2025 Audi RS e-tron GT Performance Front Three Quarters

2025 Audi RS e-tron GT Performance Is The Most Powerful Audi Ever

For the 2025 model year, a new Performance variant of the Audi RS e-tron GT has been added which generates a peak power of 680 kW (925 PS).

The 2025 Audi RS e-tron GT Performance boasts the tag of “the most powerful production car that Audi has ever built.” That really says a lot since the performance German carmaker has been making exotic cars for decades. The 2025 e-tron GT comes with a new trim – Performance. This adds to the existing lineup which contains S e-tron GT and RS e-tron GT. Note that the electric motors have modified power electronics on the front axle with a revised pulse inverter for even higher discharge currents in the Performance version. Let us glance at what’s new in the 2025 model.

2025 Audi RS e-tron GT Performance – Specs

The 2025 model gets a larger battery in comparison to the outgoing version. Now, the e-tron GT draws current from a high-voltage (HV)105 kWh battery pack (97 kWh usable). The dual-motor Quattro AWD configuration produces a jaw-dropping 680 kW (925 PS) of maximum power with the Performance trim. The S e-tron GT and RS e-tron GT generate a still impressive 500 kW (679 PS) and 630 kW (856 PS) of maximum power, respectively. Note that these include the additional 70 kW boost with the RS e-tron GT and RS e-tron GT Performance for 10 seconds.

This potent powertrain propels the gorgeous fastback from 0 to 100 kmph (62 mph) in just 2.5 seconds (Performance), 2.8 seconds (RS e-tron GT) and 3.4 seconds (S e-tron GT). To take care of the cooling characteristics, Audi has optimized the two-layer cooling plates. This results in a 12% increase in capacity for 33 cell modules. The cooling system of cells is also fresh. Regenerative braking now works at 400 kW, up from 290 kW. Using a 320 kW DC fast charger, the battery can be charged from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes. This translates to a 280 km range in 10 minutes.

The maximum rated range is an impressive 609 km (378 mi.) on WLTP. Needless to say, this is with the base S e-tron GT trim. The weight reduction of the battery and rear electric motor by 20 pounds (9.07 kg) and 22 pounds (9.97 kg), respectively, contributes to that decent range. The EV even gets a new two-chamber twin-valve air suspension to lower the car’s height by 2.1 to 3 inches in seconds.
