Audi RS E-Tron GT hides big power under its camouflage

With 590 horsepower and 612 pound-feet of torque, it'll shuffle.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

The company's upcoming production electric performance car will utilize two electric motors, one at each axle, to produce a net 590 horsepower and 612 pound-feet of torque.

An overboost function will provide a temporary surge to 646 hp and its top speed is limited to 155 mph.

That pair of electric motors will provide enough motive force to shoot this bad boy to 62 mph in less than 3.5 seconds, although the automaker declined to produce a specific figure.

We can draw a bit of context from the car with which the RS E-Tron GT shares a platform: The Porsche Taycan.

The Audi's figures place it between the 429-to-482-horsepower Taycan 4S and the 616-horsepower Taycan Turbo.

Considering the Taycan Turbo needs just 3 seconds to hit 60 mph, the RS E-Tron GT's official numbers shouldn't be too far behind that figure, but confirmation is likely a ways away still.

As for when we should expect to see the real thing, it shouldn't be long.
