During this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, which is currently underway, the Audi PB18 e-tron Concept debuted at Laguna Seca and it’s been one of the biggest talking points of the incredibly impressive show. We’ve showed you Audi’s official photos and we’ve brought you some live photos from our boots on the ground. Now, Audi has released some videos of the PB18 e-tron and it’s even more incredible in motion.
One of the biggest talking points about the Audi PB18 e-tron has been its sliding driver’s seat. So if the driver wants to just drive on a normal road or with a passenger, the seat can be in its normal position, on one side of the car. But if the driver wants to drive on a track or just wants to drive hard on the road and doesn’t have a passenger, the seat can be moved to the middle of the car, like a McLaren F1 or a Formula One car.
The first video shows this off. In the video, its owner sips his cappuccino and then gets into the Audi PB18 e-tron for a drive on the left-hand side of the car. After he arrives at his destination, a race track, he puts on his racing suit, slides the seat over to the middle and hits the track. It’s pretty awesome actually and it shows off the inside of the car.
In the second video, we get a long walkthrough of the car. So we get to see all of its awesome details up close and personal. We also get to hear the whir of its electric motors making 670 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque. It’s a long video but it’s worth watching because it’s just such an awesome car.
This is the best concept car Audi has debuted in a long time and it hopefully points to a production car for the near future, possibly something to replace the Audi R8.
