Audi R8 Spider

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:

Current engine:
• R8: 414bhp naturally aspirated V8

Possible engines:
• 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!

  1. Mir gefällt dieser neue Audi R8 Spider sehr gut. Das sportliche Design und jetzt auch noch als Cabrio passt richtig gut zusammen. Ich hoffe, dass ich mir irgendwann einmal so einen Audi R8 Spider leisten kann. Aber bis dahin wird es wohl schon eine neuere Version geben.
