dealers and along with the expected H&R quality naturally always comes with a general operating permit (ABE) or TÜV certificate of conformity for parts (Teilegutachten).

It seems that Audi is serious in modifying the R series. Well, I bet the the speed of the car was affected with the weight of the hard roof top of this Spyder version.

Admittedly, the speed performance is quite less powerful for a v10 technology. I was expecting for a higher power output more than 500 hp. However, the styling of the car is beautiful for a Spyder version.

it wasn’t mentioned in the newer production of Audi R8 Spyder if they still using the engine of Lamborghini car but the figure performance remains the same. And I wonder why they borrowed an engine for this model.

Well, Spyder would the the most loveliest version that I have seen. However, for this production I think the current model for Spyder is kind of good compare to this one. I like the sportiness on this car.

To each their own, I never fell in love with the blades, convertible looks fabulous. Audi gets serious props for a real tyranny too.

I think Audi’s wheel designs across the board are some of the most attractive and cutting edge in the industry. (with the possible exception of the RS6, 5- trio spoke "flower" looking wheel that they feel the need to put on every freaking vehicle now.)

I actually want this colour in this model but with the V8. i really like the styling of this model and the V8 just seems a more balanced and refined engine when i heard one last month.

Whoever is in charge of designing wheels for Audi’s should be immediately fired.

I hate to admit it but the R8 as a convertible doesn’t do it for me. I can’t place my finger on why.

Looks fantastically fabulous, and somehow it is now much more better looking slab sides. Probably, it’s simply hot.

This is a special version of R8, it’s suspensions are enhanced by one of the best Suspension and spring company the H&R.

Lovely spyder, I bet they’ve made a lot of adjustments here. With the roof taken off it weight is lessen and it’s handling is needed to be adjusted.
