A 610HP Audi Laptop On Wheels?

The current generation Audi R8 looks tailored for a gentleman, even though it's gets the mental 610hp 5.2- litre V10 motor from the Lamborghini Huracan. Nevertheless, Audi wants the R8 to stand out in the looks department, which is why they took the most powerful R8, the V10 Plus and simply chopped the roof off.

The resultant R8 V10 Plus Spyder surprisingly exceeds the coupe's performance at 0-100km/h in 3.3 seconds and a higher top speed of 328km/h, given that there's lesser structural rigidity on the convertible.

However, apart from the new micrommata green colour, the Spyder Plus also has a 12.3 inch MMI touch display, Wi-Fi hotspot, microphones, LTE internet, wireless phone charger, laser light LED headlights, Bang & Olufsen audio with headrest speakers and magnetic ride adaptive damper control.

Since Audi cares about the polar bear too, the R8 Plus' V10 motor gets cylinder deactivation, and clever engine start/stop tech.
