Here are the first spy shots of the upcoming 2012 Audi R8 GT Spyder following teaser illustrations released last month.

The undisguised R8 GT Spyder features the familiar GT body kit including 19-inch alloy wheels and that large rear spoiler. The R8 GT Spyder will also come with the same power plant as its GT coupe sibling - a 5.2-liter V10 engine that develops 560 PS (412 kW / 553 hp) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. 0-100 km/h will come in at approximately 3.8 seconds and the car will have a top speed of 311 km/h (193 mph).

Rumor has it that production will be limited to just 333 units. The Audi R8 GT Spyder will makes its debut at the Frankfurt motor show this fall.
