Audi concept blows its top

ANOTHER ONE: Audi will have an urban concept Spyder at the upcoming Frankfurt auto show, too.

Just a week after Audi first revealed its urban concept being readied for September’s 2011 Frankfurt auto show Ingolstadt has shown a drop-top version of the selfsame concept.

The Spyder urban concept will be displayed alongside the Sportback, each with 1+1 seating and bodies based on the principles of light construction.

However, where access to the fixed-roof Sportback model’s cabin is through the tail, entry to the Spyder’s cabin is through twin rearward-opening doors. Another key design feature is the concept’s low, continuous glass.

Like the Sportback, the Spyder concept has a light body and is powered by two e-tron electric motors.
