2011 Audi R18 Reveal
With an extended motorsport commitment focused on efficiency and the use of production-related vehicles, AUDI AG will also support its product offensive on the race tracks in 2011. The new Audi R18, a closed coupe that has been specifically developed for the Le Mans 24 Hours, will make its debut in Audi's line-up. A new DTM car is also being built at Audi Sport. In addition, Audi will extend and restructure its customer sport program. Audi aims to continue its string of victories at the Le Mans 24 Hours with a completely new LMP1 sports car development. Since its debut in 1999, the brand with the Four Rings has won the world's most important endurance race as many as nine times with the R8, R10 TDI and R15 TDI models. In doing so, Audi has equaled this feat in the race's roll of honor with Ferrari. With the new R18, which was presented at the Audi Sportpark in Ingolstadt on the evening of Friday, December 10, 2010, Audi is aiming for its tenth Le Mans success in 2011.
