Honestly, we can’t get enough of the Audi e-tron GT Concept. It’s probably the most exciting car to come from Audi since the original R8, and one that’s equally fitting of being Tony Stark’s ride. With a stunning design, an awesome interior and tons of power and performance, the e-tron GT is one badass electric car and we’re stoked about it. So we’re bringing you even more live photos of it from its 2018 LA Auto Show debut.
When we first saw the Audi e-tron GT Concept, we were genuinely shocked. We were expected a sort of Audi A7 with some e-tron badges and maybe some new trim pieces. Instead, we got this beauty. The e-tron GT is a superbly designed car, looking both futuristic and perfectly current. It’s also seriously pretty. Marc Lichte and his team have done a fantastic job giving it an emotional, sophisticated and elegant design, while making it look both sporty and electric.
If you look at it from the rear three-quarters view or from directly behind it, you can see its massive rear hips, which sort of wrap around the entire rear end. That gives its it a muscular, athletic look that you just don’t see on electric cars. Most electric cars are too boxy, too sharp, designed to look overly futuristic. Not the e-tron GT. It’s sleek and sexy and looks like a proper sports GT.
But it also has the power and performance to back up its looks. With two electric motors combining to make a whopping 590 hp, it’s said that the Audi e-tron GT can get from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds. That’s Ferrai 458 speed in a car with 248 miles of pure electric range. It also gets 800-volt charging capability more advanced battery cooling than any electric car not wearing four rings.
We absolutely cannot wait to see the Audi e-tron GT in the flesh, on the road, as a production car. More importantly, we can’t wait to drive it.
