ⓘ Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo

The Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo is a two-seater concept car developed by Audi Sport GmbH and was manufactured in Germany. In April 2018, the car was unveiled at the Audi Competence Center Motorsport at Neuburg an der Donau, Bavaria, Germany, four days after two teaser trailers were released on YouTube. The Vision Gran Turismo is the third car in the "e-tron" electric lineup, after the Audi e-tron SUV and the Audi e-tron Sportback. The car was fully constructed in a span of 11 months.

The car was deemed the first official fully functioning concept car that can drive on the roads. This is also the first fully functioning concept car which matches the virtual and "on-paper" specifications with the real specifications.

2. Media

The Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo is available for virtual driving in the Polyphony Digital racing game, Gran Turismo Sport. Two versions exist in the game, with one of them which does not exist in the real world scrapping the "e-tron" moniker and opting for a 3.4-liter turbocharged V6 engine with hybrid assistance from a single electric motor.
