Audi’s updated electric performance car has some staggering figures.

Recent work on the bold-looking e-tron GT sedan has boosted power across the board, and the RS Performance variant is now the brand’s most powerful car to date.

The technical tweaks mean the e-tron GT RS Performance now makes 680kW or 912 horses. Audi hasn’t quoted torque figures but expect them to be mammoth.

The e-tron GT RS Performance’s dual electric motors produce more oomph than the brand’s legendary twin-turbo V8 and V10 motors found in cars past and present.

All that performance means the top-tier EV can sprint from 0-100km/h in a supercar slaying 2.5 seconds.

On top of this Audi has upped the charging rate for the e-tron GT. It can now peak at 320kW, up from 270kW in the first edition. 

Audi said the car can now maintain a charging speed of more than 280kW up to about 70 per cent of charge, which will quicken the time it takes to top up further.

The German brand has also managed to make the car slightly lighter and increase its energy density.

The regenerative braking has been beefed up too, and can now feed more energy back into the battery.

New air suspension should improve the car’s ride by ironing out bumps and road imperfections better and reducing any lean through corners.

Audi has capped off the update with a raft of cosmetic changes.

This includes a new front grille, headlight design and fresh alloy wheels.

Inside the changes are highlighted by redesigned sports seats, new wooden inlays and steering wheel.

The carpeting and floor mats are made of 100 per cent recycled nylon fibres and there is extensive use of synthetic suede and leather throughout.

Audi has also added new readout and graphics to the digital driver display. The panoramic sunroof can go from opaque to clear at the touch of a button thanks to  a polymer-dispersed liquid crystal technology.
