    Audi teases hard-core R8 GT Spyder

    It's onwards and upwards at a rapid pace over at Audi, which after releasing pricing and availability for the hard-core R8 GT coupe has now reportedly confirmed plans for an open-top version.

    Destined to be previewed at Le Mans in June before its proper unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the R8 GT Spyder has been teased with these preview sketches released to the British motor press.

    Expect the same 560-horsepower V10 as the coupe, mated to Audi's R-tronic six-speed automated manual transmission. But with the droptop's interrupted aerodynamics and added weight, the R8 GT Spyder expected to top out at 193 mph - six mph shy of the coupe's top end. The rear spoiler, front splitter, upgraded brakes and weight reduction regime (less sound isolation, thinner glass and carbon-fiber components) should carry over, as should the Alcantara interior.

    Production is expected to be capped around the same as the coupe's 333 units worldwide, likely with a slightly higher price tag. We'll have to wait another couple of months for a closer look, but you can scope out the teaser sketches below in the meantime.
