Who doesn't want to look like they're driving a sci-fi film creation?
When the Audi e-tron GT debuted as a concept at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, it was wrapped in a distinctive black and orange camouflage livery designed to look like a circuit board while masking the final production car's design details. Wrapping prototypes in camouflage is common in the auto industry, as we've seen time and time again in spy shots, but this camo left a mark on the industry who were enamored by its appearance.
Nearly three years after the concept debuted, the Audi e-tron GT is arriving in showrooms. As a homage to the original concept that inspired it, Audi is offering a unique car cover that mimics the look of the original concept's camouflage.
Designed to fit the e-tron GT and RS e-tron GT, the indoor cover protects the electric sedan from dust and dirt, while "carefully placed piping" ensures the e-tron GT's sleek curves and lines are still visible through the cover.
Audi says the design "offers owners a sporty, progressive, and emotional experience." The e-tron GT camouflage cover is sold as an Audi Genuine Accessory and can be purchased from Audi's online store or at authorized Audi dealerships. It's certainly a stylish way to display your e-tron GT when it isn't being used, but with an MSRP of $785, it isn't cheap. Then again, this won't be a problem if you can afford the e-tron GT.
In the US, the Audi e-tron GT starts at $99,900. The standard version utilizes two electric motors producing a combined 469 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque, although a Boost Mode temporarily increases the output to 522 hp and 472 lb-ft of torque. The range-topping RS e-tron GT, on the other hand, will set you back $139,900 plus a $1,045 destination charge and has an increased output of 590 hp and 612 lb-ft. With Boost Mode activated, the out increases to 637 hp, enabling the RS e-tron GT to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds.
