Another 24 Hours

It’s the most famous endurance race in the world. The 24 Hours of Le Mans can be a grueling test of stamina for both man and machine, and just like with our road vehicles, compromise is not an option. It’s that kind of commitment that led to back-to-back victories in 2012 and 2013—the first and second ever for a hybrid. The Audi R18 e-tron® quattro® won with a combination of less fuel consumption and higher speeds, beating out its competitors on the track and in the efficiency index as well. No other brand has been so successful at Le Mans in such a short period of time. Audi has now won seven of the last eight races—12 overall—and has no plans on stopping.
