The next version of the extremely successful Audi R8 is the R8 Spyder, the convertible version of the 911 bashing Audi. We’ve seen spy shots floating around and rumour has it that Audi will be bringing the Audi R8 Spyder to Frankfurt in September.
And now an over-eager Audi dealer in the UK has stuck an advert on Pistonheads for the new Audi R8 Spyder and included a grainy (hence the image quality above) shot of the R8 Spyder, which could have been taken on a dealer reveal recently. Oops! Not sure that’s going to go down too well with Audi. Of course, it could just be a poorly lifted shot from the set of Iron Man II, which features the new Spyder and has popped up on the Interweb recently.
The dealer is quoting prices of £105,000, and is willing to take deposits and orders. Which would tend to indicate that the R8 Spyder is only going to come as a V10 when it arrives. Either that, or Audi are sticking a HUGE premium on the standard R8 V8, which seems highly unlikely.
Still, we’ll find out at Frankfurt in September, Although the dealer in question reckons the car will actually show at Geneva in 2010. Which seems unlikely.
