#1: Three subtly distinctive designs

The new Audi e-tron GT line-up includes three very different models: each of which boasts its own unique look to reflect its position in the range. 

The range-starting Audi S e-tron GT simply exudes elegant sportiness: from its embossed three-dimensional e-tron interpretation of Audi’s iconic Singleframe grille – which is visually deeper and sportier than that of its predecessor – through the dynamically shaped air curtains that guide air over the car’s body, all the way to the elegantly designed rear diffuser with its bold vertical fins.

The Audi RS e-tron GT boasts an even more radical look. The inverted Singleframe grille features an Audi RS-style 3D-honeycomb structure to denote this model’s enhanced performance, while vertical red reflectors between the aero channels of the rear diffuser enhance its race-bred character.

Then there’s the range-topping Audi RS e-tron GT performance. As the first fully all-electric Audi RS performance model, it features even more unique design elements, with a first-for-Audi optional matte darkened carbon roof and optional carbon camouflage elements for the bumper, door trim, diffuser and side mirrors.

#2 Exclusive paints and alloys

Across the new Audi e-tron GT range, you can pick from nine paint colours, with an exclusive Nimbus Grey for the Audi RS e-tron GT and Audi RS e-tron GT performance, and an even more exclusive Bedford Green that’s unique for the Audi RS e-tron GT performance. The Audi RS e-tron GT and the Audi RS e-tron GT performance also offer the option of new forged and milled six-twin-spoke alloy wheels which evoke the AVUS wheels of the 1991 Audi Avus quattro study.

#3 Interior style that’s more sustainable

The interior of the new Audi e-tron GT has been enhanced with even wider use of Cascade fabric, suede-like Dinamica micro-fibre and Econyl – all of which use reclaimed and recycled materials, while still offering an ultra-premium look and feel.

#4 Innovative new inlay materials

You can choose from an even broader swathe of trim materials on the new Audi e-tron GT – including a range of new wooden inlays in natural anthracite birch, and an exclusive matte carbon camouflage inlay for the Audi RS e-tron GT performance to match its exterior detailing.

The interior of the Audi RS e-tron GT and the Audi RS e-tron GT performance also features a new material that’s being used for the first time: Vanadium. It boasts an anthracite-effect finish that changes character depending on how its lit.

#5 New seats with stylish contrast stitching

The new Audi e-tron GT’s seats have been redesigned with a new funnel aperture design that is more dynamic, featuring an integrated inlay with an illuminated logo, and the Audi S e-tron GT now includes sports seats plus with 14-way adjustment as standard – available in a leather-free design package with contrast orange stitching. 

On top Vorsprung trims the new Audi RS e-tron GT comes with massage seats to make long journeys even more relaxing, while the seats in the Audi RS e-tron GT performance include the option of an exclusive new Serpentine Green contrast stitching to further complement the unique Bedford Green exterior paint.

#6 A race-inspired steering wheel 

The steering wheel of the new Audi e-tron GT has been flattened at the top and bottom for a more sporty look, with two red control satellites on the Audi RS e-tron GT and Audi RS e-tron GT performance that give easier access to performance-focused functions – including the ‘boost’ function which gives a 95PS boost of performance, with a digital countdown to show you how much power is left

#7 Exclusive digital dials for the Audi RS e-tron GT performance

In another nod to Audi’s unique RS performance heritage, the virtual cockpit of the new Audi RS e-tron GT performance boasts a unique white-backed digital display option for the power display and speedometer, which pays tribute to the white analogue dials of the 1994 Audi RS2 Avant.

#8 A panoramic sunroof that’s even smarter

Last, but by no means least, the new Audi e-tron GT’s optional panoramic glass roof with switchable transparency minimises direct sunlight and uses polymer-dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC) technology to turn opaque at the touch of a button – with matte graphics reminiscent of Audi’s iconic sporty honeycomb graphic.

So, those are all the ways in which the new Audi e-tron GT has been designed to keep turning heads and getting people talking. Maybe it’s time for you to take a look yourself.
