Audi R8 e-tron crashes at the Nurburgring

A prototype Audi R8 e-tron has crashed at the Nurburgring this week, during pre-production testing.

The driver of the 230 kW (308 hp) R8 e-tron, which broke the lap record for an electric car last month, hit the barriers twice after losing control at Pflanzgarten between the first and the second camber, before coming to a halt in the wrong direction. Thankfully, the driver was fine, but the R8 needed a tow truck to take it back to the garage.

Many thanks to Andrus at Gmotors for the photos. You can view the rest of them here.
