The concept is accompanied by an Audi Sport Quattro with an electric powertrain. While technical details are not yet available, the teaser video showcases the vehicles' performance.
The RS E-Tron GT Ice Race Concept draws inspiration from the standard Audi RS E-Tron GT, known as the brand's fastest and most powerful production car. Although specific powertrain information is undisclosed, the RS E-Tron GT model delivers impressive performance, with up to 515 bhp (or 637 bhp in boost mode) and a 0 to 100 kmph acceleration time of 3.1 seconds. The concept is based on the same platform as the Porsche Taycan.
Equipped with a 93.4 kWh battery, the RS E-Tron GT offers an estimated range of up to 373 km, making it a compelling option for electric sports car enthusiasts. It also supports fast charging at up to 270 kW DC, allowing the battery to be charged from 5% to 80% in approximately 22.5 minutes.
In terms of design, the RS E-Tron GT Ice Race Concept and Sport Quattro feature matching colour schemes in grey, purple, and white. Although the teaser video does not reveal any significant exterior changes, the unique colours enhance their visual appeal. Inside the concept, white upholstery and black trim create a sporty atmosphere, complemented by the badge from Audi's exclusive personalization division.
The teaser video shows the RS E-Tron GT and Sport Quattro pulling a skier on a snowy mountain, showcasing their potential on icy surfaces. Despite the concept's name, the video does not explicitly show the vehicles driving on ice, adding to the intrigue surrounding their performance. As enthusiasts eagerly await the full reveal, scheduled for May 28, Audi will provide further details on this concept and its performance on frozen terrain.
