Audi has announced that it will be present at the SEMA show next month. The 2010 SEMA show is scheduled to take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center, from November 2-5, and this will be the very first time Audi is attending the show.

Word is that six vehicles will be featured at the Audi stand. These will include the Audi TTS Autonomous Pikes Peak and a specially tuned R8 Spyder by STaSIS Engineering. The aim is to have select, unique concepts displayed at the show, which are sure to get the attention of the SEMA audience, say sources at Audi.

The Audi TTS Autonomous Pikes Peak has been co developed with Stanford University and Sun Microsystems in an effort to make a self-driving car, which will be able to compete in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

The R8 Spyder from STaSIS Engineering has more horsepower than the standard R8 Spyder fitted with the 5.2 liter V10 TFSI engine. With offerings such as these, the SEMA audience will definitely have some interesting features to look out for.
