What does RS GT mean?

  • RS (RennSport): This German term translates to “Racing Sport”, indicating that the vehicle is a high-performance version with a sportier design and enhanced power. In Audi’s lineup, RS models are the most performance-oriented, often featuring upgraded power-terrain, aggressive styling, and advanced engineering for a more thrilling driving experience.
  • GT (Grand Tourer): A Grand Tourer is designed for high-speed, long-distance driving with a focus on comfort and luxury. GT cars typically offer a spacious interior, a smooth ride, and high-end amenities, making them ideal for extended journeys and daily commuting.

In summary, “RS GT” in the Audi RS e-tron GT signifies a vehicle that delivers racing-level performance and handling while providing the comfort and luxury expected of a Grand Tourer. This balance of speed and refinement, combined with the benefits of an all-electric drivetrain, makes the Audi RS e-tron GT a unique and appealing choice for those seeking a high-performance electric vehicle.

The Audi RS e-tron GT is definitely at the top of my list of electric cars I’ve driven. Having the chance to experience the e-tron for the weekend, there were certain things I came to love about my time with the car. As anyone who has driven an Audi will know, comfort is always front of mind. While that was certainly the case with this, it felt understated, yet luxury. With the electric motor, and interior sound deadening, it was an absolute pleasure to drive.

Dual-motor drive system

The Audi RS e-tron GT’s dual-motor all-wheel-drive system delivers exceptional performance and traction. This setup employs two electric motors—one for the front axle and one for the rear—to enable precise power distribution and rapid acceleration. With instant torque and impressive stability, the RS e-tron GT handles corners and high-speed driving with ease, providing a balanced and dynamic experience. The all-wheel-drive system enhances control in various conditions, whether you’re maneuvering through city streets or taking on challenging roads.

Advanced Matrix headlights

The Matrix LED headlights in the Audi RS e-tron GT offer unparalleled illumination and safety. These lights automatically adjust to avoid blinding other drivers while maintaining maximum visibility for you. With built-in maneuvering lights for reverse driving, all-weather modes to cut through fog, and dynamic turn signals, these headlights are as functional as they are stylish. The adaptive technology allows you to drive confidently in any condition, knowing you’re supported by state-of-the-art lighting that keeps you and others on the road safe.
