1991 Audi quattro Spyder Concept

Wide, low and painted in glowing Fiji Orange, 
the quattro Spyder caused a stir at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1991. 
It was Audi’s first thoroughbred sports car and the first Audi with an aluminum body. 
The body consisted of a load-bearing frame and a separate skin. 
The entire vehicle weighed just 1,100 kilograms (2,425.08 lb). 
Powered by a 2.8-liter V6 engine with an output of 128 kW (174 hp) 
allowed this two-seater to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 6.0 seconds 
before reaching its top speed of 250 km/h (155.34 mph). 
A specially designed quattro powertrain distributed power to all four wheels. 
Its interior featured a lot of aluminum parts, foreshadowing the character of the first TT (1998). 
Never went into production.
