Straight at the launch of the brand new Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo, I had the opportunity to not only join the event but to be the first person to take it for a test drive! The e-tron Vision GT has been introduced today for Gran Turismo on PlayStation but Audi Sport have backed it up with a fully drivable version of the game's Pure EV racecar.
With 3 electric motors that create 600Kw of power, the car will do 0-100km/h in 2.5 seconds thanks to Quattro four wheel drive, and continue that sprint to set a 0-200km/h time of just 7.8 seconds. With a distinct livery and styling cues that come from the Audi 90 Quattro IMSA-GTO race car, it's a sharp sight to behold.
The existence of a fully drivable car straight from the launch, with the opportunity for me to drive it on the very day the car goes into the game has been truly special. I cannot thank those at Audi Sport enough for the chance to do so and to be able to share this with you. Why not also have a go with it in Gran Turismo, I'd be interested to hear what it's like!
Thanks for watching, Tim
