This is Audi’s 2016 WEC Challenger

Audi have unveiled their 2016 World Endurance Championship title challenger today. The new R18 is a complete redesign from its predecessor, featuring a more aggressive aerodynamic package which resembles this years Porsche 919.

Audi will be moving to the 6 megajoules from 4 megajoules of electric output in 2016, which should allow it to keep up with Toyota and Porsche who will be switching to 8 megajoules. This is alongside its world class diesel engine, which of course has seen many successes in Le Mans throughout the years.

Along with Porsche, both manufacturers have agreed to enter only two cars into the blue ribboned 24 hours of Le Mans next year, meaning a comeback for Nico Hulkenberg is now off the cards alongside a potential attempt at taking the triple crown of motorsport from Juan Pablo Montoya.
