The new Audi R18 is a magnificent race car that was unveiled at the Audi Sport Finale event at the Audi Training Center in the German city of Munich.

Designed specifically for the 2016 race season, this particular iteration of the widely appreciated R8 has undergone a fundamental redesign effort that has managed it to come out with flying colors in the shape of sharpened aerodynamics, a hybrid drivetrain and a lightweight build that allows it to simply fly through the race track unhindered.

Audi hasn't revealed a whole lot of technical details about this vehicle just yet. However it's safe to say that this diesel-electric race car is a nod to the future of hybrid and lightweight auto systems.
