Just like its fixed roof sibling, the second generation R8 Spyder will be available exclusively with a V10 5.2-liter normally aspirated engine which will be offered in two states of tune: 540 PS & 540 Nm in the base V10 version and 610 PS & 560 Nm in the range-topping V10 Plus which will be available from day one. A downsized turbocharged gasoline engine will eventually join the range in the following years while details about a fully electric e-tron version are not available at this point.
Expect the new R8 Spyder to show up at a major car event sometime next year, with sales kicking off towards the end of 2016. Needless to say, the different body style will command a serious premium over the coupe which in Germany begins at €165,000.
