The word

Audi e-Tron R8 at Le Mans

The e-Tron is an innovative supercar from Audi that was shown as a concept and will be sold in limited production numbers soon. Based on the R8 chassis, it's an all-electric speed machine.

This was shown at the future car showcase during last weekend's 24 Hours of Le Mans as five-time Le Mans winner Frank Biela drove it around the track to a wowed audience.

And so ...

This is at least the fourth paint job I've seen on this car. Will it be totally custom to the owner when purchased, since Audi will only be making 1,000 of them?
