At CES Asia, They have just unveiled the latest in its series of “piloted driving” concepts that could perhaps be its best yet – pushing us closer to having the driver to being just a passenger.

The Audi’s R8 E-Tron was showed off in Geneva and this time it returns as a part of the latest Piloted Driving demonstrator. This R8 features an electric powertrain that pushes 456 horsepower, 679 pound-feet of torque with a 0-62 time of 3.9 seconds. But the amazing part is that that driver doesn’t need to do anything but sit and enjoy the ride.

This experience is made possible by installing a multitude of sensors all over the vehicle that is managed entirely by the driver assistance control computer.
