Self-driving Audi reaches 200km/h on Hockenheimring race track

Calculators can do maths faster than you, machines can manufacture faster than you, and now a car has driven itself faster, and better, than you.

A self-driving Audi RS7 has done laps of the Hockenheimring in Germany, hitting top speeds of more than 200km/h.

Audi has long been at the forefront of driverless technology, becoming the first car maker to receive an autonomous driving permit from the state of California.

The latest piloted driving model uses special GPS technology to orient itself on the track, and Audi claim it can correct itself by the centimetre.

Audi says it hopes to have the technology in production cars by the end of the decade.

A new model of driverless car speeds around a course in Germany.
