Two spyshots were released showing the 2012 Audi R8 e-tron interior. The finished interior trim reveals noticeable differences with respect to the current Audi R8 range. Some of these parts provide us even with an early look into the interior of the second generation Audi R8.
The Audi e-tron is powered by four electric motors, one for each wheel, with a total output of 313 horsepower and a whopping torque of 4,500Nm(!). The e-tron is able to accelerate from zero to 100km/h in 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 200km/h. The e-tron could travel up to 250km on a single charge.
Compared to the R8, the full electric concept is distinguished by a ventilated hood, a revised grille and additional carbon fiber accents on the outside. On the inside there is no handbrake, but there are a new central control unit for the MMI multimedia system, a new multifunctional steering wheel and new controls behind the steering wheel.
There is a big chance that these changes will also be included in the next-generation Audi R8.
