The Audi R8 e-tron
has just been spotted running some hot laps on the vaunted Nurburgring
track in Germany. The test mule features large 'e-tron' decals on the sides and windshield and is a testament to the German's hard work on their electric lineup. The R8 e-tron, at first sight on the track, seems a bit like a contradiction - identical R8 coupe styling with a very aggressive look and a deceptively quiet noise. For a car without exhaust pipes, it shouldn't surprise, but given our gross familiarity with the supercar it just seems a bit...off.
