Back in September, while attending the Audi Future Lab Mobility conference in Munich, we had a chance to take a surprisingly close look at the Audi R18 e-tron quattro. On display that day at a downtown warehouse was the cutaway chassis you see here – with #1 livery and a faux Dindo Capello driver.
As secretive as Audi Sport tends to be while in competition, we were most surprised to see this year’s car so exposed. Even though the season was over, we figured the occasion was pretty special. As you might expect, those of us attending the event crawled all around the chassis, examined it and even snapped photos.
If you think the cutaway looks familiar after last week’s Audi Sport season finale event, you’d not be mistaken. A silhouetted picture of the display in profile was released as part of the brand’s information release regarding 2013.
In the time since September, the Audi Future Lab Mobility displays have also been turned into a museum display that’s been set up on the ground floor of the Audi museum mobile at the Audi Forum in Ingolstadt. Part of that display is this R18 cutaway chassis. We’d suggest anyone headed to Ingolstadt on business or perhaps to take delivery of a vehicle check out this very impressive piece. However, just in case you won’t have the opportunity, here is an in-depth photo gallery of the R18 that we shot on that day.
We’ve included a few of our favorite angles of the R18 e-tron quattro cutaway in this story though you can find many more photos in our photo gallery linked to the right and also below. Enjoy.
