We are pleased to present this 2011 Audi R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI Quattro finished in Brilliant Red over black Nappa leather interior. This R8 represents one of 1,145 examples sold in North America for 2011 and even fewer that came equipped with the larger V10 engine and gated six-speed manual transmission. It highlights a clean two-owner history on CARFAX and has undergone a recent service and inspection from an Audi dealer in preparation for sale. Originally sold in Canada, this R8 Spyder is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Missouri while showing approximately 24k-miles on the odometer.
This R8 is finished in Brilliant Red with clear paint protection film applied over the forward half of the front end. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. Compared with a standard R8, the V10 model can be differentiated by larger oval exhaust tips, wider body sills, and “V10” badges mounted on the front fenders. This example rides on factory 19” 10-spoke Y-design forged aluminum wheels which have been recently dressed in new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires.
The driver-focused black Nappa leather interior features deeply bolstered sport seats, a gated six-speed manual shifter, and a flat-bottomed three-spoke steering wheel. Other features include a multimedia display with Audi Navigation Plus, a Bang & Olufsen premium sound system, the Audi advanced parking system w/ rearview camera, remote keyless entry, and aluminum pedals. Minor signs of wear are visible on the seats and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.
Under the rear hatch lies a Lamborghini-derived 5.2L V10 FSI engine which generates up to 525 HP and 391 lb.-ft of torque. Power is delivered to all four wheels through a highly desireable 6-speed manual transmission and Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system. Other performance features include an electronic differential lock (EDL), Audi magnetic ride adaptive damping system, Servotronic electromechanical speed-sensitive power steering, and an electronic stabilization program with a sport setting. The R8 V10 Spyder can reach 60 MPH from a standstill in as little as 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 195 MPH. A history of maintenance is provided on CARFAX including a preemptive 45k mile service shown to have been carried out in 2016 at just over 17k-miles. This R8 recently underwent a service and inspection from an Audi dealer along with the installation of new struts and tires in preparation for sale. The seller has offered to accomodate a pre-purchase inspection for any potential buyer.
This sale will include recent service invoices and a clean title. With its howling V10 engine and sought-after 6-speed manual transmission, this R8 5.2 Spyder offers a fantastic choice for any discerning driver or collector.
