A close look at the Audi E-Tron PB18 Supercar :O WOW!!
We were lucky enough to get up close and personal with the Audi E-Tron PB18 at Formula E this past weekend.. What a machine!
With a tested 0-60mph time of 2.0 seconds, we can't wait for the future :)
The concept uses three powerful electric motors – one up front and two in the rear. The latter are centrally located between the steering knuckles, each directly driving one wheel via half-shafts. They deliver power output of up to 150 kW to the front axle and 350 kW to the rear – the Audi PB18 e-tron is a true quattro, of course. Maximum output is 500 kW, with boosting, the driver can temporarily mobilize up to 570 kW. The combined torque of up to 830 newton meters (612.2 lb-ft) allows acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in scarcely more than 2 seconds – a speed that differs only marginally from that of a current LMP1 prototype.
