Video: Audi e-tron Spyder caught on the road in California

. Sunday, October 9, 2011

We just came across a very cool video on YouTube catching the Audi e-tron Spyder "in the wild." Look closely and you'll notice this car is slightly different than the concept revealed last year in Paris (the added vents in the hood). Surrounded by corporate Q7s and crew, it appears Audi was filming the car on California's scenic Mulholland Drive, most likely for a new PR campaign. It seems that after nearly a year, we haven't seen the last of the e-tron Spyder.

Unfortunately, we are unable to embed the video (it's been disabled by the user), so you'll have to go directly to YouTube to watch.

Needless to say, details are scarce but obviously Audi has something new planned for the e-tron Spyder. We'll be sure to keep this on our radar and update when we know more.

UPDATE: It turns out that in addition to a corporate photo shoot, Audi invited select journalists to drive this car in California (that is what you're seeing in this video). We've included links to the various stories and Audi photo galleries below.
