that churns out 430HP launching the R8 Spyder to 100km/h (62mph) i
4.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 299km/h or 186mph

In comparison, the 525HP R8 Spyder 5.2 V10 goes from zero to 100km/
in 4.1 sec and achieves a top speed of 313 km/h (195 mph)

The V8 engine is available with either a six-speed manual gearbox o
