Audi released new details on the R8 GT Spyder

The R8 GT Spyder was analyzed and now we have more information from Audi as it has released details on this special model. Apparently it will be a limited edition, the carmaker only building 333 units.
This model is 85 kg lighter than the standard open-top R8 and the price was set for EUR 207.800. The model features a 5.2-liter FSI V10 engine that was recalibrated and can now deliver 560 horsepower and 540 Nm of torque. The power is being sent to the wheels through a 6-speed R tronic automatic gearbox. The R8 GT Spyder is an all-wheel-drive car, but anyway, its Quattro drive system has a strong rear-wheel-drive bias.
The weight of the car was decreased thanks to the fact that several body parts were made from carbon-fiber and also thanks to the very light weight seats.
The model can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds and can speed up to 197 mph.
