The Audi e-tron Spyder is the third car in the e-tron series. Featuring a rétro-inspired open layout and a hybrid plug-in powertrain, it evolves the brand’s design language by using elements of the previous concepts as well as styling cues from the current models.

Audi e-tron Spyder ConceptFollowing the 2009 e-tron Concept and the 2010 e-tron Detroit Concept, the e-tron Spyder is the open version of Audi’s series of proposals for a futuristic hybrid sportscar.

The design of the Spyder is strongly based on the e-tron Detroit Concept, especially in the front and in the side view.

Compared to the e-tron Detroit, the Spyder has slightly larger dimensions, with a length of 4.06 m, a width of 1.81 m, a height of 1.11 m and a wheelbase of 2.43 m.

They form a single unit with the windshield, which is strongly bowed and "inclined like the visor of a helmet."

The the rear end features a dark-grey fascia that integrated the LED tail lights and the rear grilles. Both these elements show a clear inspiration from the R8 supercar.

The e-tron Spyder has a hybrid plug-in powertrain with a rear-mounted 6 cylinder TDI engine capable of 300 hp – derived from the biturbo unit of the A8.
