Audi e-tron GT experience - Audi RS e-tron GT Aerodynamics & Aeroacoustics

Aerodynamics isn’t just the means to an end in the e-tron GT but rather an important design feature. The design of the e-tron GT with its drag coefficient of 0.24 looks as if it was shaped by the wind – and it is. It was developed in close collaboration between designers and aerodynamics engineers. The air inlets in the lower section in the front play an important role. The upright air curtains on the outside guide the air into the wheel arches in such a way that it flows close to the wheel and then along the side. Most rims feature light blades that are just 2 to 3 millimeters (0.08–0.12 in) thick. This covering further increases the aerodynamic efficiency.
