New Footage of Audi R8 E-Tron on the Ring

Last week, the Audi R8 E-Tron became the fastest ever electric production car to lap the Nordschleife. It achieved the feat extremely quickly, in 8:09, a time similar to that of a standard Audi RS4, Renault Megane RS 265 Trophy and a BMW M6 E63.
Audi have released a 12-minte official video detailing the run, including onboard footage and normal exterior footage, as well as helicopter scenes. It is very odd to see a car going as fast as this R8 E-Tron is going, but at the same tame hearing absolutely no sound apart from brake squeal and tire roar.

However, once Louts get their Evora 414E production-ready, a car with 408 hp and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft), the E-Tron will definitely get a ‘green’ run for its money. We can’t wait for the first head-to-head test of at least two sporty EVs and extended range hybrids.
