Audi R8 Convertible confirmed for 2011 debut

Audi sources have confirmed that the Stuttgart automaker will introduce a convertible version of the R8 supercar in 2011.

Sources told WhatCar?┬áthat the Audi R8 Spyder will have a full-length soft-top convertible roof. However, Audi has yet to confirm whether the R8 convertible will use the V8 or the 528-hp V10 engine from the R8’s current lineup.

Pricing is expected to come in significantly more than the hard-top sibling. Audi is expecting to target the Porsche 911 Cabriolet, V8 Vantage Roadster and the replacement for Ferrari’s F430 Spider.
