2011 Audi R8 Spyder: Up Close

Audi's R8 Spyder roadster debuted earlier this year, and from the photos we knew it was going to be a pretty car. However, seeing it in person for the first time at the L.A. Auto Show revealed what a head-turner it is; it's Ferrari- and Lamborghini-level gorgeous.

The curvaceous lines of the R8 coupe haven't been compromised in its transformation to a convertible. Although the vents stretching rearward from the driver and passenger seats are neat design cues, it's a shame you can't see the mid-engine like you can in the hardtop R8.

The R8 Spyder hits U.S. dealerships in summer 2010. For the fortunate few who'll be able to buy one, it'll be an instant celebrity-maker. More drool-worthy photos below.

Sadly the United States is no longer the car buying super power we once were. Because of that many of the coolest cars out there are not even being shipped to the United States. Take the Audi R8 Spyder for example, very cool, yet we cant get one here in the states.

I'm glad we won't be getting this piece of junk. It looks like a stretched TT and nothing like a ferrari. Actually it looks kind of like an old Toyota MR2, but the toyota looks better.

at a drivers point of view, this looks like a fun car to drive like the R8 we have now. i would not call it junk (well, it seems that v8/v10 supercars are junk compared to rice rockets like the mr2, right "RED"?) having driven both v8 and v10 versions both around town and at the track as it is one of the easiest to drive and balanced cars out there with a lot of tuning possibilities.

i dont know which "states" the other guy is referring to but here in the united states of america, the R8 spyder will be available in 2010.

the r8 spyder is defintely on my to drive list :)
