Ever since the first trailer for the Spies in Disguise animation was released a while back, Audi has been going on and on about how perfect the animated RSQ e-tron car is for the story's main character. And it should be, as this is the first animated concept car the Germans have specifically created.
Audi is no stranger to lending its four ring image to be used in movies, and it also shares an older connection with the main spy in disguise, Will Smith. The company and the actor have been partners ever since the I, Robot adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s novel, when the precursor of the current animated car, the RSQ, was used.

Unlike the RSQ of 2004 though, the e-tron variant does not exist in physical form, and it has been created solely on a digital level. Even so, it follows all the current design and engineering cues of modern-day and future Audis: that means an electric drive, aggressive styling, and a full autonomous driving.

Spies in Disguise opens in U.S. theaters less than a month from now, and with a flurry of animations targeting increased sales during holidays, Audi is trying to help by releasing a new video of the virtual car in action.

The nearly two minutes video shows the main characters, Lance Sterling (Will Smith) and Walter Becket (Tom Holland), inside the e-tron, trying to escape a pursuing missile fired from a helicopter.

All the right details of the car (some of which also used in production cars) are shown, including the virtual cockpit, the range of the unreal battery, and many more.

"The action-packed super-spy storyline provides us with a creative medium to showcase innovation and technology, and all that is possible with the future of mobility,” admitted in a statement Sven Schuwirth, Vice President Brand Audi, Digital Business and Customer Experience.
