Where is a Veyron when you need one?
If it can do 305 in 4.86 secs , Imagine by the time you say 1-2 it would be doing 100

I read somewhere the 4.86 sec is for the 0-100 figure.

No no. It's 0-62mph (99.7kmph) in 4.86 seconds

Top speed is 187mph (300.9kmph)

The Bugatti Veyron:
Performance
Top speed 406 km/h
Acceleration 0 - 100 km/h under 2.7 seconds
Acceleration 0 - 300 km/h under 14.0 seconds

The acceleration figures of the 2006 Renault RS26 are as follows:

0-100 km/h: 1,7 sec.
0-200 km/h: 3,8 sec.
0-300 km/h: 8,6 sec.

So you're saying that the R8 is faster? When in those 4.86 seconds to 304 do you change through all those gears?

Here's the news:

Audi India is all set to add another variant to its R8 supercar lineup which is already on sale in hardtop guise; this time, itís the soft top R8, dubbed the R8 Spyder. Scheduled to be launched on the 25th of this month, the soft-top R8 will be available only with the V10 motor. It will join its R8 V8 and R8 V10 hardtop siblings, already on sale in India.


The R8 V10 Spyder will retain the looks of the R8 V10 coupe sans the roof. The engine is same as the one that powers the R8 V10 coupe, a 5.2-litre Lamborghini-sourced one, produces 518bhp and 54.1kgm of torque.
The R8 Spyder has thicker A and B-pillars together with added braces and panels in the floor that make up for some of the stiffness, which is lost as there is no roof.


The top is fabric and weighs about 30kg, opening and closing in 19 seconds at speeds up to 50kph. The heated glass rear window is separate from the top itself and can raise and lower independently. Expect the R8 V10 Spyder to be priced at a slight premium over the R8 V10 coupe. The R8 V10 Spyder will be sold in India as a CBU.
