Having premiered at Pebble Beach Automotive Week in California recently, the all-electric Audi PB18 e-tron presents a radical vision for the high-performance sports car of tomorrow. Broad and flat, visibly inspired by the wind tunnel and the racetrack, its very presence signals that it is destined to push boundaries.
A single seater designed as a radical driving machine for the racetrack and road, the AUDI PB18 e-tron shares technological DNA with the successful LMP1 racing car Audi R18 e-tron. With an interior developed around the ideal driver’s position in the centre, Audi aims to offer the driver an experience that is otherwise available only in a racing car like the Audi R18.
The concept uses three powerful electric motors – one up front and two in the rear, each directly driving one wheel via half-shafts, thereby focusing on powerful performance and maximum efficiency. Drawing inspiration from motorsport, dynamics and emotion top its list of specifications.
