Easily one of the most anticipated debuts at the Frankfurt Auto Show is the convertible version of the Audi R8. The folks over at WorldCarFans seem to have gotten a hold of a selection of official Audi images of the R8. What we do know (other than the fact that it’s incredibly stunning) is that Audi will only release the convertible version with the 525hp 5.2-liter V10 engine.

What we don’t know is what is will be called. Sure, it’s a convertible, but will it be called the R8 Spider or Spyder, like the Italians tend to do, or will Audi stick to its German routes and use the efinimate ‘Cabriolet’ term. There is also the classic ‘Roadster’ 

Audi will officially unveil the drop-top R8 on September 15th at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Be sure to check back then for our live (and frequent) updates.
