After the era of Diesel engines, the 80th edition of Le Mans marks the beginning of the hybrid's.
On four cars engaged by Audi, two will be equipped with hybrid technology, a safety net that Toyota did juge necessary!
The four prototypes will feature Audi's "Ultra Leigthweight" technology, however nothing has been disclosed on their powertrain.
Battery, flywheel, petrol or diesel?
We will have to wait for the end of February and the presentation of the prototypes for more information!
Here is a picture of the R18 at Sebring in March 2011.
