Those 610 horses combine with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission — sorry, manual transmission fans. According to Audi, the R8 V10 Plus Spyder is the fastest production convertible it's produced, boasting a claimed zero-to-60-mph time of 3.3 seconds.

Audi will also have numerous examples of its past and present motorsports efforts on display, including: The R8 LMS GT3, a Le Mans-style racecar that shares more than 60 percent of its components with the street version of the R8 coupe; RS 3 LMS, a factory-produced race version of the RS 3 sedan for privateer racers; and S1 Sport Quattro "Pike's Peak." This year is the 30th anniversary of the S1 setting a then-record time during the Pike's Peak International Hill Climb.
