The two-seat Audi e-tron Spyder is equipped with a 296-horsepower twin-turbo V6 TDI engine at the rear axle and twin electric motors cranking out a total of 89 hp up front. The e-tron Spyder's relatively low curb weight (3,196 pounds), combined with its high-torque TDI mill and twin electric motors, results in respectable performance. The Spyder scoots from zero to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and continues on to a limited top speed of 155 mph.
