As we mentioned yesterday, the R8 Spyder will launch exclusively with the 525 horsepower 5.2-liter V10 and will likely feature the smaller, but no less exciting 4.2-liter V8 from the coupe later on in the production run. Head over to Auto Express to see the full shots.

JRapp: now as good as new again

I must say I have mixed feelings about this car. It's pretty in it's convertible form, but with the roof up it looks like any other ragtop on the street - out of place, waiting for nice weather. It would only be at home in any warm climate setting.

And then there's the missing blade. While I understand the design challenges involved in incorporating something like that into a convertible body style, the current side scoop is too Lamborghini'ish. It took me a while to get used to the blade on the original R8, but now that I have, an R8 wouldn't be an R8 without one. It's iconic to the car, like the front grille shape to an Aston Martin or round side window to a Thunderbird. Take that away and you've effectively removed it's identity.
