We know that many of you weren't exactly thrilled about the cocoa bean color of the R8 Spyder in the press shots, but in Frankfurt, Audi displayed two examples of its stunning topless sports car finished in white and red respectively. We wouldn't mind either color, though to be honest, what we'd really like to see it in is a deep metallic black finish. At launch, the R8 Spyder will be available exclusively with the Lambo-sourced 5.2-liter V10 engine that cranks out 525 horsepower and can be combined with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
Audi says that acceleration from zero to 100km/h (62mph) comes after 4,1 seconds instead of the coupe's 3,9 seconds while the two-seater can reach a maximum speed of 313 km/h (195 mph). First deliveries are expected sometime in the first quarter of 2010. For the 'Full Monty' on the R8 Spyder
