Audi has revolutionized the soft top car model, by integrating a lightweight top that keeps the car’s center of gravity low and minimizes extra weight. The top is capable of retracting at speeds up to approximately 30 mph, and folds and closes in a mere 19 seconds. A separate, heated glass window is also part of the Spyder’s overhead design, and lowers into the bulkhead at the touch of a button.

The beauty of the car’s body is another head-turning element of the Spyder. Slick air intlets and curved LED lights on the car’s nose lend a true sports car feel to the car. The Spyder sports full-LED headlights, which use light-emitting diodes for the high and low beams, turn signals, and daytime lights. The lights are low energy consumers, and distribute light expertly.

The interior design of the Spyder is another impressive feature of the car. The roomy interior includes luxurious leather seats and compartments, and a state-of-the-art sound system from Bang & Olufsen. In fact, the leather used in the car is specially colored to reflect the infared rays of the sun, in order to keep the seats cooler. Six different color schemes are also available for the interior, in order to meet the specific needs of any Spyder driver.

Red rings encircle the different controls, which include a lap timer for would-be racers.

Beyond the standard features of the Spyder, the options for Audi’s sports car seem to run the gamut. One of the most talked-about features is a worldwide first, a seatbelt microphone. This microphone is intended to allow the user to talk on the phone hands-free, even while driving on the highway with the top down. Microphones are found in both of the car’s seatbelts, in addition to the frame of the windshield. Navigation systems and rearview cameras to facilitate parking are other options for the Audi Spyder.
