The Audi RS e-tron GT is the first all-electric RS model and gives us a glimpse into the future of go-faster Ingolstadt products. Audi uses the same dual electric motor as the Porsche Taycan, but the power is down to 590 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque. That's not bad, considering the RS can still sprint to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds. Audi kept it old-school on the inside, staying away from the haptic feedback buttons found on some of its other new models. You get a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.1-inch touchscreen center display that can run Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other interior niceties include power-adjustable front seats, heated front/rear seats, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering column, keyless entry with push-button start, three-zone climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.
There is one no-cost option, and it lets you swap the standard carbon-fiber roof for a panoramic glass roof.
The Full Leather Interior Package retails for $5,350 and adds a full leather interior, fine Nappa leather perforated seats with RS honeycomb stitching, ventilated front seats with a massage function, RS 18-way power-adjustable front sport seats, an RS three-spoke perforated flat-bottom steering wheel, and Dinamica headliner. A Ceramic brake package adds carbon ceramic brakes and Anthracite-colored brake calipers housed within 21-inch five-double-spoke concave module-design wheels. The Carbon Performance Package adds illuminated carbon fiber door sill inlays, black badges and Audi rings, rear-wheel steering, and HD Matrix LED headlights with Audi laser light and animation.
Only available for the 2022 model, the Year One Package cost $20,350 but included the aforementioned packaged and more like dynamic power steering and carbon-ceramic brakes with red calipers.
