Audi R8 Spyder spotted testing sans camouflage

Audi R8 Spyder spotted testing sans camouflage

The Audi R8 Spyder has been spotted testing sans camouflage in Namibia ahead of its official debut later this year. The undisguised nature of the car means that it is almost production ready while the location indicates that this is hot weather testing for the car.

As has been the case with the previous R8, there is not expected to be much to separate the Spyder from its hard top sibling. It gets the same internal and external design but now with a ventilated engine cover and possibly a more upright engine bay window.

It will be heavier than the hardtop model thanks to the changes needed to make the convertible as rigid as the latter. The car is expected to be offered only with the 5.2-litre V10 mill that produces 610bhp. This engine has been mated to a seven-speed DSG and Quattro AWD system.

The hardtop variant was launched for the Indian market for Rs 2.47 crore (ex-showroom Dehi) at the 2016 Auto Expo. The convertible will come to India a few months after its European debut and is likely to be priced Rs 20 lakh (the difference between the older models) more than the hardtop variant.
