Audi RS e-tron GT Ice Race Special Edition | Limited to 99 units

In order to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Audi Sport GmbH, the company introduced a special model of the RS e-tron GT named the "Ice Race Edition" with an eye-catching livery. 99 pieces of the unique edition will be created exclusively for European clients, showcasing the level of personalization provided by the Audi exclusive division.

production specifications With minor variations in the wrap around the grille and the wheel/tire specifications, the Audi RS e-tron GT Ice Race Edition resembles the concept car from May 2023 almost perfectly. The GP Ice Race, which takes place in Zell am See, Austria during the winter, is where the sporty EV gets its name.

Florett silver metallic serves as the exterior's foundation and is complemented with a black carbon roof, white logos, and black-finished 21-inch wheels. The foil wrap that has been added, which attempts to replicate the sheen of snow crystals and ice lakes, covers the whole bodywork with "targeted transparencies" and is the highlight. And last, ski goggles are claimed to be the inspiration for the purple highlights, which are mostly seen around the grille.

Inside, the seats now have diamond-silver leather inlays that contrast with the interior's black leather and purple stitching. The floor mats have unique RS insignia, and the steering wheel is covered in leather and Alcantara with a diamond-silver mark on top.

There are no technical differences from the Audi RS e-tron GT regular model, which has two electric motors that produce a combined 637 horsepower (475 kW/ 646 PS) and draw power from a 93.4 kWh battery pack.

The RS e-tron GT has already been given a beautiful livery by Audi. The Audi RS E-tron GT Project_513/2, which mimicked the camouflage wrapping of the earlier development prototypes, was unveiled by the business in March of last year with a restricted production of 75 vehicles for the American market.
