Audi R18 e-tron quattro 2014 – guess the fuel

In this blog: First official photo of Audi R18 e-tron quattro eyeing another Endurance Championship trophy!

Looks like Audi Sport is ready for the Endurance Championship season and will (as always) be racing for the win in 2014!

That's true for the second consecutive year in the Endurance Championship, as well as numerous times in a row in Le Mans! Now the question is if Audi will be mating diesel or gas engine with the electric motor. That it will be a hybrid is absolutely sure, the only difference could be in the type of fuel...

Audi showed (though rather frugal) picture of R18 e-tron quattro for the upcoming race. It was tested for the first time last week at Sebring. The car will compete in LMP1 (Le mans prototypes) class, and will face some super competition from Porsche and Toyota (TS 030) hybrids, returning to premuim LMP1 class. Unable to beat the e-tron before, Toyota's team will be more than focused on the win this time...

So we'll watch the race to see how upgraded R18 e-tron quattro performs, and meanwhile Audi promises detailed information about the model before the end of 2013.
