Audi R8 GT Spyder Breaks the $200,000 Barrier

Only 50 coming to the U.S.

by on Feb.06, 2012

Audi's R8 GT Spyder is its first model to top $200,000.

Start saving your change but don’t wait too long.  Audi says it plans to import only 50 copies of the hand-built R8 GT Spyder convertibles later this month.

The most exclusive version of what is already Audi’s top-line model, the topless supercar will carry a sticker price of $210,000, making it the German maker’s most expensive offering to date.  And that’s before you add on $1,200 for the destination charges and as much as $3,000 more for gas-guzzler taxes.


By comparison, that’s a $38,000 premium over the current Audi R8 Spyder.

For the money, the 5.2-liter R8 V-10 gets bumped up to 560 horsepower, enough to launch the GT Spyder from 0 to 60 in just 3.8 seconds – also making it the quickest Audi ever – with a top speed of 197 mph.
