For all of their vast experience in the auto tuning world, Mansory has never built a project for the Audi R8. Sure, there have been Ferraris, Porsches, and Mercedes’, but no Audis.

All that, however, is about to change since the German tuning company has brought their very first program for the Audi supercar. The package is actually for the R8 V10 Spyder, which will be introduced to Mansory expertise courtesy of cosmetic, aerodynamic, and performance upgrades.

Fresh off of the box are the aforementioned cosmetic and aerodynamic improvements, which include a new bonnet, a new front grill, side skirts, and a new rear bumper. There’s also a new front spoiler that provides more downforce, a new rear apron with an integrated rear diffuser, and a set of 20" lightweight forged Mansory wheels rounding out the physical modifications on the R8 V10 Spyder.

Mansory is also offering a comprehensive interior program for its customers. Depending on tastes and preferences, customers can choose to dress up their R8 V10 Spyder with a new leather upholstery with Mansory couture and carbon applications, illuminated door entry strips, and aluminum pedals and footrests.

Of course, making the car prettier is not the only significant part of this Mansory-tuned R8 V10 Spyder. There’s also the matter of the car’s 5.2-liter V10 FSI engine, which sees a significant performance upgrade in the form of a newly-installed sports air filter, and a news sport exhaust system. The resulting modifications give the R8 V10 Spyder a performance boost that takes an already powerful 525 horsepower all the way up to 552 horsepower, to go with an increased peak torque of 406 lb/ft of torque.

UPDATE 11/22/11: Mansory has released new photos of their work on the Audi R8 Spyder. It was later than we thought, but nevertheless, the photos are well worth the delay. Check them out in the gallery section!

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

It’s a good thing only that it has an impressive and awesome engine specification which could truly give a nice and stunning speed performance for this Audi convertible. However, just like them, I’m not so fond with its interior.

Yeah! It is not really suited on the decent and exclusive exterior appearance of this Audi R8. Moreover, I noticed that its 20" lightweight wheels only add the perfection looks on it. smiley

The sporty interior of this R8 is really cool, but I think it’s not suited for the classy and decent exterior looks of it. However,

The wheel is looking so attractive with this coupe! Although it doesn’t have lots of exterior modifications, it still looks very awesome on that. However, I have to agree that its interior is not truly impressive.

Well, the interior is not really great, but I’m still impressed with the angst and aggressiveness of this R8 and even on its engine output. However, I found out that its competitor is more powerful than on it.

It maybe looks so great and cool with its exterior detailing, but I noticed that its interior really not looks good, although I noticed that it had a sporty touch. Anyway, I’m already satisfied with its engine.

A V10 R8 Spyder! That is great! Well, I would surely wait for the market production of it. I hope that it wouldn’t be too expensive! smiley Anyway, I wonder if what is the interior feature of it?

I also love the decent appearance of this Spyder but I either. I’m not so fond with the interior touch of this one. I also noticed that the headlight of this one was expressing lots of angst.

I’m getting much interest with this super-car, Definitely it blends and became surprisingly distinct and charming. Its comprehensive interior complements evenly right for the car.

Sorry, but I either is not impressed with the interior touch of this R8 V10, but the decency is quite impressive for me and the engine is I think too powerful for a convertible car like this.

This is one of the best model for R8 and for me it’s much better if they change something on the appearance of the car or some added features to it.

  (858) posted on 09.23.2011

I don’t think so, the interior touch seems lousy, sorry for that SpeedGuy but the decency of it is simply stunning even the figure performance of it.

I’m not agree to you Silver Lingio. The interior of this car is impressive. The combination of the color is really great.

What for use, the hole in the side of the car? BTW, I like the style of the hood with black lining and also the rims is great because of the hurricane.

  (415) posted on 09.19.2011

I like the hurricane style of rims and the front bumper is like hummer bumper. The style of this car is great and also the performance is great.

The look of this spyder is really impressive, and I also noticed its powerful engine, really suits in a race smiley but I must say that it had a not impressive interior touch!

  (445) posted on 09.15.2011

This convertible car seems so expensive. It has a perfect bumper and shapes for party goers like me. I’m starting to love this convertible car.

Great car. I am so impress to this car. The design of the car and the rims of the car really good to me. This car has 552 Horse Power @ RPM and 5200 cc.

Another awesome convertible car in Audi, great! This car is quite impressive, and the interior seems so vast for a convertible car, but I don’t like the interior touch of it.

The R8-V10 reminds me a Lamborghini Gallardo, specially the rear part. Since Audi owns the Italian factory, I guess the German response to the Gallardo would be more than a chance.
