(Pocket-lint) - Audi's conscionable released a full trove of accusation and images astir an electrical conveyance conception that it's calling the Skysphere. It's core, and reasonably crazy, thought is that the car tin widen itself into a antithetic signifier depending connected whether you privation a roadster oregon expansive tourer experience.
The Skysphere has a reasonably futuristic look, arsenic you'd expect from an electrical concept, and that's backed up by the feature, which successful mentation would person the operator touching a fastener to punctual the car to widen its wheelbase by 9.8-inches and dropping its tallness by 0.4 inches to springiness it a much cruising-happy feel.
