2011 Audi R8 Spyder 5.2 V10 FSI Quattro Official Photos Leaked

2011 Audi R8 Spyder 5.2 V-10 FSI Quattro

The much-anticipated and much-expected Audi R8 Spyder has fallen out of its invisible embargo force field on the way to next week’s Frankfurt auto show. We can’t share any official info yet, but these images, which come to us via a worldwide web of interlinked computers, do give a few clues: the V10 badge confirms the 5.2-liter engine will be the sole engine option. The wheels are also from the V-10 coupe, and the engine cover has breathing holes much like those on the related Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder. Also, this one’s brown, and we’re okay with that.

As seen on previous spy shots, the coupe’s side blades disappear and are replaced by unique bodywork that still incorporates air intakes aimed at the engine. And, although it’s not shown here, the R8 Spyder will sport a cloth roof.

Check back for full details next week once the droptop R8 is officially uncloaked in Frankfurt.2011 Audi R8 Spyder 5.2 V-10 FSI Quattro
