Default New Audi R8 launch at Mint Luxury Conference

Team,

I can see webcast going on right now -7pm, 25th Mar, for an R8 launch at Mint Luxury Conference on Hindustan Times: Latest Breaking News from India, Cricket, Bollywood, World, Business, Videos .

Not sure if this is a new car launch OR showcasing the product.

Looking at it, it seems a new model launch.

Mods: pls shift/delete the post if required

I just saw a pic of the orange R8 spyder displayed at the launch party. It was uploaded by a guest at the launch party. I am using tbhp mobile so can't upload the same here.

The R8 spyder looks hot in this orange shade! Gul Panag has been known as a car and bike fanatic for years but I never knew Audi roped her as the brand ambassador. Good thing!

Beautiful lady with a beautiful car.Class all around!

IMO the spyder will look sick with the V10 "spider" alloys!

more news here Audi R8 Spyder launched at Rs 1.47 crore!

"Looks like the Audi R8 family is growing rapidly in India – after the launch of the R8 V10 in January this year, the German sportscar has dropped it’s hard top and been launched as the R8 Spyder! With such mean styling that is now accentuated by the missing roof, the R8 Spyder isn’t just about looking the part. Under that sleek bonnet is a massive 5.2 litre V10 gasoline engine putting out over 500 PS of power and 530 Nm of torque! Making things even more interesting is the lightness of it all with Audi’s Space Frame technology that limits the R8 Spyder’s weight to just 1720 kg. The sound of the V10 itself should be all the equipment you need, but Audi has plonked in loads of gadgets to spoil customers silly. Quattro permanent all-wheel drive, LED lights, seat belt microphone, Bang & Olufsen sound system, heated seats, etc. are a sure-fire way of indulging yourself. Coming back to the business side of things, the 5.2 litre FSI engine is mated with an optional 6-speed sequential transmission with an automatic and manual mode that can be operated via paddles on the steering wheel. It even gets launch control, which is a good thing considering this car can do 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and go on to hit a top speed of over 300 km/h!"



I saw the webcast, and she did sat in the car with those heels, before the top was opened.
