Audi R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI qu S tronic Review
The Sublime Drive of a Topless Ride

28 Dec 2017

the R8 comes from a special place, and we say this in a physical and soulful sense

An open top with an engine behind you is just one of the best ways to experience a supercar. It is very fitting, that we have our hands on the R8 again, in delivering our last car review of 2017! We began the year with the R8 Coupe, and we loved how the second generation R8 did the job of waking up the senses, and how superb its handling, and refinement was.

The Audi R8 loses the roof, to bring the engine and exhaust note of that brilliant 5.2 litre V10 into the cabin with the Spyder model. Like the coupe, we cannot stress how drivable the R8 is as a daily driver.

There are companies which specialise in supercars, and yes they are great. But for Audi, which is more in-tune with producing just about everything else luxury, up and down the car spectrum; the R8 comes from a special place, and we say this in a physical and soulful sense.

Hand-built in a specialised facility, which was also responsible for building another kind of R8 (for Le Mans purposes), by a small team of about 500, the first car rolled off the production like amidst plenty of hype. The second generation R8 carries on with this mid-engined goodness, and we again have one without a top.

The entire experience from registering my car on OneShift to the handing over to the dealer was very pleasant. The process at OneShift was efficient and transparent. Special thanks to RenAi from OneShift who was very detailed and helpful.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
