Some better pics here. Brown is the new black.... maybe. Looks brilliant though, especially from the back.

2011 Audi R8 Spyder 4.2 FSI Quattro - Official Info
BY STEVE SILER

From the Something-We-Figured-Was-Coming-But-Are-Thrilled-To-See-Anyway Department comes Audiís announcement of the R8 Spyder 4.2 FSI Quattro. Itís basically the V-8 version of the V-10Ėengined R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI Quattro, which itself is scheduled to appear in U.S. showrooms starting this September.

Audi of America says the V-8 Spyder will arrive in the U.S. in early 2011 with a 430-hp version of Audiís 4.2-liter V-8, which coupes also will receive for 2011. A gated six-speed manual will be standard, while Audiís R tronic automated manual will be optional. Although the 2011 model year starts this fall, 2011 R8 coupes wonít arrive until the Spyder shows up next spring. If Audi keeps the weight gain to somewhere near the 220-pound difference between the V-10 coupe and Spyder models, the 4.2 Spyder should be able to knock out a 0-to-60-mph sprint in about 4.2 seconds. (We have been able to get the R8 4.2 coupe to 60 in four flat.)

If your in Melbourne Thursday September 30th have the camera's at the ready, some customers have been invited to drive the new R8 Spyder and RS5 down to the Island and then do a track day with Brad Jones and his guys....

That's correct - this customer day is followed by the Press Launch, then customers finally get their cars (my car arrives on the 28th of this month but is being held in bond until after the official launch)
