The Audi R8 has turned into a major craze earlier this week after Audi revealed that the vehicle will be getting a cabriolet makeover for summer this year. Dubbed as the R8 Spyder, the vehicle will come out without a fixed roof so that drivers can enjoy the breeze with the car.

Audi also shared that the next R8 Spyder will be very unique as it will be based on the R8 V10 Plus and it will also be offered with a one-of-a-kind color option As how you can see in the picture above, the color is green, something which we find pretty weird on the R8.

Under the hood, the R8 Spyder will rely in the 601hp 5.2L V10 engine that can churn out 413ft-lbs of torque, just like how it is with the R8 V10 Plus. What’s best about it is that the R8 Spyder is lighter in weight hence it may just be able to run faster than the ordinary R8.

The R8 Spyder is expected to go on sale in July next month and it looks like the car is going to be a hit in the segment it competes in. Do you like what you are seeing?
