Audi R8 eTron is a high-performance sports car with electric propulsion. Four electric motors, two in front and two in the back, are connected to the wheels. With a maximum output of 230 kW, 313 hp and 600 Nm torque, the Audi R8 eTron accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.8 seconds. The maximum speed of the sporty electric car is limited at 200 km / h.
With the newest technology incorporated into every detail of the car, this car is of very high quality. A liquid cooled lithium-ion battery and power electronics are located directly behind the passenger seat.
This arrangement contributes to an optimal centre of gravity and weight distribution between the front and read axles. The 550-pound lithium-ion battery in the R8 eTron consists of a large number of individual cells with high energy density, which are connected together. The battery provides enough power to cover about 250 kilometers, or 155 miles, according to the NEDC cycle.
When the battery is completely drained, it takes between six and eight hours to charge with a voltage of 230V. With heavier current, the process takes about two and a half hours. The battery incorporates technology called regenerative braking, that allows the battery to recharge whenever braking or decelerating, extending the battery life of the car.
The rear axle provides around 70 percent of the torque in normal working conditions. The Audi eTron incorporates lateral dynamics using the four motors. Selective acceleration of individual wheels and active torque distribution are perfectly calculated.
Under steer and over steer can be precisely offset with small increases in power and braking interventions. Systematic lightweight construction is particularly important for electric vehicles. The body of the Audi R8 eTron is aluminium, designed with the Audi Space Frame technology and weighs less than 200 kg. It helps the high performance sports car weigh a mere 1,500 kilograms.

The base 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine has been replaced with a new 3.2-liter FSI engine, and it has strong performance with 3.7 and 4.2-liter petrol engine options, with the 4.2 being more appealing to fans of high speed.
There is also a refined 6.0-liter W12 engine that has an output of 450 horsepower and provides impressive performance. Currently, this is the most powerful diesel engine Audi currently makes, although the 3.0-liter TDI works smoothly and is still the most fuel efficient of the three.
All models except the 3.2-liter have four-wheel drive with a six-speed automatic transmission. The adaptive air suspension on the A8 has four settings, each built for a different kind of road and a different kind of driver.
Overall management for such a big car is very good. The A8 cabin is well insulated from outside noise, and proven to be more accessible than its rivals BMW and Mercedes.
All materials inside the cabin are of excellent quality, the tip top for the price. All major controls and instruments are easy to reach, although it will take some time to get used to managing the stereo, satellite navigation and suspension settings all from one console.
The Audi A8 has a huge interior space, especially in models that come with the extended wheelbase. Even tall people seated on the rear seat can experience absolute comfort in this supercar. The trunk is deep, and comes included with all the safety equipment you would expect from such a high-end car.

The Audi A6 handling is really nice and the body tilt is minimized when driving at higher speeds around corners. Compared to their German rivals, the Audi A6 is an expensive investment. On the other hand, the resale price of an older Audi is very respectable.
Reliability of the Audi A6 is not a concern, although there were some problems with the previous model. Everything inside the care reaches for the highest standards. The dashboard is beautiful with lots of features, but the more advanced the features of car, the more time it takes for the driver to learn them.
Audi A6 fits between the large family car class and limosine. There is lots of legroom and headroom in the cab. The A6 also has a surprisingly roomy trunk. The rear seats can be folded down to accommodate longer items and create more luggage space. The most recent A6 models have a stronger structure and are more secure overall compared to its predecessors.
The standard safety list includes six airbags, anti-lock braking system, anti-skid and stability control. The Audi A6's theft protection is comparable to that of the Audi A8.
