The interior of the new Audi R8 Spyder* echoes the streamlined styling of the exterior and also visualizes the systematic lightweight construction concept. The defining element is the “monoposto”, the large arc running around the cockpit. The instrument panel appears to float weightlessly, and cylindrical controls for the automatic air conditioner are arranged along its lower edge.
The driver and passenger sit in the new, low-mounted R8 sport seats with integrated head restraints, which are standard. They are power-adjustable and heatable at the push of a button. The lumbar support is pneumatically adjustable, as are the seat and backrest side bolsters. Audi also offers optional R8 bucket seats. These are even more strongly contoured, can
be folded down and feature some power adjustments.
Elegant and bold: the materials and colors
Upholstery choices include an Alcantara/leather combination and fine Nappa leather, plus two leather packages and a diamond pattern. The shades rotor gray, black and express red are offered in combination with the black instrument panel.
In combination with the granite gray cockpit, the elegant colors Vermont brown and parchment beige are also available. With the black interior, there is a wide choice of colors available for the contrasting stitching.
The trim areas – the “monoposto,” the center tunnel console and the door inlays – come standard in the anodized paint finish anthracite. Audi also offers these in titanium finish anthracite matt, piano finish black or gloss carbon as options. The air vents come standard in titanium finish anthracite gloss and the housing of the Audi virtual cockpit in black matt. Both are optionally available in gloss carbon. Furthermore, the pedals and footrest are available in stainless steel.
The Audi exclusive program allows dedicated individualists to fulfill virtually any special wishes. For instance, illumination and personalization in the form of logos and emblems are available for the door sill trims. Customers can choose from many different upholsteries, trim panels and colors; the selection is virtually unlimited.
