Audi R8 Spider revealed

Yesterday we reported the A1 sketches scooped by the British magazine CAR. A day later the people at CAR have done it again. They have now released a sketch of the next R8 Spider. Its makes us wonder if they really did smuggle out the sketches as they claim.

Due to be launched in autumn 2009 with a worldwide debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Spider features twin speedster humps, which incorporate vents to bring fresh air to the engine. The general design is almost the same as the coupé, apart from Audi's addition of an aluminium-look panel just behind the doors.

Like the coupé, the convertible version will use the V8 4.2 litre V8 which produces 414bhp/420hp. It will also probably feature the V10 engine, which produces more than 500bhp.

Considering that Audi wants to launch 18 new cars over the next few years, I can't help but wonder if the supercar Audi A8 will be available one day in a Sportback version.

Gotta say, this car is gorgeous. Even Jeremy Clarkson gives it the thumbs up! Praise indeed.
Needs a good Audi R8 number plate tho!
