REPORTS OUT OF Europe last week indicated that Audi would unveil an electric version of its Audi R8 supercar alongside the hotly anticipated R8 convertible, but with very few details of the so-called R8 ?e-Version?.
Audi has since officially denied any plans for an electric R8, telling US automotive magazine Edmunds that the reports are simply ?not true.?
The reports suggested that Audi would unveil an R8 e-Version at September?s Frankfurt Motor Show alongside the petrol-powered topless R8.
While any suggestion that there was an electric R8 in the wind now firmly debunked, the R8 convertible however remains on track for its debut at Frankfurt.
