Audi has released pricing information for the 2012 R8 GT Spyder. See how much it costs inside

Audi has announced the 2012 R8 GT Spyder will be priced from $210,000 in the United States (excluding taxes and a $1,200 destination charge).

Available next month, the model features an aggressive body kit with a front splitter, a rear diffuser and a carbon fiber rear spoiler. The roadster also has carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) body panels, a magnesium engine frame, a sport-tuned suspension (which reduces the ride height by 10mm) and high-performance brakes.

Power comes from a 5.2-liter V10 engine which produces 560 PS (412 kW / 552 hp) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the model - which weighs 187 lbs (85 kg) less than the standard R8 V10 Spyder - to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 197 mph (317 mph).

Only 50 units will be available in the United States and one will be auctioned off at the Boca Raton Concours d'Elegance Gala on February 25th.
