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.

TRUTH IN 24 II - Every Second Counts
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.

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.

Audi Unveil Diesel Hybrid, AWD R18 E-Tron Quattro for Le Mans
All R18s use identical chassis, the only visible difference being "Fin"
livery. This video was shot before the official launch of the "e-tron
Quattro" so expect the absence of "Quattro" livery to be as a result of a
Audi R18 e-Tron Quattro 300km/h+ Fly Bys on Track!
I have filmed the incredible Audi R18 e-Tron Hybrid Quattro LMP1 during a
private test day at Monza circuit. This will be the next Audi which will
participate at the 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans in the LMP1 category (Le Mans
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.
