It appears that Roding has been hard at work on developing the company's Roadster prototype. Spy photographers managed to click a few photos of a new version of the vehicle out for laps at the Nürburgring, and the latest iteration is a massive leap forward from the old fin-laden mule we first saw this time last year. Whereas the first version looked as if it was the product of an electric shaver and an Audi R8, the newest version actually looks plenty becoming. While some of the original angles remain, the carbon fiber bodywork now wears a more proportioned appearance.

There's no word as to what's under the hood, but we're guessing the machine still relies on the same turbocharged six cylinder as its predecessor. That means buyers can expect around 300 horsepower, which should be enough to get the 2,100-pound lightweight to speed in a hurry. Last we heard, Roding planned to unveil a production version of the car this year, but it's beginning to look as if we won't see the final version until 2012 at the earliest.

      I knew that was just a prototype. It had to be. This looks much more like an Audi R8, but that's not a bad thing considering what it used to look like.

      I've actually never even heard of this car...or it's coupe bretheren before. I guess I really don't know everything.

      The improvement here is amazing. It went from the classroom musings of a 1980's 3rd grader to something that is very intriguing.
