There’s eye-candy for car fanatics, and then there’s the Audi R8 e-Tron electric supercar, which is so sweet qualifying it as a type of sugar would be criminal. All matte black aluminum and carbon fiber body, it has few yellow highlights and even these manage to come out looking good. It looks like Batman if some spray-painted some yellow graffiti on him.

Not content with just adding another number to the line-up of electric supercars, Audi put all of 300 horsepower in this beast, and it has enough juice to run for 150 miles, on full four-wheel drive, with an engine for each wheel.

A few hundred will be built and sold to whomever can afford them, starting in 2012, but the prototype has already seen action on the Le Mans track. It was probably the good kind of action.
