As an R8 fan, I was psyched to see that Audi has developed an all electric vehicle concept on the R8 frame. The Audi e-Tron matches beauty with performance with 4 electric motors, driving each wheel and providing Audi's signature Quattro all-wheel-drive.
Powered by a liquid cooled Li-ion battery pack that account for a little less than 1/3 the cars weight, the e-Tron has an estimated range of about 154 miles.
It's 313 hp may not blow your hair back but the 3,319 lb-ft of torque will. It should go 0-60 mph in about 4.1 seconds, a little more sluggish than the Tesla, but faster than the original R8.
