The Audi R8 Convertible Spider should debut at the 2009 Frankfurt auto show and will go on sale in 2010. The Audi R8 Spider will feature (as seen in the spy video) a fabric soft top and will be powered by the same 4.2 liter v8 engine that develops 420 hp and 430 Nm of torque. Listen to the twin-clutch R-Tronic gearbox quickly bang through the gears as the R8 approaches corners!!

The convertible version of Audi's R8 supercar has been spotted testing in Germany without a hint of camouflage material. These images of a prototype reveal that the convertible will gain a conventional fabric roof but misses out on the R8's trademark aluminum side blades.

Other major changes for the new 'Spider' that are expected to make it to production will be additional air intakes located behind the seats as well as a pair of safety roll-over bars. The placement of the fuel filler cap will also be changed due to the missing rear pillars, while changes under the sheetmetal will likely include extra chassis strengthening.

While the coupe has the V8 and V10 The new Spyder will only come with the V10



The R8 Spider is expected to make its debut next year, most likely at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

With prices starting at an estimated 105,000

Much better photos here - with added Tony Stark for extra zing.

This one (attached) shows the shutlines on the rear deck, so the top stowage is more like the F430 than the Gallardo.

The spoiler up is a clear indication he is breaking the law.

And a Lamborghini will never be 4-spoilers-cool like the Audi. :cool:
