Autonomous cars are looking more likely to be the future for the automotive industry with every passing day. Companies like Google and Audi are testing their self-driving cars on a regular basis, evaluating their technology and fine tuning it along the way.
Today, in a press release issued by Audi, the German automaker announced the “world’s sportiest piloted driving car.” The car itself is an RS7, but unlike the ones you see on the street, it does not need a driver. In fact, Audi states that they will unleash the autonomous RS7 on the Hockenheimring without a driver.

Audi’s online channel, Audi MediaTV, will be broadcasting the run in its entirety on Sunday, Oct. 19 at 12:45 (CEST).
