Drawing plenty of attention from attendees at the Singapore Motor Show is Audi's good looking 2017 Audi R8 Spyder supercar. And while you can keep the roof down, if you're gonna get one in Singapore (which you can't just yet), you'll probably want the roof up for the air conditioning you'll require in sunny Singapore.

Other new cars displayed at Audi's booth include the Audi A5 Coupe packed full of super cool tech and the Audi A2 SUV.

Unlike other car manufacturers, Audi is letting attendees try out the cool VR experience by taking them to the Audi pit stop at the 24 hour Le Mans endurance race. As well, it lets users check out its newest cars, then customize them virtually.

Red seems to be a very popular color of choice for car manufacturers in Singapore, and this Honda NSX supercar is no exception.

Volkswagon's Beetle Cabriolet is a convertible version of the iconic silhouette, and like many of the cars at the Motor Show, come in shiny red.

The Toyota Harrier, also known as the Lexus RX in some markets, is certainly blinged out.

The Jaguar XE may not be as flashy as the other models, but its aluminum construction makes for a relatively lightweight car.

Featuring a beautiful new design, the Toyota C-HR is youthful and powerful. It's set to make its retail debut sometime this year, so keep an eye out.

Not shying away from the hot reds of the Motor Show is the Lexus RC Turbo. If you like coupes, this is another one to consider.

Last but not least, Ford's muscle car, the Mustang makes an appearance in Singapore. It's a rare sight to see one on the roads in the city state though.
