Audi has released a launch trailer for the upcoming hybrid twin of its Le Mans winning R18. The Audi R18 e-tron quattro revives the label made famous by the Audi Quattro Group B rally car and the A4 Quattro touring car. Excellence driven by four wheels.
In addition to a diesel-powered rear-end, a Williams-developed flywheel system will provide electric energy to the front axle. Both the hybrid version and the ‘regular’ TDI, now dubbed the Audi R18 Ultra will be entered into the 24 Hours of Le Mans with two cars apiece.
Not unlike its new Le Mans challenger, Audi’s launch trailer is quite spectacular. Sometimes artwork really is a work of art.
