Check Out the Audi R8 e-tron’s Cool, Digital Rearview “Mirror”

Lacking rearward visibility, Audi’s R8 e-tron coupe has little use for a traditional rearview mirror. Rather than stick drivers with the Lamborghini Countach experience—”Look behind me?

Video: Audi R8 V10 5.2 FSI

Audi has to advertise for these things?
