From PlayStation 4 To The Race Track: The 804 HP Audi E-Tron Vision Gran Turismo Is Now A Reality
Here, let me help you make it even clearer in your mind.
That jog your memory a little bit?
Originally developed exclusively for virtual races on PlayStation 4, Audi is making the new race car reality in conjunction with Formula E. Starting with the race in Rome on Saturday, April 14, a REAL LIFE Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo will be deployed as a race taxi during the event.
Check out this hype video and tell me you don’t want to drive this car IRL right now.
The Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo has permanent all-wheel drive as well, the fully electric e-tron quattro all-wheel drive with variable power distribution. Three electric motors, each with output of 200 kW, propel the concept car. Two electric motors drive the rear axle and the third one the front axle, using individual components from the future Audi e-tron. System output is 600 kW (815 hp). With a curb weight of 1,450 kilograms the electric race car has a power to weight ratio of 1.78 kilograms per horsepower with ideal 50:50 percent weight distribution between the front and the rear axle. The Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 2.5 seconds.
I may just go buy a PlayStation 4 just so I can at least drive it on my television.
Oh, it’s real all right, and it’s spectacular.
