Audi news - Audi to build electric R8? - 2009
What are those sneaky scamps at Audi planning now? An electric car, if you believe the, er, buzz.
They’ve just launched a viral website called Electricity Untamed and it’s preparing us for a shock. (We have lots of electric-based puns available for this story, but we’ll stop there.)
Yep, the rumours are that the firm will, or might, unveil an electro car at this year’s Frankfurt show.
The website features videos of electricity misbehaving itself and a statement which reads: ‘On September 15 electricity, and all its force and power, will run free and completely untamed.’ The 15th is the first day of the Frankfurt show and is generally when manufacturers unveil their little surprises.
So what will Audi’s be? A battery-powered TT? An R8? If it is an electric R8, and if it’s anything like the Tesla, it should go like Usain Bolt being chased down by a randy Vanessa Feltz.
What electric Audi would you like to see?
