To love concept cars is to accept that the majority of the vision you’ve fell in love with are likely to be compromised- often hugely- if/ when the design induces it to creation. That said, Audi has a record of retaining a considerable percentage of their register vehicle DNA, something that Audi head of design Marc Lichte has delivered again with the 2021 Audi e-tron GT, a vehicle firstly exposed back in 2018 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Lichte described the original saying of the Audi e-tron GT as” The most beautiful car I’ve ever outline .” Now two years later, that self-confident investigate of figure has arrived as an all-electric Gran Turismo with many of the details that constituted the original demo vehicle a buzzworthy layout primarily unscathed from the editing process: the same chiseled low-pitched posture with a honeycomb grill agape in front, complemented with short-lived overhangs and a long wheelbase, slithering elegantly down to a tapered rear expressive of Audi’s TT and R8 models.
Good design to be carried out when a product is aesthetic and functional at the same time, when it becomes part of a seamless overall experience. The basis for esthetics lies in the proportions: short overhangs and a long wheelbase, together with a skinny cabin on a strong body. All this is combined by the e-tron GT.

The electric sedan’s vigorous aerodynamic styling isn’t all bark and no bite. In fact, motorists might have to bite their lips when triggering all 582 horsepower powered by an electric motor on each axle. The 2021 e-tron GT is good for a 0-60 in 3.5 seconds; a high performance 637 horsepower RS e-tron GT variant arriving at the end of 2021 promises to propel operators even faster, with accelerations under 3.5 seconds.
To improve performance and efficiency, Audi gave the e-tron GT with a lightweight, high-strength, five-layer carbon fiber reinforced plastic roof- a first for an Audi.
Only time will tell if Audi’s halo model and its mix of ability, action and range will electrify customers within a swiftly populace plain of post-petrol models emulating for moves seeking the next greatest thing on four wheels. The Audi e-tron GT may be the perfect concoction, poising all the attributes into the sum of something special. Or as the automakers call, a “sporty and technological spearhead of its electric offensive”.
