The Audi R18 is a Le Mans Prototype (LMP) racing car constructed by the German car manufacturer Audi AG. It is the successor to the Audi R15 TDI. Like its predecessor, the R18 uses a TDI turbocharged diesel engine but with a reduced capacity of 3.7 litres and in a V6 configuration. For the first time since the 1999 R8C, Audi's Le Mans prototype uses a closed cockpit design. The R18 is also the first racing car from Audi to feature hybrid power.
Although Audi have previously given each new developed model of endurance racing car a distinct model number the head of Audi Sport, Wolfgang Ullrich, suggests the R18 designation for Audi endurance racing cars could be used for the foreseeable future as a result of rival car manufacturer Renault already holding trademarks for car model names R19 through to R35. There have been three further evolutions of R18 since the original spec introduced in 2011, the latest is the 2015 spec which is competing in the 2015 World Endurance Championship.
The 83rd 24 Hours of Le Mans (French: 83e 24 Heures du Mans) is an automobile endurance event held from 10 to 14 June 2015 at the Circuit de la Sarthe, Le Mans, France. It is the 83rd running of the 24 Hour race organised by the Automobile Club de l'Ouest as well as the third round of the 2015 FIA World Endurance Championship. A test day was held two weeks prior to the race on May 31. The No. 18 Porsche of Neel Jani, Romain Dumas, and Marc Lieb started from pole position after Jani broke the lap record in qualifying. Defending race winners Benoît Tréluyer, Marcel Fässler, and André Lotterer started from the fifth grid position.
In comparison to the 2014 car the 2015 R18 e-tron quattro's aerodynamics have been significantly improved and the turbocharged 4.0L V6 diesel engine now produces more power while using less fuel. The flywheel accumulator system's capacity has been increased from 500KJ to 700KJ as the 2015 Audi's energy output per round has been increased from 2MJ to 4MJ. Changes also include a significant increase of the hybrid system's power output.
Audi R18 e-tron quattro (a 2012 R18 with the high downforce sprint bodywork) was featured in the Audi RS 6 Avant TV commercial titled 'Perfect Fit'.The car was also used on public roads in a commercial to welcome Porsche back for the 2014 Le Mans race.
