From the outside, it looks as though I’m in the back seat of a new Audi e-tron, being driven around Speed Vegas for roughly two laps.

That I was in an Audi was no coincidence. Holoride began as a project within the automaker, as it explored potential ways to supercharge the cabin experience in its future models.
