Audi electric supercar AI: Race unveils video – Futura-Sciences

The ring firm is preparing an exceptional electric sports car that will be produced in 50 copies. Here it is for the very first time in action.

To be able to discover a supercar still under development is already very rare, but taking a ride at its wheel is downright exceptional. This is the privilege of Alex Hirschi, aka "Supercar Blondie". This Australian youtubeuse who travels the world to try out Car exception has had access to a prototype of the Audi AI: Race, the future electric supercar of the German brand. A jewel of technology and design that will be manufactured only 50 copies.

Let's start with the technical sheet that already sets the scene. TheAudi AI: Race is equipped with three electric motors, one on the front axle, two at the rear, which deliver 500 kW for a torque of 830 Nm. The manufacturer promises an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in just over 2 seconds. Level speed advanced, we are told a "small" 299 km / h. The battery in the state solid 95 kWh can provide up to 500 km of autonomy (WLTP cycle) and fully recharge in 15 minutes on a 800 station volt, as the Taycan Porsche.

A motorized monohull in the cockpit

Audi thought the AI: Race for dual use on road or track. With 4.53 meters long, 2 meters wide, only 1.15 meters high and a wheelbase of 2.70 meters, it is a stubby beast thought to tease the rope stitches. Its rear diffuser can be adjusted to increase the support, as its spoiler that deploys in height and width.

But it is the cockpit that is undoubtedly the most impressive. When the door opens, we discover a monohull in central position that integrates the bucket seat, the steering wheel and the dashboard. Mounted on a motorized rail, the assembly moves laterally to meet the driver. Once it is installed, the monohull slides towards the center of the cockpit. If necessary, the configuration can evolve in left-hand drive to leave space for a passenger. Installed in a very low position, the pilot can see the road through the windshield that plunges under the front hood which is itself perforated. Oled screen transparent positioned in the axis of vision will display in real time the ideal trajectory to follow when one is on circuit. In short, a beautiful techno toy for a few privileged portfolio well stocked. The date of marketing of the Audi AI: Race is not yet known.
