The gorgeous product of a seemingly odd union between Audi and Lamborghini just lost its top, and seems to have benefited from the change. Our colleagues over at the Motor Authority snagged some spy shots of the V10 R8 Spyder running wild on the Nurburgring, so make the jump to see more.
As you can see, the rear window is still camouflaged and the “side blades” have been removed to facilitate the soft top, but overall much of the look of the car has remained. We’re expecting a 2011 model year introduction and the 5.2L V10 as a production option. It won’t be cheap, but then again, for what it is it seems a bargain.
