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."

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.

Audi 24 Hours of Le Mans: 2010 triumph
For the ninth time Audi has won the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans and thus
equalized Ferrari's position in the roll of honor in the French endurance
classic. At the 78th edition of the race, efficiency and reliability were
the decisive factors yet again -- both are special fortes of the Audi brand
which has a reputation of developing highly efficient automobiles. After
2000, 2002 and 2004, Audi managed to achieve a one-two-three triumph at Le
Mans for the fourth time.

340 km/h Fly Bys - 2013 Audi R18 E-Tron Quattro LMP1

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.

is driven by Marco Bonanomi, Oliver Jarvis and Filipe Albuquerque in the
LMP1 category (Le Mans Prototype 1).

2011 Audi R18 TDI LMP1 SOUND - Test at Monza Circuit
Today I saw at Monza Circuit the 2011 Audi LMP1 race car during a test
session for the 24h of Mans. I hoped that the new V6 engine would sound
louder than the old Audi engine. Unfortunatlely it's quiter. The sound is
like a strong wind flush.
