Audi R8 5.2 Spyder and Audi RS5 - Fast Forward

A little more Audi news.

Oct 22, 2010

The R8 Spyder with the 5.2-liter V10 engine is coming west as a 2011 model. The manual version will cost $161,000 and the model with the R tronic transmission will be an extra $9,000. That's not including destination, taxes, title, or dealer charges. At least it will have 525 hp and thermal-resistant leather to enjoy in the four seconds this hand-made car takes to hit 60 mph from standstill and then max out at 195 mph.

And keep the fanfares blaring for the RS 5. Yes, a version of the comely S5 coupe with an even harder core has 450 hp blasting from its 4.2-liter V8. That's more than one version of the R8. It will have all-wheel drive and a seven-speed, dual-clutch gearbox. The best bit: It's going on sale in the U.S. in 2012. But for how much, we'll have to wait and see.

This ITR may be able to drive on the street whenever it wants but truth be told it was designed to be piloted on the track.

A big, hyper-powered rolling tank of a German sedan; the thought of which is enough to make a certain kind of driver giddy.
