Audi E-tron GT RS to Get 700 hp, Three Motors: Report

700 hp for electric drift car RS Audi

  • Triple motors, big power for Taycan platform-mate

  • Faster EV Audi expected to debut next spring


We already know that Audi is planning an RS version of the e-tron GT, the four-door coupe electric grand tourer that’s all set to get the go-faster Audi treatment, but now we might know a little bit more about what Audi has in store for performance for the car.

How about 700 hp and a trio of electric motors? Sounds pretty good to us, and that’s exactly what Auto Express is reporting, calling it confirmed, though not providing a source for the news.

The Audi e-tron GT is based on the same platform as the Porsche Taycan EV, and that means plenty of performance headroom. The Taycan is one of the quickest and fastest vehicles around, electric or not, and that capability could easily translate to the e-tron GT RS.

According to the report, Audi said that the three-motor setup will give the RS “the capacity to perform controlled drifts,” which sounds like fun to us. The Taycan also has the capability to perform some impressive slides, even without the third motor, so we don’t doubt this claim. If the car makes around 700 hp, 0-100 km/h should happen in right around three-seconds flat. The 95 kWh expected battery should allow for a range of around 400km.

The e-tron GT RS will also get a special body kit to set it apart from standard cars, wider arches to hold larger tires, and a diffuser to provide rear downforce, though likely all of those would come at the expense of some ultimate range distance.
