Spy Shots: Audi's Topless V10 Rivals Maranello's Finest

Audi R8 Spyder

Although "Iron Man II," staring Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, won’t hit movie theaters until May 2010, Brenda Priddy's spy shooting crew recently caught RDJ driving a pre-production Audi R8 5.2L V10 convertible alongside a camera car. Decked out in full production trim, including the V10 badges, Priddy says that this is probably the best look we'll get of the four-ringed halo car until the expected Frankfurt auto show debut.

Priddy adds that the latest rumors suggest that the V10 powertrain may be the only one offered in the droptop. The only thing missing is IM II co-star Scarlett Johansson in the passenger seat.
