That there’d be a new R8 Spyder was a foregone conclusion long before any spy photos of the drop-top four-ringer had been seen. And, that it was near time for an official reveal of the car seemed also obvious given the longer and warmer days and the months since that first test mule was spied. Even still, we were a bit surprised to see one running around Germany undisguised. Nevertheless, that’s just what our spy photographers encountered earlier today. More…

There was never really a question of whether Audi will build an R8 Spyder or bring it to the USA. The last car was a runaway success, and a drop-top version of the new car is a foregone conclusion.

When Audi launched the all-new second-generation R8 last year, it did so with a V10 only model. Suggestions of anything smaller than that were flatly discounted to us by then new and now retiring quattro Gmbh boss Heinz Hollerweger, though rumors of an smaller engine persisted in parts of the press who’d know if it were under consideration. In as much, we’d always banked on there being an engine choice slotted below the V10 for the Audi R8, though whether it was an upcoming biturbo 3.0-liter V6 or the TT RS’ burbling 2.5 TFSI remained a point of contention.

Poll nearly any Audi fan about their top two current-generation cars and most likely the Audi R8 and RS 6 Avant will make the list, perhaps only swapping order depending on one’s stage in life.
