Audi PB18 e-tron: Mid-engine shooting brake EV for both road and track

The Audi PB18 e-tron has a practical shooting brake body, and two seats with 3-point harnesses, but can be reconfigured as a central monoposto for racing.

The PB18 e-tron has two electric motors. The front motor makes 150kW (201hp), an the rear motor makes 350kW (469hp). Together they deliver 500kW (671hp) and 830Nm (612 lb-ft), with 570kW (764hp) available on “overboost”. The car has a 0-100km/h time of just over 2 seconds.
