The next episode from last years most beautiful story of Germany has arrived. After some bad news on the V12 TDi concept, Audi now confirmed that the R8 Spider is coming next year! This is rather bad news for Porsche because Audi has now a competitor in both coupé and cabrio class. If we believe our source the roof of the R8 Spider will be a removable targa one with detachable panels rather tan a canvas roof or a folding hard-top.
Under the hood we have one option for sure and two rumoured engines:
• R8: 414bhp naturally aspirated V8
• RS8: 500bhp naturally aspirated V10
• R8 TDI: 500bhp twin-turbo V12 turbodiesel
Prices are will start around £85.000 (€107.000 – $170.000) for the R8 spider!
