Audi R8 5.2 FSI Coupe and Spyder - Click above for high-res gallery

The V10-powered Audi R8 5.2 FSI is a fantastic car, whether in coupe or convertible form. Heck, it's even great in brown, as proven by the pair of cars on the show floor. It might not be our first color choice for the German supercar, although it was a nice change from the usual white, silver, and gray cars that usually are strewn about the Audi stand.

Not that it matters, of course. A look on Audi USA's web site reveals that the color isn't available here in the States. Neither are the carbon ceramic brakes that are hiding behind the 19-inch wheels. A sign of things to come? Perhaps, and we wouldn't be too heartbroken if they came up as future options. Check out the gallery below and decide for yourself whether the color suits the R8.

      Tried of seeing the boring white, sliver, black run of the mill, put no kind throught into it colors.

      That is one beautiful car, but they definitely need to incorporate the side blades.
      They forced it down our throats until we were convinced that they looked good and now that we love them, they take them away.

        ... because they don't work without a fixed roof.

      Stunning colour, so good to see something actually different that doesn't make you want to vomit

      Would love to see it with the lid on.

      Just goes to show...

      Good design is good design... Great design can even make odd things look good.

      I'd still take carbon dark gray, maybe even semi-gloss... with CF details, and semi-gloss red thin stripe from part of the lower part of the side-blade, down along the rocker panel, and around a blacked-out front grille... as a car homage to the SR71 Blackbird.

      Otherwise Audi's nice dark blue.

      No brown for me, even if the car is good looking enough to pull it off.

      That's a US spec vehicle, judging by the strange orange things on the side that you guys have on your cars, but, I guess they can whip one up with whatever combo they want, it doesn't mean they'll sell it.

      I like the brown, as a show car, I wouldn't want to drive it all the time, (not that I could)!, I'd definitely go for their Daytona Grey, (dark-ish), or Lava Grey (dark). With matching side blades. Or, as camouflaged as they come!! :P

      I would call that a color guaranteed never to be used by a car company:
      Rust

      One word pretty much sums up the look of that car:

      Wow.

      Regardless of what you call it, it is a horrible color to show a new model in. What are they thinking?????
