Get ready for the 2012 Audi R8 GT Spyder. This beauty comes with a 5.2 liter FSI V10 that produces 560 horsepower and a peak torque of 398 lb-ft. The 6-speed R tronic transmission is no slacker as it comes with with two fully automatic modes, the R8 GT Spyder goes from 0 to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds with a top speed of 197 mph.
With only 333 units of the Audi R8 GT Spyder set for production, prices for this car will be at a premium. Plan for at least $20,000 more than the R8 Coupe, which sold for about $196,800. However, does price really matter with features such suspension that has been tuned with aluminum or large, lightweight carbon-fiber ceramic brake discs, a new set of 19-inch alloy wheels and an Electronic Stabilization Program (ESP) that can be deactivated entirely?
Visually the R8 GT Spyder differs with accentuated styling that includes titanium grey trim, a front splitter with a dual lip, an enlarged diffuser and dark LED tail lights in a clear-glass design.
