The Audi RS E - Tron GT arrives!


Recommended Posts

https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/audi/102970/new-2021-audi-e-tron-gt-arrives-rival-tesla-model-s

 

The car was mentioned over 3 years ago. Not bad for a second attempt after the SUV. Shorter range than Tesla (280 miles) and pricier at £79-£130,000. 

 

Similar in price to the Taycan. I think it looks good Interior and exterior although the centre console could have been cleaner. Audi still believe in buttons. Shocker.

 

Not everyones cuppa but still a cool car.

Don't know why anyone hasn't posted yet their feedback but there is a lot to like about the design. Good balance of not being too understated and not too try hard  (stinger, BMW 8etc) like the rims on the grey car must say. 

 

Side note I saw a black RSQ8 today and it does actually look better then the Urus.

Tbh I haven’t posted because it’s electric so has zero desire for me, and the Taycan exists which is a more desirable car. Same way I’d always want the sportier/premium version of any VAG product rather than the cheaper one. 
 

That said, it’s not horrendous to look at. Except for both wheel options :headhurt:

I cant blame people tbh. Electric and VAG on a Nissan Z forum its not high on the list of talkaboutism. :lol:

As cool as electric can get tbh. Something inherently clashy with being environmentally friendly and a car guy. Similar to how vegan cooking isnt really viewed in a bit of a tongue in cheek way

Mehhh it's a modern German car with 101 sensors which will blow apart if, god forbid, you fart too strong. 

 

Expensive and without the amazing tax benefits scheme for electric cars, it's just not worth being curious about. I'm sure in 10 years time when depreciation has hit it and superchargers are the norm, then I'll be interested.

 

It does look amazing and it's nice to see another car in the luxury electric bracket. Tip my hat to the engineers behind the scenes - hopefully this car and its tech filters down the the everyday car I'll be using in 10/15 years.

Yeah who needs sensors to tell you when things are wrong, much better to bury your head in the sand and not think about it :doh: 

 

In fairness, for your average vehicle owner, a barrage of sensors to montior literally everything along with a plethora of brightly lit lights right in front their faces, not to mention the very specific and detailed warning messages that pop in front of their [insert whatever the "cool" media is this week] display is often seemingly insufficient notification that an issue may be present.

Much better to let the car spontaneously erupt in a dramatic fireball of death than to "warn" of said impending fireball of death.

 

Especially when it's just a rolling laptop. ;)
