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.

It appears Volvo hasn't abandoned its love for the aging S60 lineup, and they're introducing some face-lifts to prove it.

At a glance, both of these Integras would appear to be similar but in actuality they are almost polar opposites.

Hard to believe that the BMW 3 Series is 40 years old. It's also hard to imagine a time when the phrase "3 Series" meant nothing.
