VIDEO: Take a POV Drive of the Audi RS e-tron GT

We’ve all seen countless photos, reviews, and videos of the Audi RS e-tron GT. It’s one of the most exciting cars to ever come from the Audi brand and it’s the best looking EV on sale. However, it’s also shockingly expensive, which means most normal fans can’t afford it. If you’re one of them but you still want to check out what it’s like to drive the RS e-tron GT, watch this new video from Tedward.

 

In this new video, Tedward does a POV drive review, as per usual, of the Audi RS e-tron GT. Thanks to its 637 horsepower maximum — which is only available for 2.5 seconds — the RS e-tron GT is able to get from 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds. So just as its max power runs out out, the electric Audi it’s crossing the 60 mph threshold.

It’s not all straight line speed, though. Audi has done impressive work to its ride, handling, and even its fun factor. Despite weighing just over 5,000 lbs, the Audi RS e-tron GT is surprisingly good fun on the road. According to Tedward, one of the best aspects of the car’s drive is one that will fill you with confidence when driving hard — brakes.

 

Too many electric vehicles have gobstopping power but not all of them have the brakes to match (I’m looking at you, Tesla Model S Plaid). That’s not the case with the Audi RS e-tron GT. Instead, its brakes feel natural and stop the car beautifully.

He also claims that the Audi RS e-tron GT is more fun than you might think. Sure, it’s crazy heavy and it’s all-electric but it’s surprisingly balanced and sharp. Not to mention bonkers fast, capable of roasting most supercars without any fuss or drama — just instant, violent thrust.

Combine all of that with its stunning good looks and the Audi RS e-tron GT becomes one of the very most attractive EV packages on sale. It’s an admittedly quite expensive EV package but one that’s likely worth the money if you can afford it.
