Audi R8 e-Tron Electric Car Concept Revealed

Exciting new pictures of a hotly anticipated Audi electric car concept have been leaked, a week before the ‘official’ unveiling at the Frankfurt Motorshow.

The car will apparently be called the ‘e-Tron,’ and as you can see from the pictures, will take a lot of its design cues from the R8, but with a different front grille, LED headlights, wheels and rear end. Inside, the cabin is also quite different, featuring a driver-biased center console with two screens; one for the rear view camera and one showing a navigation map (see picture gallery after the jump).

The German outfit have not yet officially admitted that the e-Tron exists, although speculation is reaching fever point in the blogsphere, not least because of hints on the company’s own ElectricityUntamed site.
