E-Tron Spyder From Audi

Written by tonks on October 24, 2011

It is time to introduce a new supercar from the Audi showroom. Their newest model, the E-Tron Spyder is an eco-friendly sports car (if that is possible) has been modeled after the E-Tron electric car concept. The biggest difference is that this model has been designed without a roof and it is a plug-in diesel hybrid.

The new model is quipped with a petrol engine and is also a hybrid. Reports say that we should start to see models rolling out in three years and they will be offering it in the coupe and roadster designs. The price tag will be somewhere in the ballpark of £50,000.

At first glance you will admire the beauty and the size. It is 4.06m in length, 1.81m wide, and 1.11m tall. This makes it shorter and a great deal lower than the Porsche Boxster. The exterior is made with carbon fiber that helps to give it defined details.

The question that everyone wants to know is, “Where is the plug-in?” For a hybrid such as this they could not make something that would deter from the sophisticated look. That is why Audi was able to place the plug in behind the four ringed badge that is located on the bonnet. You only need to touch a simple button and it will reveal itself to you.

The interior is as sleek as the exterior. It is made with leather, carbon fiber, and aluminum. It has all of the right amenities with an added bonus of electric seat adjustments. Under the hood is a 3.0 liter twin turbo V6 diesel engine. When you combine this with the electric engine the car can reach a torque of 1,200Nm and a total output of 382bhp. Audi believes that with this power it can reach 0-62mph in only 4.4 seconds. We look forward to seeing her in action when she is completely finished!

This one truly looks like a super car. Awesomely designed, powerful, luxurious and got all the features a supercar should have. 0-62mph in 4.4 seconds with 382bhp is simply awesome.

The front grill resembles the Aston Martin Vantage.
