Audi R18 e-tron quattro: From Le Mans Victory to Audi of Huntington


At last year's Le Mans, the Audi R18 e-tron quattro racer left us with many questions following its impressive performance. With its delivery of over 500 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque, we're not sure how suited the R18 e-tron quattro is for everyday driving yet we can't help but wonder if we'll see it offered at dealerships like Audi of Huntington.


Its practicality may be debatable, but there's no arguing whether this diesel-hybrid hypercar would be a fun addition to the new Audi lineup. For those performance fanatics drooling over its ultimate horsepower offering, you may find satisfaction very soon-- the auto brand is considering producing a limited amount of R18 e-tron quattro racers in three to four years. Codenamed "Scorpion," the new model conjures up images of Ryan Gosling's Drive character's signature getaway getup.


With such an impressive powertrain, performance capabilities, and its ties to racing victories, we won't be surprised to see the Scorpion fetch a lofty retail price. Equipment required for this Audi to hit such mind-blowing highs is more expensive than the more conventional vehicles. However, we have financing options available so driving an Audi vehicle out of our showroom is as easy as the Le Mans is for the R18 e-tron quattro.


As mentioned, there is still time before the Scorpion crawls into Huntington Station, NY, but in the meantime, feel free to swing by to test drive other top performers in the new Audi lineup. Behind the wheel of the speedy S4, you'll surely be distracted by its premium powertrain and sporty handling, but don't worry, we'll remind you of the Scorpion's arrival right here on our blog.
