The lineup kicks off with the Premium Plus, which starts at $99,900. It features standard 20-inch two-tone titanium wheels, Matrix LED headlights, Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, electrically adjustable and heated front sports seats, and front cross traffic assist.
The mid-range Prestige is listed from $107,100, adding active lane assist plus, emergency assist and traffic jam assist. It also brings heated rear seats, LED multi-color ambient lighting, head-up display and premium sound system from B&O.
Finally, the Audi Sport model, better known as the RS E-Tron GT, starts at $139,900 and is offered with different 20-inch wheels, carbon fiber roof and exterior optics, surface coated disc brakes with orange calipers and e-torque vectoring plus. All prices exclude the $1,045 destination charge.
Having chosen your preferred model, the range-topper in our case, you will have to go through the exterior colors and wheel choices, before moving on to the cabin. And it is here where you can go crazy on the options, as adding everything available will bump the price up to $165,195. That is a lot of money for any car, but it does cost less than the E-Tron GT’s brother from another mother, the Porsche Taycan, which is available from $185,000 in the range-topping Turbo S guise.
In terms of power, you are looking at up to 637 HP and 612 lb-ft (830 Nm) of torque with overboost in the RS model, which does not step on the Taycan Turbo S’ toes that’s offered with up to 750 HP. The 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprint takes 3.1 seconds in the Audi, half a second slower than the Porsche.
