- LED headlights with matrix-beam principle define new standard
- Additional functions on the steering wheel as a valuable strategic tool

But active safety has long been gaining importance in racing as well. Modern assistance systems such as the ones used in the Audi R18 e-tron quattro defuse dangerous situations in the preliminary stages.
