Audi R8 Spyder Drops Top, Embargo Ahead Of FrankfurtS

As expected, the Audi R8 5.2 V10 Spyder just couldn't make it to the Frankfurt Motor Show without dropping its embargo top — again. Here's the first slew of low-res photos with more expected to come shortly. Gallery below.

As we've told you before, the Audi R8 Spyder will receive only the 5.2-liter V10 under its newly vented rear deck. Gone are the trademark sideblades on the coupe, creating, what we feel, is a much cleaner execution. Performance figures for the Teutonic ragtop are expected to be similar to the R8 coupe with a top speed landing slightly lower on the chart. We'll have more details as soon as we get them.
