Audi RS E-Tron GT Heads To The Autobahn For A Top Speed Run



With Audi recently lifting the embargo for the E-Tron GT first drive videos, we laid eyes on a clip that shows it travel at full pace on a no-speed-limit section of the German Autobahn.

This isn’t the regular E-Tron GT, but the RS model, which may not pose a threat to the fastest electric sedans out there, like its cousin, the Porsche Taycan Turbo S, or the Tesla Model S Plaid, but it nevertheless does have a lot of power and supercar-rivaling performance.

In fact, with the overboost function enabled, it needs only 3.3 seconds for the 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint, according to the official spec sheet, and two tenths of a second less to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) from a standstill.

Top speed is limited to 250 km/h (155 mph), and the dual-motor set-up, powered by an 86 kWh battery in both versions of the car, generates up to 646 PS (637 HP / 475 kW) and 830 Nm (612 lb-ft) of torque in the RS E-Tron GT. The lesser model has up to 529 PS (522 HP / 395 kW) and 640 Nm (472 lb-ft), takes 3.9 seconds to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) and maxes out at 245 km/h (152 mph).

So, can the RS E-Tron GT come close to the official performance numbers in the real world? Well, actually it’s quicker, with the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) recorded on a third-party device taking 3.2 seconds, despite the car riding on winter tires, while the 100 to 200 km/h (62-124 mph) acceleration was completed in 7.1 seconds.
