The Audi R8 e-tron will be heading to the 2012 Paris Motor Show, bringing with it the bragging rights of being the fastest production EV around the famous Nürburgring.

And while specifications of the electric sports car won’t debut until the big reveal in Paris, what we now know is that the instrumentation in the R8 will be all digital. In fact, even the center console control is an Apple iPad.

So that means those driving around the R8 will indeed plunge themselves into a futuristic experience. Gone is a traditional tachometer and in goes a power meter featuring a 0 to 100 scale. Joining the power meter is a digital speedometer and battery charge state display.

As for the center iPad, occupants will be able to adjust radio volume or air conditioning ventilation with simple touchscreen commands. And of course, there’s the digital rear-view mirror we previewed before.

Watch a video of the Audi R8 e-tron below.
