2012 Audi R18 – and hybrid win Le Mans

June, 2012 § Leave a comment

Audi “R18 e-tron quattro” became the first hybrid to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race.  The car uses a diesel V6 plus a “F1 Williams” Hybrid Power designed flywheel accumulator system for energy storage which delivers 500 kJ to the front wheels via an electric motor, giving the car four (quattro) wheel drive.

I’m posting pics of Audi R18 Ultra (diesel) and R18 e-tron Quattro (diesel+hybrid).
