Audi R8 Spyder

Audi has kept my hands full today with back to back posts. First, the rumored Project Anniversario S5 Quattro… and then this, the R8 Spyder. I have to give it to them because I normally don’t like convertible versions of coupes. But this be one sexy mama!

It’s yet to be confirmed if the Spyder will get the Lamborghini Gallardo derived V10 which has an output of 525 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque, or if Audi will stick with the V8 found in most R8’s you see on the road. Considering the Spyder will probably be heavier than the fixed-roof version, the V10 would be the welcomed choice.

The trademark sideblades found on the coupe version are already missed as there was no way of retaining them for this conversion. But there are other design cues that make up for that, like the speedster style humps residing behind the driver & the passenger seats.

Nothing would please me more right now than to wipe off the smug look on the driver’s face. That should be me driving.

    The R8 Spider pictured here is definitely a V10. Key indicators are the new wheels; the larger side intakes; and the single pipes – strictly V10 features!

    But i agree, not a big fan of convertibles, and not sure how it would be to have a rag top on a convertible with so much power and a relatively longer wheel base :s if i was on the ring, would definitely drive with the top down, engine sounds wicked!
