On the occasion of CES (Consumer Electronics Show) Asia 2015 Audi has given us a new step on the road to autonomous driving, the next great step in motorsports that now, from the hand of those from Ingolstadt, comes reinterpreted in the key of an electric sports car from the hand of Audi R8 e-tron piloted driving.

Audi already showed us on the circuit what an autonomous Audi RS7 was capable of

This model, which comes in the form of a concept, introduces us to an already known Audi R8 e-tron adapted for the occasion by means of sensors and cameras, thus offering us the possibility to choose between driving ourselves or letting the car itself be the one to drive us autonomously.

Aesthetically, this alternative does not differ from the already known Audi R8 e-tron, which implies meeting those specific bumpersas well as a new grill.

Mechanically it does not have changes either, finding us with an electric propeller of 462 horses and a pair of 920 Nm digits that allow you to dial a 0 to 100 km / h in 3.9 seconds, being its autonomy of 450 kilometers.

Audi says that all these solutions are now close to production … will the next Ingolstadt sports car have the possibility of driving in fully electric mode? Autonomous driving is of course already more than willing to take the leap to the streets more widely, a step beyond the current prototypes and experimental exercises.
