2021 Audi E-Tron GT to get RS hero and jet sounds

The 2021 Audi E-Tron GT will get a high-performance RS variant, the brand has confirmed. While full details have yet to be revealed, Audi's all-electric performance sedan – which shares its platform with the Porsche Taycan – is expected to offer a combined output of 434kW from its electric motors. Audi has remained tight-lipped about the RS version, but it's thought the car's performance will sit somewhere closer to that of the Porsche Taycan Turbo, which itself offers 460kW.
