German motor giant Audi has unveiled its bizarre new concept car at the Frankfurt International Motor Show.
Spyder – the nippy little lithium-ion battery-powered two-seater, which rolls on 21-inch wheels is said to be ideal for “extended city tours”.
According to Audi, the car “does not fit under any of the conventional categories” and combines elements of “a racing car, a fun car and an urban car”.
“The Audi urban concept is not based on any previous model – its development is solely oriented on the strict principles of lightweight construction, efficiency and reduction,” the Daily Mail quoted a spokesperson as saying.
“The result is a concept car with no unnecessary weight, and one that concentrates on the pure essence of sporty motion.
“The Audi urban concept has a sleek body. The wheels are free-standing, their surrounding protective plates feature blinking strips of LED lights,” the spokesperson added.
