Audi R8 GT Spyder is presented

The 2012 R8 GT Spyder is the new car model from Audi that is going to hit the showrooms. Its international premiere is scheduled to take place at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show after having undergone some tests in and around the Nurburgring racetrack in Germany. The pictures in the gallery below represent the first real life ones of the R8 GT Spyder despite the fact that the German carmaker has recently teased its fans with a series of renderings. As compared to its top counterpart, the R8 GT Coupe, this hot model from Audi is planned to go on the same strict diet, while it also gains a more powerful version of the Lamborghini-derived 5.2-liter V10, delivering an impressive 560 HP. We expect to see the similar weight reduction as in the coupe, where the engineers dropped 100 kilograms, thus obtaining a car curb weight of 525 kilograms.With this weight reduction, the engineers successfully improved the power-to-weight ratio to 2.72 kilograms. Just for the record, the 0-100 km/h sprint of the coupe flavored R8 GT is reached in 3.6 seconds, while the maximum speed is rated at 320 km/h, which translates in 199 mph. The R8 GT Spyder is not seen in the prototype model here, but rumors announce that the actual R8 GT Spyder will get the same aero package as its coupe sibling, integrating front and rear bumpers featuring additional air vents. Limited to 333 units worldwide, the production of the R8 GT Spyder is expected to follow the example of the coupe.
