Audi has unveiled a concept car at Pebble Beach Automotive Week for the first time ever. The new PB 18 e-tron is a high-performance concept combining success from Audi’s LMP1 race car and the R18 e-tron. The car is powered by three electric motors, outputting up to 570 kW (764 horsepower).
The PB 18 e-tron concept was conceived at Audi’s Malibu, California design studios and the choice to debut it at Pebble Beach was obvious due to that. The “PB” in the concept’s name is for Pebble Beach and the 18 from the R18 e-tron that’s had so much success in the Le Mans circuit. Audi says that the PB 18 e-tron is a “Level Zero” car, made purely for driving with no interference from electronics or automated systems.
