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."

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."

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.

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.

Koenigsegg Agera R - 402km/h EPIC Fly By on the Nurburgring!
Like on Facebook: http://on.fb.me/Gumbal
Last couple of days I visited the Gran Turismo Events on the Nurburgring.
Koenigsegg Norway also enjoyed this great event with their Official Test
Car 7031 Streetfighter and the World Record Car Agera R.
When the awesome 1115 HP Koenigsegg Agera R passed the pit lane on
Döttinger Höhe on Thursday everyone was amazed by the speed of the car.
Using the whole 3.5 kilometer straight, the Koenigsegg logged a "quite
impressive" 401.6 km/h before braking before the bridge at Tiergarten.
The Agera R has a normal Koenigsegg road setup, was driven on 98 oktan fuel
and on standard Michelin Pilot tires.
