Audi Urban Concept Spyder concept car (2011) news

Published: 17 August 2011

This is the Audi Urban Concept Spyder – the roofless version of Audi’s radical city car, due to bow in at the 2011 Frankfurt motor show.

There’s not much else to say about this Audi: it’s the same as the coupe shown earlier this month, but with a low, continuous window area and doors that open diagonally to the top.

Audi Urban Concept Spyder: the lowdown

It’s a tiny two-seat runabout powered by two electric motors. How do two people fit into this slip of a car? By sitting in a 1+1 tandem layout, like on the Caparo T1.

The Audi concept is made from a mix of carbonfibre reinforced plastic and aluminium.

The full details will be issued nearer the Frankfurt motor show. Stay tuned for more.
