Hey look it’s an Audi R8 without a roof.

Roof down!
Roof up!

Everything about the car is the same (other than the whole its roof is made of canvas thing).

Horsepower is 540 from the naturally aspirated V10 and Audi claims that it weighs 3,554 lbs (1612kg) dry. Audi says that’s 97 lbs (44 kg) heavier than the coupe, though curiously I have found Audi’s German site claims the R8 Coupe weights 1630 kilos dry. I don’t know how that works.


Top speed is 198 mph and 0-62 is 3.6 seconds.

Enjoy the noise.
