2014 Audi e-tron Spyder

 |  October 18, 2011

The Audi e-tron Spyder is being dubbed as a diesel-electric roadster, a pairing of active descriptors that further prove the advancement in automotive ingenuity. The 69-cell lithium-ion battery pack is good for 9.1-kilowatt hours, weighs around 220 pounds and is situated up front together with the electric motors. Though the diesel fuel tank carries just 13.2 gallons, the e-tron Spyder has an on-paper range of over 600 miles per fill-up thanks to its lithium-ion-fueled parallel help. The Spyder moves from stand still to 60 mph in around 4.2 seconds, spinning the large 20 inch wheels like an airplane turbine engine. While still just a prototype, the price has been valued at $2.7 million USD. It is a stunning piece of automotive design and technology. via: autoblog
