Audi launches hybrid sports car

Audi has unveiled the Audi e-tron Spyder, a plug-in hybrid sports car at the Qatar Motor Show, Gulf Times has reported. The 1,450kg Spyder can accelerate to 100km/hour in 4.4 seconds with a top speed of 250km/h. "Thanks also to its low weight, short wheelbase and perfect 50:50 weight distribution for dynamic handling, the Audi e-tron Spyder has all the drivability of a go-kart – good on bends and neutral right up to the very high handling limit," an Audi spokesperson said.
