Ingolstadt, October 9, 2014 – Audi takes the world’s sportiest piloted driving car to the starting line: A driverless Audi RS 7 Sportback will take a lap on the Hockenheim race track on Sunday, October 19, in the season finale of the German Touring Car Championship (DTM).

The Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept car will tackle the Hockenheim track at racing speed. With the latest Audi developments on board, the technology platform will drive to its physical limits with millimetre-perfect precision. In the process, it will be approximately as fast as with a professional race car driver at the wheel.

Tests conducted so far indicate that on the Grand Prix track, a lap time of just over two minutes can be expected, and on this course, the technology platform should reach speeds of up to 240 km/h.

Using the Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept car, Audi wants to show the great potential of piloted driving, which the premium carmaker is developing for the future.

The performance of the world’s sportiest piloted driving car will be broadcast live and exclusively on the Internet on October 19 starting at 9:45pm (AEDST) on Audi MediaTV.

More information will be available starting Tuesday, October 14, at 11:00am (AEDST) here.
