The Audi R8 has undergone a midlife refresh and is in fine fettle. Has its sprucing made it better?
The first open-top Audi supercar, which has a top speed of 195 mph, will begin rolling into U.S. showrooms as soon as next month.
Audi will add a new model to its lineup of luxe sports cars. The R8 Spyder 4.2 FSI Quattro will feature a V8 engine that offers 130 hp less than its big brother, the 560 hp R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI.
It's the lightest and fastest production sports car in Audi's lineup, and the only thing not to love about the 2012 Audi R8 GT would be its $196,800 price tag.
The new Audi R8 may have simplified its distinctive visual style, but the performance from the V10 plus model looks to be sharper than ever.
