Audi to show off urban concept car

Audi has announced plans to show off its latest urban concept car at the Frankfurt motor show in September.

The radical-looking 1+1 seat, ultra-light car is specially designed for congested urban spaces.

The manufacturer said theAudi urban concept "combines elements of a racing car, a roadster, a fun car and an urban car".

A carbonfibre-reinforced polymer (CFRP) has been used to make its sleek body.

It comes with protruding 21-inch wheels, with the surrounding 'protective plates' featuring strips of LED lights.

The car can accommodate two people in a one-and-one design

Although the seats cannot be adjusted as they are integrated into the car's structure, the steering wheel and pedals can be adjusted by the driver.
