Spyder Variant Added to Audi Urban Concept - Web Exclusive

Audi adds a new Spyder Variant to their Audi Urban Concept Vehicle

In addition to the hard-top version of the Audi urban concept we revealed in the News pages at www.eurotuner.com, the German manufacturer has also announced an open-air Spyder version is ready for its presentation at the Frankfurt Auto Show (17-25 September).

It will sit alongside the aforementioned Sportback model that epitomizes the radical, lightweight 1+1-seat studies.

The highly-concentrated look of the concepts, with their forward-leaning lines, free-standing 21” wheels and protective plates is said to lends a new impetus to the Audi design language.

Characteristic features of the Spyder include its low, continuous window area and doors that open diagonally upward. Inside, there is sporty, low-slung seating for two mounted in a slightly staggered position and underpinned by carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP). The driver can adjust the steering wheel and pedals for his or her own driving position. Two e-tron electric motors provide the propulsion – giving the Audi urban concepts the ability to accelerate powerfully. A lithium-ion battery supplies the energy for extended city tours.
