Audi urban concepts: more details
The Audi urban concept and the Spyder open-top version are city cars designed for congested streets. Their bodies are made from carbonfibre-reinforced polymer (CFRP) and each has protruding wheels covered by ‘protective plates’. A red strip – similar to the ‘side blades’ on Audi’s R8 supercar – features on both.

Both cabins have a ‘1+1’ layout, with a passenger seat mounted behind and slightly to the side of the driver’s seat. There’s no adjustment for the seats, which are integrated into the car’s structure. The driver can adjust the steering wheel and pedals to get comfortable, though.
Drive comes from two electric motors, powered by a lithium-ion battery. Audi hasn’t confirmed whether production versions are likely.
