The quattro drive train
quattro stands for excellent traction, enhanced driving dynamics and increased driving safety. Hardly any other drive brings the power of the engine to the road so confidently. Behind the powerful V10 sits a quick-as-lightning, electrically controlled seven-speed S tronic. It directs the power to the newly designed quattro drive. The electronically controlled and hydraulically actuated multi-plate clutch at the front and a mechanical limited slip differential on the rear axle allow a controllable and sporty driving behaviour combined with excellent traction. The drive torque can be distributed variably between the front and rear axles as necessary.
Depending on the weather and road situation, the all-wheel drive can additionally be modified with Audi drive select. In the four modes comfort, auto, dynamic and individual, the R8 Spyder V10 displays its different character traits: from everyday companion to a confident turning assistant on mountain roads. Even more versatile is the handling in the optional Performance mode. With the three driving modes dry, wet and snow, you can tailor the driving characteristics to specific driving conditions.
