At that point the sleek four-door EV was still a prototype, though even then its focus was fairly clear. While Audi's high-performance electric grand tourer may be the mechanical twin of the Porsche Taycan, here that all drives to a different tune.

YouTube Premium Lite goes back to basics for one big advantage

As it stands, subscribers to YouTube Premium get quite a bit for the $11.99 they pay each month. The main draw of YouTube Premium is obviously the fact that it gets rid of ads, but a Premium subscription also allows users to download videos for offline viewing, play videos in the background, and nets them access to YouTube Music. Now YouTube is testing a new "Premium Lite" subscription tier that eliminates most of those perks in exchange for a lower monthly cost.

Before Mercedes-AMG came to fruition, what was then known as simply AMG started life building a racing engine for the 300 SEL 6.3 sedan.
