Audi R18 e-tron quattro - "The evolution of racing"
A new era of racing at Le Mans is upon us
and Audi is leading the field once again through new technology
in the form of the Audi R18 e-tron quattro.
Audi has won races around the world utilizing groundbreaking technologies such as quattro, turbocharged direct injection (TFSI) and turbo diesel (TDI) engines. Each of these found their way into very successful production vehicles such as the original quattro, the iconic Audi R8 and everything from an A3 to an Q7 TDI.
Now it is time for a new era of racing technology through the R18 e-tron quattro which uses brake regeneration to power the front wheels while the V6 TDI engine powers the rear.
Watch the Audi Sport team explain the philosophy of developing technologies for the track that then find their way to the streets in this video.

The Audi e-tron Spyder in Malibu, California
The Audi e-tron Spyder features what is without a doubt the most advanced
and simultaneously the most consistent evolution of the current Audi design
language, while also providing initial hints at the design language of
future Audi sports cars. It reinterprets the most important design elements
that already characterized the previous e-tron concept vehicles. This also
ensures the necessary formal differentiation to the purely electric-powered
Audi e-tron shown at the 2010 Detroit Motor Show. The two-seater is
equipped with a 300-hp twin-turbo V6 TDI
at the rear axle and two electric motors producing a total of 64 kW at the
front axle. The Audi e-tron Spyder's low total weight of 3,196 lbs combined
with the high-torque TDI and the two electric motors results in respectable
performance. The car accelerates to 60 in less than 4.5 seconds, and top
speed is electronically governed at 155 mph.
