Theophilus Chin, an automotive manipulator, has rendered the second generation Audi R8 V10 Plus by chopping off the roof from the car to make a Spyder version. Audi raised the curtains off its R8 last month at the Geneva Motor Show but revealed only the coupe version with the convertible variant expected to release next year.
As conceptualized by Theophilus Chin, the Audi R8 V10 Plus Spyder will have the same V10 FSI 5.2-liter engine producing 610 horsepower (449 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft).There can be a little drop in the performance of the car as the weight is likely to increase due to the complexity of the roof mechanism, thus the coupe version which can accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.2 seconds would beat the R8 Spyder. Obviously, the top speed will be affected too ( the R8 can go as fast as 205 mph (330 km/h).
While the Audi R8 Plus costs around €187,400, the Spyder version of it may probably cost above €200,000.
From the experience in the Automobile industry, Matt Baines has been exposed to a large number of motor topics. I have drawn on this knowledge in my personal encounter with various motors and in writing white papers for the industry and clients from numerous platforms.
