It's indeed one busy steering wheel. And yes, the design is confusing. I would vote for the previous model. Here's one video they released.

Its not too far off, Audi should have made that roof a bit more sharper in this one.


Also, I don't get why is there a separation between the driver and the central console. If anything, it should be for the passenger side rt?

It will give a nice cockpit effect, but at the cost of ergonomics? Or are all those functions available in that steering wheel now?

^^ Great catch!

And you're right. It looks like an after-thought and it should have been on the other side of the console, like in the F-Type.

Does anyone reckon the partition is a knee rest? The edge of the centre console seems a bit low. Especially if one is spirited while turning left the knee could switch on a few buttons?!

Next generation R8 Spyder caught totally undisguised in Germany

Quote:
Just like the previous R8 Spyder, the new model employs a good old-fashioned canvas roof that neatly tucks away behind the passenger compartment and under a retractable panel above the engine, which itself, has a very similar design to the outgoing model with twin vented buttresses on either side.

Audi also transferred the engine vent from the top of the trunk lid on the coupe to in-between the tail lights on the Spyder, but the rest of the car, including the interior, remains unchanged.

The new R8 coupe lost 66kg (145 pounds) over the older car, so we expect similar savings on the Spyder.

The gloss black exterior trimmings, including the side blades and exhausts, along with the additional buttons on the steering wheel inside, confirm that this model is the ‘Plus’, which is powered by a 610PS (602hp) and 560Nm (413lb.ft) version of the 5.2-liter V10 mill.

There will also be a base R8 Spyder V10 fitted with the same engine de-tuned to 540PS (533hp) and 540 Nm (398.3 lb-ft) of torque, with both V10s to be combined exclusively to a 7-speed S-Tronic dual-clutch transmission driving all-four wheels.
