race track in Germany serves as something of a litmus test for performance automobiles, with a handful of automakers constantly trying to one-up eachother for the fastest lap times in various categories. The latest to make the headlines at the Green
Hell was Audi
, which set the fastest time for an electric vehicle with its R8 e-tron prototype. Driven by ex-DTM racer Markus Winkelhock, the e-tron lapped the 12.9-mile track in an impressive 8:09.099 last month, but only now has Audi released official video footage of the record lap.
