Audi with most fuel-efficient powertrain at Le Mans
- Fierce competition in group of hybrid sports cars
- R18 e-tron quattro diesel hybrid sports car with most fuel-efficient powertrain
- Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Hackenberg: “Audi has arguably never before faced such a difficult task at Le Mans”
Audi has been competing at Le Mans since 1999 in order to achieve sporting success with technological innovations. Never before has an LMP1 race car sporting the four rings been as light, fuel-saving and efficient as the current Audi R18 e-tron quattro. As required by the regulations, its fuel consumption per 100 kilometers has to be up to 30 percent lower than that of the previous models. Despite these tough requirements, Audi is endeavoring to battle for its 13th victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours on June 14 and 15.
