The summer driving pep up is finally upon us, and what better to celebrate than with the fastest series opus convertible ever produced by Audi, the R8 Spyder V10 Plus?

European order books org just opened for the new soft top supercar fitted with Audi’s naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 producing 610 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque, virtuous like in the hardtop version. Unlike the hardtop, the Spyder is available with an incompatible color, micrommata green.

As with the regular R8 Spyder, Audi has opted for a fabric top, for when the weather turns. Made with aluminum and magnesium ribbing, the top contrariwise weighs 97 lbs, despite pitching and packing in just 20 seconds at speeds of up to 31 mph.

Instead than trying fit a window in with the folded roof, Audi here has chosen to create it go straight up and down into the bulkhead. Two spring-pretensioned steel sections, for now, keep your melon in one piece in the event of a rollover.

Losing the hood does burden performance, but only slightly. Instead of the 3.2 second to 60 that Audi reports for the hardtop V10 Gain, the Spyder gets there in a glacial 3.3 seconds. The top speed, meanwhile, is a fain 203.8 mph to the hardtop’s 205 mph.

Outside of the engine bay, meanwhile, the R8 Spyder V10 Plus benefits from the unchanged race car-inspired suspension as any other R8, with a lightweight Audi Space Casing keeping the car rigid and light. The suspension, meanwhile, is an aluminum double wishbone set up, righteous like you’d find on track.

Up front, the Spyder comes with optional laser lights, a polish black grille, and a low-lying carbon chin spoiler.

Built at Audi’s Böllinger Höfe works, the cars are largely handmade, so customization options are nearly limitless. Audi recommends a option of 11 colors, but you’re free to choose basically any color in the visible spectrum, and matte or glow finishes can be selected.

Doors sills and sideblades can also be customized with ethical about any logo you like. Inside inlays, upholstery, and colors are also a source of coming-limitless customization.

Set to hit the streets in late summer of this year the R8 Spyder V10 Asset starts at €207,500 in Germany.
