At Audi, race cars and production cars have a lot in common in many technical areas – including their controls and displays. The best example is the similarity between the Audi R18 e-tron quattro race car prototype, which will start at the 24 hours of Le Mans this weekend, and the new production Audi R8 sports car. The designs of their steering wheels and digital displays show significant commonalities. The high-performance sports car, which will go on sale late this summer, is part of a sporty model family together with the GT race car, the Audi R8 LMS, and the battery-electric powered Audi R8 e-tron. In its latest evolutionary stage, the Audi R8 offers even more power, speed and endurance.
