Judging by what it’s like to ride in, the Audi E-Tron GT will not leave you wanting for performance. The close-to-production concept E-Tron GT develops 582bhp from its twin-motor setup, so that’s what we’re expecting from the car.

You’d think this wouldn’t leave a whole lot of room for a more potent version, yet Audi has already confirmed it’ll build an ‘RS E-Tron GT’. And unlike other RS models, there’ll be no waiting around for it to be launched – it’ll go on sale at the mid-point of 2020.

It’ll receive a visual makeover to ensure it stands out alongside the regular GT, which will likely involve flared wheel arches, a more aggressive grille treatment, and additional vents to help keep the electric powertrain cool.

Speaking of, we suspect the first-ever plug-in RS will use either the Turbo or Turbo S-spec running gear of its Porsche Taycan platform-mate. So, it should be good for 671bhp or 751bhp.

Should Audi go for option B, the RS E-Tron GT will be good for a 0-62mph time of 2.8 seconds. To make the most of the extra power, there’ll be a unique tune for the chassis, and also a distinct noise piped in through its speakers.

So, what high-powered, ~£100k EV would it be for you – the RS E-Tron GT, or a Porsche Taycan Turbo S?
