Tony Stark’s latest ride is edging closer to production. First revealed in concept form at the LA Auto Show in 2018, the Audi E-Tron GT has been papped undergoing cold weather testing, and not even heavy camouflage can hide its curvy flanks.

The show car was certainly a looker, and the good news is the production version should be just as handsome. The E-Tron SUV, remember, wasn’t a big styling departure from the E-Tron Quattro concept that preceded it.

The concept version was good for 582bhp via a dual-motor setup powered by a 90kWh battery pack, making for a 0-62mph time of just 3.5 seconds. We’re expecting that level of performance to be replicated by at least one derivative of the E-Tron.

We certainly know the E-Tron’s guts have the capability. Under the skin the Sportback will be closely related to Porsche’s Taycan, which is available in 571bhp, 671bhp and guises 751bhp badged 4S, Turbo and Turbo S respectively. The biggest available battery will almost certainly be the same 93.5kWh pack that’s fitted as standard on the Turbo and Turbo S.

The expectation is for the E-Tron GT to make its full debut at the LA Auto Show this November, before being launched early 2021.

I guess it will be quite interesting to see how Audi market this car and see what they can do to get it out there and market it well….I wonder how many quirks and features it will have….

Was about to say the same thing. That’s some serious S2000 up-front.
