2010 Audi R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI quattro
While certainly admired in the U.S., some have found the Audi R8’s unique aluminum “side blades” a bit awkward. At Frankfurt, Audi showed what the R8 looks like without them, and without a top, too. Due for European production in the first quarter of 2010, the R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI quattro features a power soft top, a vented cowl extending behind each seat, and carbon fiber bodywork for select parts. Powered by Audi’s 525-horsepower 5.2-liter V10, the R8 Spyder can rocket to 62 mph in 4.1 seconds and top out at 192 mph. No U.S. on sale date has been announced, but it’s coming and probably with the “base” 425-horsepower 4.2-liter V8 as well.
