Audi has kicked its electric offense into hyperdrive – with the new Audi e-tron S and the new Audi e-tron S Sportback. Both S models with fully electric drive use three electric motors, two of which operate on the rear axle. Their intelligent drive control raises vehicle safety, and dynamic handling, to a new level. In addition to the electric all-wheel drive, the vehicles are equipped with electric torque vectoring with active and fully variable torque distribution on the rear axle.
The new MC20 is developed entirely by Maserati, including its turbocharged V6 engine. The engine produces 630 horsepower, 730 NM of torque and can hit a top speed of 202 miles an hour and go from 0 to 100kmph in under 2.3 seconds. The MC20 boasts a best-in-class power-to-weight ratio of 2.3 kilograms per horsepower. The supercar’s monocoque weighs a mere 100 kilograms and the total car tips the scale at around 1,500 kilograms thanks in part to a lightweight monocoque construction.
