Mystery Audi Sports Coupe / Spyder (R4?) Filmed at Ski Resort in the Alps


Audi gone viral or someone at the right place, with... almost the right equipment at the right time? Well, we can't answer that, but we do know that a Youtube user filmed a series of videos showing a mysterious Audi sports coupe (or Spyder) in covers being transferred via helicopter to the Olympia Ski Resort in the Tyrolean Alps, close to Innsbruck, in Austria - or at least that's what we understood, so any corrections welcome. The person who filmed the car said Audi was making some sort of a promotional video.

The mysterious Audi sport coupe's shape looks very similar to the e-Tron Concept model shown at the Detroit motor show earlier this year, but that's all we could make about the vehicle from the videos we've added below.

While the possibilities are almost endless, recent reports from Germany suggest that along with the A7 Sportback and S1 hot hatch, Audi will lift the covers off a more production ready version of the e-Tron Concept called the R4 - possibly in Spyder form- at this month's Paris Motor Show.

Could this be that car or is it something different such as a concept version for a new TT? Watch the videos below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

Hat tip to Marcus!

Looks like they're practicing for the official unveiling of the R4. Should be quite spectacular.

looks like an e-tron because of the pulled back headlights and tugged out grill

I guess it has something to do with audi's quattro 30th-anniversary. There were 2 ads when Audi quattro sallons drove up a ski jump in the past. German car papers wrote that Audi is preparing a special car for that birthday, perhaps even powered by a 5-cyl. Maybe that's what they are working on?

It could be the e-tron Convertible Concept which is, as reports claim, expected to be revealed at the Paris Motor Show.
