The first photos of the new Audi R8 Spider leaked into the web ahead of Frankfurt Motor Show. At these pictures we can see a black survey roof whose mechanisms hid the mid-rear mounted engine. The front ended has the strong fencing with surrounding LED daytime running light while the rear features LED rear lights, two oval tailpipes that are visible from the sides and a huge diffuser.
Audi plans to launch the R8 Spider with only the 5.2-litre V10 engine as its symphony of thrust. It produces 386kW (525hp) and ultimate torque of 530Nm. The transmission options are the six-speed manual and the R-Tronic sequential shifter. Power joint along the two axles through the quattro AWD order which, if the same as the vehicle’s, can assigning up to 85% of torque to the rear wheels.
