V10 Motor For Upcoming Audi R8 Spyder Roadster

Lamborghini is donating it’s heart to the Audi R8 Roadster to be debuted at the Frankfurt Auto Show this year.  The 2011 R8 will feature a whopping V10 monster, pushing 500+ horsepower, allowing the Audi to do 0-60 in under 4 seconds.

According to sources close to Audi engineers the base model Audi R8 will retain it’s 4.2 liter V8 motor.  However, the Spyder convertible, will have the V10 option to maintain an elite status.  Although with a top speed of 195 mph it will be hard to tell who’s driving anyways. 😉

The V10 Audi R8 Spyder won’t be available till model year 2011, so look for it on Audi/Saab show room floors sometime late next year.
