Audi has always been genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist Tony Stark’s brand of choice when it comes to driving on the ground. Used to reaching supersonic speed in his iron man suits, speed would have been number one priority when he went out car shopping. In the first iron man movie, we see the man commanding an R8 sports car, which seems to be his daily ride. In the second movie, we see him upgrade to the Spyder model, which delivers an orgasmic V10 engine note straight to the ears with no roof disturbing the sound waves. In the third part of the franchise, the superhero goes all-electric, with the R8 E-Tron sportscar. This trend continues through all movies of the franchise, with the last movie, the Avengers Endgame, starring the new Audi E-Tron GT concept.
As the name suggests, this Audi is all about grand touring. Carrying a Sportback design, this car comes with 4-doors in case there are three other superheroes you want to carpool with. With electric motors churning out 590 horses, this all-electric GT delivers 900 Nm of twist instantly to all four wheels, accelerating the car from a standstill to 100 kmph in a mere 3.5 seconds. Along with all this power, you get a battery pack large enough to push the car for 400 kilometres. That is 60 km more than what their E-Tron SUV offers. When the juice in the batteries is over, you can simply plug it in the wall overnight and have it ready the next morning. However, if you happen to be in a hurry, you could call a friend like Thor and charge the car instantly with a strike of lightning.
Confirmed for production for us mere human beings, the E-Tron GT will make its debut two years from now, in 2021. While there are no details on prices yet, expect it to cost around £100,000 in the UK. Will it make its way to India? Well, with no infrastructure to support such cars available in our country yet, it is very unlikely to be offered here. That said, there are some people with deep pockets in our country, who could have it privately imported to our country, just like the many Tesla’s we see on our roads. While we wait to find out to see a superhero car on our streets, do look at it in your screens with the gallery posted below.
