Audi's first big motor sport program in 1981 was based on the quattro permanent four-wheel drive. After numerous championship wins and the banning of four-wheel drive in FIA circuit-based racing series for the 1998 season, a model from Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm with four driven wheels now returns to the race tracks -- the Audi R18 e-tron quattro.
Four-wheel drive in an LMP1 sports car: Audi, in its 30 year plus motor sport history, once again makes a pioneering step as the brand with the four rings becomes the first automobile manufacturer ever to field a diesel hybrid at Le Mans. "To develop the hybrid technology for Le Mans is at least as ambitious and challenging as our diesel project was in its early stages," explains Head of Audi Motorsport Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich. "The first test results are very encouraging and we are intrigued to see just how this technology performs in combination with our ultra lightweight technology on the race track at Le Mans."

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.

Audi LED Design & Technology - featuring the Audi Q7
Efficient, reliable, one-of-a-kind. Audi was the first automobile
manufacturer to recognize the potential of revolutionary LED lighting
technology and then incorporate it during development of its vehicles. The
brand with the four rings has since acquired a technological edge putting
it years ahead of the competition, and is a key driver of this innovation.
Crucial for the exterior design: Not only during the day but also at night,
all Audi models are recognizable at a glance thanks to LED daytime running
lights. And each Audi has its own personality: The sweeping light strip on
the Audi A1 exudes determination. And that of the new Audi A8 radiates
strength and dominance: Its headlights were designed and constructed
entirely on the basis of energy-efficient and environmentally friendly LED

Here you are just a short video about the 2013 Audi R18 E-Tron Quattro,
fitted with the bodywork they'll use for the next 24 hours of Le Mans
("long-tail" version), making some very fast fly bys at Monza Circuit. The
track has been modified (the first chicane has been "cutted") for the
occasion in order to allow Audi to test their car driving at high speeds
for the upcoming 24 hours of Le Mans. If I've done correctly the
calculations the R18 was going at about 330 km/h when there are the signs
that indicate the braking point before the first chicane so I think it's
quite possible to reach 340 km/h before the long turn.

It's powered by a turbocharged V6 DOHC
TDI engine which is able to produce 510HP and over 850NM of torque, but
thanks to its light weight and aerodynamics, can easily reach a top speed
of over 340km/h.

Group B Worship: Ford RS200 and Audi Sport Quattro - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
To enter Group B in the 1980s, car makers had to build 200 road-going
examples of the car they intended to rally. These rules created some of the
most spectacular road cars of all time. I love rallying: the chance to
drive an RS200 and a Sport Quattro nearly sent me to the nut-house. Fire up
