Audi just released their latest V10 powered R8 Spyder at the New York International Auto Show. Earlier this month we spotted a few topless Huracans at the Amelia Island Concours, and we figured the new R8 convertible would follow close behind. Huracan and R8 are now closer than ever, with both models benefiting from a 50 percent stronger aluminum space frame.


The stalwart 5.2L V10 is tuned to 540 hp, which allows 62 mph (100 kph) to arrive in 3.6 seconds.  The powered soft top is also faster, stowing away in under 20 seconds, operating at up to 31 mph. More carbon fiber allows for a dry weight under 3,600 lbs, a featherweight in the AWD convertible marketplace.
