4.99 meters long and with a maximum power close to 650 hp, the Audi e-tron GT can count on a refined cooling system that guarantees both repeatability of performance and ultra-fast charging . Then there are solutions such as the adjustable suspension with adaptive triple chamber air suspension, carbon ceramic brakes and integral steering. The latter for the first time dedicated to a model of the e-tron range. Audi Italia has dedicated an exclusive online booking process to the RS e-tron GT, after which the first deliveries are scheduled for the second quarter of 2021.
It’s time to step into the future.
