In late 2020, Audi introduced the world to its RS e-tron GT prototype — a high-performance fully-electric four-door that was objectively worthy of wearing the Four Rings brand’s coveted RS badge. Soon after, this fully-electric sports car entered production, going entirely unchanged from the conceptual prototype, save for a unique TRON-esque black camo livery that was juxtaposed via bright red accents. And after more recently unveiling an e-tron GT camouflage indoor car cover bearing the same livery, the Ingolstadt outfit has now announced the release of a limited edition run of Audi RS e-tron GT project_513/2 cars wearing this same wrap.

Born out of a collaboration between Audi of America and Audi exclusive, this special edition e-tron model represents the first-ever Audi to feature a camouflage graphics-skinned and wrapped exterior straight from the factory. Taking its name from the 2020 prototype project’s internal code name, the car is outfitted with a host of unique interior and exterior details and design elements. The RS e-tron GT project_513/2 wears model-exclusive blacked-out 21“ five-double-spoke concave aero wheels fitted with red-finished ceramic brakes, plus a rear quarter glass panel etched with the “project_513/2” logo, and a roof, mirror caps, and exterior door inlays that are all crafted from exposed carbon fiber. Complemented via a red Four Rings logo and red-finished aero elements, the front-end of the special edition also boasts HD Matrix-design LED headlights complete with Audi’s laser light.

The black and red color scheme is also present in the vehicle’s cabin, which comes loaded with red-painted vents, red floor matts, a Dinamica headliner, a dash with carbon fiber inlays with camo graphics, RS-logoed illuminated door sills with carbon fiber inlays, and massaging and ventilated 18-way-adjustable sport seats trimmed in Nappa leather and decorated in honeycomb stitching. The regular production model’s 10.1” Audi MMI infotainment screen also gains a model-exclusive “project_513/2” logo in its bottom corner. Capable of doing 0-60mph in just 3.1 seconds, the vehicle is also equipped with rear-wheel steering and Audi’s Power steering plus, both as standard. Typically, the paint jobs on one-off concepts and prototypes are designed to be eye-catching rather than to appeal to a mass market, making it particularly interesting that  Audi is actually selling this high-performance fully-electric special edition as a limited production vehicle — an area made all the stranger by the fact the livery is of the camo variety and was designed to hide the car’s lines.
