Clarkson said it well....

it's like HP sauce...

on a bacon sandwich, it makes it better, but on hallibut, it's a no no.

Chop topping supercars is like putting HP sauce on hallibut.

Holy Crap - with that donk the bonnet would need to be like the deck of an Aircraft carrier...... I like an exciting drive but the understeer would have been epic!, maybe the first bank of cylinders in front of the uprights????

I think the V8 will be more than ok me thinks!

Audi Australia is adding a new variant to its R8 high-performance sports car lineup. Hot on the heels of the R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI quattro comes an additional variant – this time with a 4.2-litre V8 engine.

The R8 Spyder’s 4.2-litre FSI produces 316 kW and launches the open-top two-seater to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 300 km/h. The engine is mated to either a six-speed manual or R tronic sequential manual gearbox and quattro permanent all-wheel drive is standard.

Available only by special customer order, the first Australian vehicles will arrive in mid-2012, with a Manufacturer List Price (MLP) of $300,400 (6-speed manual) and $316,400 (R tronic). The R8 Spyder 4.2 will feature a similarly high level of equipment that can be found on the corresponding R8 4.2 Coupe.
