Unveiled at the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans, the R8 GT Spyder is the convertible version of the R8 GT. Limited to 333 units worldwide, the R8 GT Spyder combines the aggressiveness of the R8 GT with an open top driving experience. The engine frame is made of ultra-light magnesium; the soft top cover and the large side panels at the rear are made of carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP). CFRP is also used for the modified front spoiler, the fixed rear spoiler and the new rear bumper; even the seats used are made of carbon fibre which result in a weight saving of 32kg alone. Together, these components provide a weight saving of 85 kg over the standard V10 Spyder. Visual changes include add-on parts in contrasting titanium gray, a front splitter with a dual lip, flics at the sides of the front bumper, red GT badges, round exhaust tailpipes, an enlarged rear diffuser and tinted LED tail lights in a clear-glass design. The GT utilizes a 5.2 L V10 with the Quattro four-wheel-drive system. Changes from the R8 5.2 FSI Quattro include a reduction in the curb weight by around 100 kg to 1,525 kg and increased engine power to 560 PS at 8,000 rpm and 540 N⋅m at 6,500 rpm of torque. Because of these changes, the R8 GT has an increased top speed of 199 MPH and accelerates from 0–62 in 3.6 seconds, 0.3 faster than the R8 V10. As well as the weight reductions and performance improvements, the R8 GT’s lower ride height and stiffer springs and dampers create a more track ready car, if you want to try your hand at it. Versus a regular V10 spec, the R8 GT came with lightweight bucket seats and various carbon fibre, magnesium and lightweight aluminium body components. The Audi R8 GT offers so much in terms of performance, looks and a sensational exhaust note. First delivered to a famous Hong Kong Celebrity in December 2013 our R8 GT Spyder has completed minimal mileage totalling at 22,000 KM. Throughout this period our example has been very well maintained and is presented for sale with the full owners book pack. The interior of the Audi R8 GT is as you would expect, superb build quality with high-end technology. The GT though offers that little bit of extra excitement above and beyond the usual R8. Exclusively available for the R8 GT our car has the embossed one-piece suede bucket seats, black carpets with R8 GT floormats, flat-bottomed alcantara steering wheel with paddles, carbon fibre door grab handles, gear selector and dashboard trim, black dashboard that wraps around this inviting cabin with the finishing touch being the numbering 270/333 on top of the aluminium gear selector. The Audi R8 GT Spyder is a truly stunning car, the changes made from the standard V10 R8 make it such a treat to the eye whilst also offering greater performance. From factory our example was spec'ed in a sinister Black paint finish that looks stunning from every given angle and is complimented fantastically by the 19" 5-arm Y design alloy wheels finished in matching gloss black with red embossed calipers. This R8 GT comes with a whole host of factory carbon fibre components to include the front splitter, wing mirrors, front bumper fins, rear diffuser, rear engine intakes and finished with the GT wing.

BACKGROUND AND HISTORY: The Audi R8 (Type 42) is the first generation of the R8 sports car developed and manufactured by German automobile manufacturer Audi. Conceived in 2003 in concept form, the R8 was put into production in June 2006. The Type 42 is based on the Lamborghini Gallardo and shares its chassis and engine. Audi's parent company Volkswagen Group owns Lamborghini as well and components of both of the cars were shared mainly to save development costs. Production of Type 42 ended in August 2015, following the introduction of the Type 4S at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show which was based on an entirely new platform.
The Audi R8 was first conceived as the Audi LeMans Quattro concept car which was presented to the public at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show, followed by the 2003 Geneva Motor Show. Designed by Frank Lamberty, the car featured many unique features such as a Jet Blue exterior color, the front curve of the front wings shared with the TT along with Nuvolari Quattro GT, 20-inch wheels, a twin-turbocharged FSI V10 engine with a rated power output of 610 PS (449 kW; 602 hp) and 750 N⋅m (553.17 lb⋅ft), a single-frame radiator grille, aluminum sports suspension with magnetic ride shock absorbers and dark interior colors.
The body of the car was made of aluminum and carbon fiber in order to keep the weight low. Another unique feature of the car was its full LED headlamps.The R8 development program began in 2004 with Frank Lamberty's design being approved and frozen for production. In 2005, Audi announced that the name of the successful Audi R8 race car would be used for a new road car in 2007. Production body prototypes began field testing in January 2006 and the car was introduced to the public at the 2006 Paris Motor Show.
Introduced at the 2010 Wörthersee Tour, the Audi R8 GT is a high-performance variant of the R8 V10. The GT utilizes a 5.2 L (5,204 cc) V10 with the Quattro four-wheel-drive system. Changes from the R8 5.2 FSI Quattro include a reduction in the curb weight by 100 kg (220 lb) to 1,525 kg (3,362 lb) and increased engine power to 560 PS (412 kW; 552 hp) at 8,000 rpm (367 PS (270 kW; 362 hp) per ton) and 540 N⋅m (398 lb⋅ft) at 6,500 rpm of torque. Because of these changes, the R8 GT has an increased top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph) and accelerates from 0–100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds, 0.3 faster than the R8 V10. The car also features some visual changes including red brake calipers, a fixed rear wing, front bumper mounted winglets and GT badging in place of the standard V10 badging. The car was introduced for the 2012 model year and with a limited production of 333 cars worldwide
