What do you do when the big news you have to announce impacts a few dozen people in the U.S.? You add a little extra for hundreds more.
 
That’s what Audi did when it announced pricing for the 2011 Audi R8 Spyder 5.2 Quattro. The sexy drop-top version of the R8 will cost $161,000 to start when it goes on sale in the U.S. in August.

The hand-built sports car won’t sell at high levels, but it’s not supposed to. For a more attainable rush, Audi fans were told that they’ll be able to get their hands on an RS5 coupe … in the 2012 calendar year. Yes, they have to wait another year and a half for the 450-horsepower V-8 that will be the only RS on the market in the U.S. The S5 is currently the only high-performance trim of the A5 available at a price of $53,100. We expect the RS5 to top the list price of the last RS 4, which for 2008 stickered at $66,910.
