The Le Mans 24 Hours are a legend. They are mentioned in the same breath as the Rallye Monte Carlo, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500. Since 1923, hundreds of thousands of motorsport enthusiasts have been flocking to La Sarthe year by year to experience the one-day race. To watch the protagonists in their sports cars battle for each place and each meter of tarmac with bated breath. The drivers cover 4,800 kilometers in 24 hours - almost as many as the Formula One racers in a whole year. Every Le Mans winner has gone down in history. The three Audi drivers Andr‚Äö Lotterer, Beno≈ít Tr‚Äöluyer and Marcel F‚Äûssler did so in a special way with the triumph they achieved in 2011. The film TRUTH IN 24 II documents the tenth and arguably most emotional triumph of the brand with the four rings at this sports car classic. After two Audi R18 TDI cars have retired following spectacular accidents, the remaining Audi fights a dramatic battle for overall victory with the three Peugeot 908 cars ? which the Audi trio ultimately decides in its favor with a narrow margin of 13 seconds. The film captures the entire drama of the fourth-narrowest running of the Le Mans 24 Hours ? with intimate insights into the team of Audi Sport and breath-taking pictures.

Audi RS Moments of Truth - 2011: Audi ultra
Audi RS "Moments of Truth" is a series of highly stylized, dynamic
short-form documentaries that capture a moment in time -- visual, visceral
proof of the impact that technological innovation and risk-taking has had
on performance in a highly competitive world.
This film tells the story of Audi ultra through the victory of the R18 at
the 2011 24 Hours of LeMans. Race driver Benoît Tréluyer and race
engineer Leena Gade focus the story on Tréluyer's incredible outside pass
of the Peugeot car in the late stages of the race. Tréluyer's risky pass
that contributed to ultimate victory was made with the confidence of
knowing the R18 possessed unparalleled power and handling by virtue of
Audi ultra lightweight technology. The film then links this motor sports
moment of truth to a story of ultra philosophy as implemented in the RS 5.
quattro GmbH engineer Michael Kerber brings to life the visual
technological proof in the form of waved brakes in the RS 5 and through
specific track footage of the RS 5.

Acoustic Innovation: e-sound by Audi
Audi's future e-tron models will cover long distances powered by
practically silent electric motors. To ensure that pedestrians in urban
settings will hear them, the brand has developed a synthetic solution: Audi
Sound is an especially exciting aspect of a vehicle. Although it can be
described in physical terms, there is no substitute for experiencing it
firsthand. A car's sound is emotional, not intellectual. Although we
consciously register a car's sounds only occasionally while on the road,
they are always there -- playing a crucial role in the driving experience.
Sounds send signals. Low-range frequencies suggest power and composure,
while mid-range frequencies emit sportiness and agility.
In a series-production Audi, a combustion engine currently supplies the
music. Conversely, the motor in an electric-powered e-tron is not an
option, as it is too quiet and its high frequencies are not exactly
melodious. Audi's e-tron models will therefore feature a synthetic sound
signature. Rudolf Halbmeir teamed up with his colleagues Axel Brombach and
Dr. Lars Hinrichsen to create it.
The e-sound by Audi may be artificial, but it is authentic. In fact, the
e-tron itself generates its sound by the millisecond. Dr. Lars Hinrichsen,
the expert for hardware and software, explains: "Data relating to the
electric motor's rotational speed, vehicle speed, loads, and other
parameters is continuously supplied by the vehicle to the control unit. It
then uses this data to generate sound."
