Great news here for all US Audi fans: the Audi R8 Spyder 4.2 FSI quattro is coming to the US in early 2011.
Audi will add a new R8 Spyder 4.2 FSI Quattro to its U.S. model lineup in January, with output on the 4.2-liter V8 bumped to 424 horsepower. The same engine goes into the 2011 R8 coupe.
Driving all four wheels through either a six-speed manual or an R tronic six-speed sequential manual gearbox, the R8 Spyder 4.2 FSI Quattro produces 317 pound-feet of torque. With either transmission, the car has a top speed of 186 mph and rockets from rest to 60 mph in less than 4.8 seconds.
