Audi R8 Spider – like this?

Car Magazine has developed a similar look to the above rendering for the nuova Audi R8 Spider, expected for next year.
“Engineering” reasons mean that it is likely to be equipped with a “Targa” roof of removable panels, rather than a more classic soft top or a foldable metallic roof.

These difficulties are attributed to the position of the engine which means creating a space for the roof would be too complicated.
Two “speedster” headrests are being considered for the seats.
Regarding possible engine specs, we can expect a similar range to the coupè: the current V8 4.

2 with 420 hp, a V10 petrol decidedly more powerful (while the RS6’s V10 twin-turbo has been discarded due to its “incendiary” propensions) and the future V8 4.
2 TDI at 326 hp.
Pricing should be about 12,000 euro more than the closed version.
