No less than thirty Audi R8 Spyders gathered around in Neckarsulm to celebrate the company’s participation at Le Mans. Even though the company with the four-ring logo didn’t actually win the legendary endurance race this year, they still managed a commendable third place and this was an achievement enough worthy to be celebrated by gathering so many open-top R8s in one place.
The cars gathered together at Audi Forum Neckarsulm and as you can see all of them were painted in red, white and silver, with all of the cars having just about the same level of equipment and specifications.
Audi recently started selling the second generation R8 Coupe so it’s going to be a while until the Spyder version will join the range, possibly towards the end of next year or early 2017. Just like with the coupe, there won’t be a V8 version as the supercar is being sold exclusively with a V10 engine while a future lesser version is believed to adopt a downsized turbocharged motor, possibly a V6.
Getting back to this year’s Le Mans, Audi took third place with Lotterer/Fassler/Treluyer GER Audi Sport Team Joest R18 e-tron and right behind them was Duval/di Grassi/Jarvis GER Audi Sport Team Joest R18 e-tron while in seventh came Albuquerque/Bonanomi/Rast GER Audi Sport Team Joest R18 e-tron.
