Audi R8 Spyder V10 Car HireThe Audi R8 arrives in an effectively ‘base’ Spyder spec – with a shorn of options. The V10’s ample delivery is wonderfully flat and linear. Slot fifth gear below 20mph, floor the throttle and no more than 30 seconds later you’ll be a mile up the track, having just passed 150mph. Each 20mph increment will have passed in around four seconds. Shift to fourth gear and 20mph increments take three seconds, in third gear they take two and a bit, and in second gear less than two.
Economy It gives a reasonable touring figure of 24.9mpg with an overall average of 16.6mpg in general use.
