Audi releases “Honour” video, celebrates Le Mans win

Called “Honour”, the video was uploaded today by Audi Deutschland and looks back at this year’s Le Mans 24-hour endurance race where Audi obtained a one-two success. In the description of the video on YouTube, Audi says thanks to both Porsche and Toyota “for a great competition” which is a nice way of appreciating your competitors participating in one of the most demanding races ever.

As a reminder, the 2014 Audi R18 e-tron quattro took the win with the car driven by Fassler/Lotterer/Treluyer which covered no less than 379 laps. In second place arrived the other remaining R18, the one driven by Kristensen/Gene/di Grassi which completed 376 laps. It’s actually the 13th time when Audi triumphs at Le Mans and in this year’s race the winning car consumed 22 percent less diesel in comparison to the 2013-spec Audi R18 e-tron quattro which also won the endurance race.

While last year’s car featured LED headlights, the latest iteration of the racer was equipped with laser technology which was carried over into a limited-production road-going model, the R8 LMX. The car which won this year’s race had an average speed of 214 km/h and the fastest lap was established by Andre Lotterer who did it in 3 minutes and 22.657 seconds.
