Recently the new Audi R8 E-tron competed in the Silvretta E-Auto Rally Montafon 2010. The electric R8 was driven along the 104 route through the Austrian state of Vorarlberg by Michael Dick, member of the Board of Management of AUDI AG for Technical Development, and factory driver Lukas Luhr. The result? A double victory in the inaugural "Silvretta E-Auto Rally Montafon 2010" and 13th in the "Silvretta Classic Montafon". The car was tested in ten different mountain, valley, and timed special stages. IN order to see what the vehicle was capable of doing, you have to watch the video.

The Audi R8 E-tron is powered by four motors – two each on the front and rear axles, that delivers a total of 313 HP and 4,500 Nm of torque. It accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds and can hit a top speed of 124.27 mph.

Once again that this four ring automaker prove their credibility when it comes to cars. With those testing undergone on the Audi I think it really has lot thing to say..

is there any sticker there? I can’t see any..But I have to agree that R8 has a aggressive look. For an electric car this is the only one that really stand out..

I wonder how well Tesla Roadster could have handled that race. It has faster acceleration and a bit higher top speed. Apparently it was at least at the place judging from the pictures.

As long as it can make the same performance on uphill driving it would be on my top choice for electric cars.
