Audi R8 GT Spyder: Confirmed for next year!

Audi R8 GT Spyder

Audi has released a teaser for the hardcore Audi R8 GT Spyder which is confirmed to debut next year. A must see!

Destined to be previewed at Le Mans in June before its proper unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the R8 GT Spyder has been teased with these preview sketches released to the British motor press.

Expect the same 560-horsepower V10 as the coupe, mated to Audi’s R-tronic six-speed automated manual transmission. But with the droptop’s interrupted aerodynamics and added weight, the R8 GT Spyder expected to top out at 193 mph – six mph shy of the coupe’s top end. The rear spoiler, front splitter, upgraded brakes and weight reduction regime (less sound isolation, thinner glass and carbon-fiber components) should carry over, as should the Alcantara interior.
