Flashback: Le Mans 2013 and the Audi win under unequal prerequisites

Le Mans 2013
Audi R18 e-tron quattro #2 (Audi Sport Team Joest), Loïc Duval (F), Tom Kristensen (DK), Allan McNish (GB)
  • Audi’s Le Mans wins in the rearview mirror: victory no. 12

In two weeks from now, the Audi R18 e-tron quattro will be challenged to claim its fourth consecutive victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours, with Audi competing against three manufacturers. At the same time, this will be a battle of the concepts: diesel vs. gasoline engines, kinetic vs. thermal energy recuperation and electromechanical vs. electrostatic vs. electrochemical storage. This brings back memories of the race two years ago.

Consumption data:
Audi A8

Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 9.3 – 5.7 (25.3 – 41.3 US mpg)
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 214 – 149 (344.4 – 239.8 g/mi)
(Figures vary depending on engine/transmission/wheels/tires)

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions data as well as the efficiency classes are dependent on the choice of wheels and tyres.
