Special Edition 2023 Audi RS e-tron GT Cosplays as a Camo’d Prototype

  • The 2023 Audi RS e-tron GT project_513/2 is a limited production version of Audi’s 637-hp EV sedan, with only 75 units headed exclusively to the US market.
  • The project_513/2 is decked out in a special livery that mimics the look worn by test cars, with a dazzling array of lines and lowercase e’s printed on the muscular bodywork.
  • At $181,990, the project_513/2 costs more than $36,000 more than the standard RS e-tron GT.

Some owners like to demystify their cars for a subtle look, but others want to turn as many heads as possible. With the new limited edition 2023 Audi RS e-tron GT project_513/2, attention seekers are in luck. Exclusive to the US market, the project_513/2 sees Audi’s 637-hp flagship EV wrapped in graphics meant to resemble the camouflage used on prototypes when they are tested on public roads.

The project_513/2—with the original internal codename—is the first Audi to offer a wrap with a graphics package from the factory. The gray color is applied directly to Mythos Black metallic paint and is accented by splashes of red, including the Audi logos front and rear, and the black 21-inch wheels cover red brake shoes. The dazzling case is covered in stripes and stylized lowercase e’s, with “project_513/2” etched into the rear quarter glass.

The eye-catching graphics carry over to the cabin, with red adorning the air vents, floor mats, steering wheel and Nappa leather seats. The dashboard is carbon fiber with a gray “e” design like the exterior, and the center armrest has an embossed “project_513/2” logo. Even the display on the 10.1-inch infotainment screen gets a logo as a reminder that this is not your ordinary RS e-tron GT.

Only 75 examples of the RS e-tron GT will receive the project_513/2 treatment, and the special EV carries a hefty premium over the normal RS e-tron GT’s $145,395 starting price at a whopping $181,990. Sales of the fancy limited edition will kick off this spring.
