The V10 in the R8 Spider is a revised version of the engine found in the Lamborghini Gallardo
The Audi R8 Spider which is due to be unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show is the convertible version of Audi's flagship model.

Aside from the lack of a fixed roof there are several other relatively significant modifications to the R8 Spider's bodywork. The unique 'sideblades' of the R8 coupe, which were usually in a contrasting color, have been omitted in favor of more conventional lateral air intakes. Unfortunately these sideblades were one of the defining features of the R8 coupe's styling and it's a shame they couldn't somehow be incorporated into the convertible version. But nevertheless the R8 Spider is still a very good looking car.

The engine cover has also been significantly revised. This is due to the fact that the space behind the seats not only has to accommodate the engine, but also the convertible top. The raised speedster style humps which flow down behind each of the seats incorporate cooling air vents to help extract hot air from the engine bay.

The windscreen surround has undergone a redesign and instead of being body colored it has an aluminium finish.

Powering the Audi R8 Spider is the V10 from the R8 V10 coupe. This engine develops 525 horsepower and 530 Nm of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels through Audi's quattro AWD system.
