FIRST DRIVE: Audi RS e-tron …

The new Audi RS e-tron GT is more than just a Porsche Taycan in a sharp suit. It shares its platform and tech with the Porsche, but Audi is pitching it as more of a cruiser than an outright sports car… just one that happens to have supercar-shaming performance. With up to 637bhp available, it’s not just the first Audi RS model to be pure electric, it’s also the most powerful to ever wear the RS badge. Top Gear Magazine editor Jack Rix, is among the first to drive one and deliver his verdict. As a bonus, we also speak to tech-reviewer Marques Brownlee about his thoughts on Audi’s new offering, and EVs in general. Marques is one of YouTube’s top tech-experts and, as we reveal in the film, soon to be a new regular contributor to Top Gear Magazine with monthly written reviews on new electrified cars.
