Audi's new e-Tron GT Quattro is their answer to the Porsche Taycan and Tesla S Plaid. In RS form (launching simultaneously) the e-Tron GT is the most powerful production Audi of any type yet.   

Looking incredibly close to the 2018 concept, the GT goes on sale shortly and is based around the same (codenamed J1) platform of Porsche’s Taycan. Jonny has just two hours to test the GT on UK soil. Milton Keynes to be precise. And it’s raining. And the car is grey. 

The e-Tron GT is built on same production line as R8 in the Audi Bollinger Hofe site in Neckarsulm. Production has a net zero carbon footprint, as uses 100% eco electricity, combined heat and power plant fired with biogas and recycles its plastic waste into fibres for 3d printing prototypes. Leather-free interior uses new material called Cascade, produced using recycled polyester fibres from plastic bottles and textiles. Dinamica replaces Alcantara, and too comprises recycled fibres. Carpet made from Econyl, a material comprising 100% recycled nylon fibres.
