Default Frankfurt Preview: Audi e-Tron electric supercar

Audi E Tron Renderings — Autoblog
Apparently, electric cars aren't such a bad idea after all. Just days after Audi of America President Johan de Nysschen proclaimed that diesels were the future in lieu of electrons, Audi's own electric supercar concept will be officially debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show. While we're anxiously awaiting Audi's scheduled press conference, a slew of renderings managed to make their way to the internet this morning that show some of the car's interesting visual details.

Called the e-Tron, Audi's eco-friendly supercar concept is based heavily on the underpinnings of the German automaker's awesome R8. Major differences include a closed-off front grille, revised front and rear fascias with C-shaped LED head lamps and a unique set of multispoke wheels. Perhaps the most obvious change is the deletion of the standard R8's trademark side blades. We sorta miss 'em, though it's understandable that aerodynamics are the name of the game for this concept car.

We're still not sure what exactly will power the e-Tron, but the smart money is on a fully electric drivetrain. Check out our gallery of official-looking renderings below.

Doesn't the rear portion look a lot like the DB9? Sharp features though!

Default Audi e- tron Spyder Concept Unveiled!

The Audi e-tron Spyder Concept unveiled at the Paris Auto Show, might appear to be a topless version of the e- tron Coupe shown at the Detroit Auto Show held in January. However, the Spyder e- tron comes not as a pure electric vehicle like the e- tron Coupe, but as a plug-in hybrid one.

The hybrid drive train of the car comprises of 300 hp twin turbo V6 TDI powering the rear axle and 88 hp is feeded by two electric motors to the front one. Together, the a total torque of over 1000 Nm is delivered by the two systems. The awesome combination between the diesel engine and the electric motors and batteries, allows the car to clock a mileage of 1000 km. This is possible, because the otherwise big engine eats up only 2.2 litres of fuel every 100 km.
