There’s little to no doubt that electric powertrains represent the future of transportation, and as such pretty much every major automotive manufacturer has been tossing their respective hats into the increasingly popular EV ring. And after initially entering the electric vehicle market with its e-tron SUV, Audi has now revealed another production-based proton-powered machine with its new RS e-tron GT Prototype.

Tested and developed with extensive help from Formula E Champion and Audi ambassador, Lucas di Grassi, the RS e-tron GT Prototype was designed to be a road-legal track weapon, with the all-wheel-drive EV’s dual-motor configuration allowing for output figures of 684hp and 612ft-lbs of torque, and 0-60mph times of around 3.5 seconds. Drawing from a 93.4 kWh battery pack, the prototype is also 800-volt DC fast-charging-compatible. There’s also revised bodywork with a few minor aero upgrades, plus multiple driving modes that include on-the-fly adjustments to Audi’s adaptive dampers-equipped air suspension. In addition to 19″, 20″, and 21” wheel options and steel, surface-coated steel, or carbon-ceramic disc brakes, Audi is also offering an available four-wheel steering system. The final production version of the Audi RS e-tron GT is slated for a release in the Summer of 2021.
