The Top Gear car review:Audi R8 Spyder

9/10
Overall verdict
One of the most joyous cars on sale gains extra character without a roof. Lovely.
 

For: 

Superstar looks, Premier League drivetrain

Against: 

Pricey after options, and not much room for luggage

Overview

What is it?

Simple, really: the drop-top version of the Audi R8. A car we already like rather a lot gets an extra dose of glamour, but it’s worth noting that all isn’t always rosy in the world of convertible sports cars. They can be a frustrating compromise.
