2009 Audi R8 E-Tron Concept Revealed

September 14, 2009

The highlight of Audi’s stands at this week’s 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show will undoubtedly by a new electrified version of the company’s popular R8 sports car, which has been revealed today in all its glory.

Dubbed the e-Tron, the latest concept car will have to compete for the spotlight with an all-electric Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and BMW’s Vision EfficientDynamics concept car.

Based on the regular R8 sports car, the e-Tron differs thanks to its concealed bodywork, unique grille, custom interior, new LED lights and a special red paint scheme.

No official details have been released yet, including whether the concept will feature an all-electric powertrain or some form of hybrid but that fact that it appears to have no cooling vents tends to make us think it’s the former. Stay tuned for an update!
