Second generation Audi R8 V10 Plus rendered as a Spyder model

Independent artist Theophilus Chin has decided to render a possible look for the second generation Audi R8 V10 Plus Spyder. Likely coming out sometime in 2016, the open-top supercar will have a lot in common with the coupe version in terms of design but obviously it will lose the fixed metal roof and opt instead for a retractable soft top which will add some weight to the car that in coupe specification tips the scales at 3,205 lbs (1,454 kg) in Plus guise.

Motivation will be provided by the same FSI V10 5.2-liter normally aspirated engine delivering 610 PS (449 kW) and a peak torque of 413 lb-ft (560 Nm). Taking into account it will be slightly heavier, the Audi R8 V10 Plus Spyder will be slower in the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint which is completed by the coupe in 3.2 seconds while the top speed is expected to decrease a little bit from 205 mph (330 km/h).

As far as pricing is concerned, expect the Audi R8 V10 Plus Spyder to cost in excess of €200,000 taking into consideration the coupe is available from a starting price of €187,400 in Plus guise.
