Report: The Audi R8 e-tron weighs 4,056lbs

AutoCar recently received some more details about the new Audi R8 e-tron, their idea of what an all-electric supercar should be.

While the traditional gas Audi R8 receives a V10 in different degrees of tune, it only weighs 3,428lbs for the standard model while the S model weighs an impressive 3,205lbs.

The e-tron version on the other hand weighs 4,056lbs, which is quite a lot.

The extra weight comes from its EV powertrain, capable of 462hp and 679 lb-ft of torque combined from a series of electric motors and a massive 92 kWh lithium-ion battery with enough capacity to provide 279 miles worth of range.
