Audi teases autonomous RS7

Most big players on the automotive market are researching one form or another of autonomous vehicles, and so is Audi.

In their latest video, however, they tease something a bit different then the rest.

The video promises a driverless Audi RS7, which is not you everyday car by far. Set to do a complete lap at the German Touring Car Championship (DTM) finale, the Audi RS7 is expected to do just as good as with a decent pilot behind the wheel. The 560 Hp will be pushing the car to 240 km/h, which is quite close to its electronic limiter.

As a show piece, I can completely understand why the German manufacturer would do this, but other than that, I fail to see the reasoning behind it. The Audi RS7 is meant to be enjoyed by the owner. It’s not the kind of car you buy just to be a passenger. So then, why would they even bother with autonomous driving? Maybe just to scare passengers.
