The most exclusive and powerful version of the Audi R8 Spyder has arrived in the States. All in all, the Ingolstadt-based automaker will hand-build 333 examples of the R8 GT Spyder, 50 of which are destined for the U.S., each carrying an MSRP of $210,000 (€163,300), not including a $1,200 destination and delivery fee or local taxes.What you get for the price of a family house in some states such as Ohio, is a lighter and more powerful version of the R8 V10 Spyder.
In the GT, the 5.2-liter V10 engine with direct injection and has been boosted to an output of 560 horsepower and 540 Nm (398.3 lb-ft) of torque, while Audi's engineers trimmed the weight of the open-top model by 187.39 lbs (85kg).
All these measures help the R8 GT Spyder accelerate from zero to 60 mph (96km/h) in 3.8 seconds and reach an impressive top speed of 197 mph (317km/h).
Other highlights include a 10mm lower suspension with a stiffer calibration, an aero package, 19-inch lightweight alloy wheels, and brakes with ventilated and cross-drilled rotors.
First deliveries of the R8 GT Spyder will commence this month.
