Audi R8 Spyder to be offered with 4.2 V8 in 2011

The 525-hp Audi R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI quattro is ready to hit showrooms this fall, with a price tag that will probably make your wallet lighter than it is now. Of course, you’ll enjoy such benefits of going from 0-62 mph in 4.1 seconds with the wind blowing through your hair.

But if you’re not into the brute force of the V10 you might want to wait until early 2011 when the V8 hits dealerships – not to mention it’ll cost around $30,000 less than its V10 sibling.

Nothing is official yet, but Straightline says that the Audi R8 Spyder 4.2 FSI V8 will be offered with either an automated manual R-tronic with paddle shifters or the standard 6-speed manual.
