Thanks for posting that. What an amazing video!

If you think about it, he's going up the slope at 85 degrees (so almost 100% vertical). I'd assume there is some Audi approved underwear that was created for this!

One thing that was interesting, is I'd assume the e-tron would use 4 motors (one for each wheel), but it appears they have a single front motor to an open differential.

Note. It is an 85% slope rather than 85 degree.
85 feet of rise over 100 feet run.
Converts to a 40.36 degree slope.

Still steep. Especially on ice!

My bad! Thanks for correcting that. If he got almost to the top, it powered out and that cable brake locked, how much fun would that be to get the car back down?
