Watch: The Making of the Audi R8 Share Comments Audi announced earlier this month that it will be adding the e-tron GT to the line that builds the R8. That’s all well and good, but included in that announcement was the admission that the two lines wouldn’t quite work the same. That’s because the R8 is so handmade that it wouldn’t really work for e-tron production. Watching this video, shared by Audi, it’s easy to see why that might be. Frankly, you could never spend this much time on anything that isn’t a supercar. The video is 14 minutes of pure bliss. Let the stresses of the week wash off of you as a bunch of aluminum and carbon infoe together to make one of the finest supercars ever to infoe out Germany.
