This is Audi’s stunning all-electric supercar – BGR

Posted: Tuesday, April 07, 2015

If you have an extra $120,000 lying around, we highly recommend you at least consider the 2016 Audi R8 e-tron. Audi’s first all-electric version of the R8 is quite a sight to behold, and its beastly 456hp dual-engine setup delivers performance that easily matches the car’s menacing look.

Of course, most of us will never own Audi’s electric monster… but looking is free and these new photo of the R8 e-tron are definitely worth drooling over.

The dual rear-mounted electric motors in Audi’s e-tron produce 456 horsepower and 679 lb-ft of torque, capable of propelling the supercar from a stop to 62 mph in just 3.9 seconds. The car’s top speed is 155 mph, but all that power and speed still come with impressive range; the R8 e-tron’s 92-kWh will take the car an estimated 279 miles per charge.

But enough about the R8 e-tron — let’s just stare at it for a while.

The photos below are a small sampling from the set Road & Track took of the Audi R8 e-tron in Geneva, and the rest can be seen by following the link to the source post.
