We'd bet that many people will buy the Audi e-tron GT for its appearance alone, regardless of its abilities as an EV. Whereas Audi's trio of A4/A6/A8 sedans seems determined to fade into the background, there's no chance of that happening with the e-tron GT. It sits low to the ground and has a wide stance. The inverted Singleframe grille is flanked by stylish Matrix-design LED headlights, and 20-inch bi-color titanium wheels are standard. The sloping roofline flows elegantly down into the rear section. At the back, the taillight clusters are linked by a strip that runs across the width of the body. A fixed glass roof is standard on both trims. The design is color-sensitive, however, and the grey trim around the grille and on the side sills doesn't gel cohesively with every color option. Still, this is one of the prettier four-door coupes on the road today.
The e-tron GT is lower and wider than the Audi A7, a car that already has a considerable footprint. Official dimensions for this new EV are a length of 196.4 inches, a 114.2-inch wheelbase, and a width of either 77.3 inches without the mirrors or 84.9 inches including them. The height is just 55 inches. Like many EVs, the e-tron GT is heavy. This is reflected in the curb weight of 5,060 pounds. By comparison, the base Porsche Taycan weighs nearly 500 lbs less due to its single-motor configuration.

The Audi e-tron GT can be ordered in one of nine colors, but only Ibis White doesn't cost anything extra. Every other color carries a $595 price tag. These premium options include Daytona Gray pearl and several metallics: Ascari Blue, Florett Silver, Kemora Gray, Mythos Black, Suzuka Gray, Tactical Green, and Tango Red. Audi also offers the option of an exclusive paint color for $3,900. We're not so sure about the gray grille surround and the same gray for the side skirts. However, the gray can be replaced with Black Optic trim (including the mirrors) which looks better to our eyes. There is also the option of the grille being finished in the same color as the body. Of course, these things are highly subjective but the GT looks appealingly sinister in Daytona Gray with the body-color grille and the Black Optic trim.
