Audi develops sophisticated aerodynamics for Le Mans
- Successful debut of the Audi R18 e-tron quattro with low downforce
- Two body versions tested in comparison at Spa
- Aerodynamics plays crucial part in 2014 efficiency targets
The Audi R18 e-tron quattro uses less fuel than any of its predecessors. In addition to the powertrain, aerodynamics makes a significant contribution to achieving excellent lap times with low fuel consumption. At round two of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) at Spa (Belgium), the second body version of the new Audi R18 e-tron quattro made its debut. It has less aerodynamic drag for the Le Mans high-speed circuit.
