2014 Audi Sport Quattro Laserlight Concept
Audi Sport quattro Laserlight Concept
Dynamical excogitation, brobdingnagian index and new electronic features: Audi is presenting a enchanting engineering construct car at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Demonstrate (CES) in Las Vegas, USA. The Audi Variation quattro laserlight construct is redolent of the greco-roman Sport quattro of 1983 spell pointing towards the futurity – with the up-to-the-minute of the stain’s technologies in card loanblend drives, exploiter ascendancy and expose interfaces and ignition engineering.
“The new shew car demonstrates expert ‘Vorsprung’ on many levels,” says Professor. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg. “On-board this car we deliver e-tron engineering with 515 kW of mightiness and 2.5 l/100 km (94.09 US mpg) fire saving; laser headlights that exit all old systems in the darkness with its higher execution also as new show and operational systems with up-to-date electronic execution. We are screening the futurity of Audi hither.”
The coupe, a new evolutionary level of the Fun quattro conception, multi-coloured in the colouring Plasm Red, combines the index of the historical Fun quattro with excited elegance. Its consistence is tautly set ended its big wheels. The overhangs are myopic, and the car’s proportions shew a sportsmanlike counterweight. With a wheelbase of 2,784 mm (109.61 in), it is 4,602 mm (181.18 in) longsighted. At a breadth of 1,964 mm (77.32 in), the two-door modelling is selfsame across-the-board, and it is equitable 1,386 mm (54.57 in) marvelous, which is exceptionally low.
In the treble headlights, a distinctive quattro boast, Audi is demonstrating the futurity of light engineering by compounding matrix LED and laser igniter technologies. Two low-profile trapezoidal elements are seeable inside the headlights – the outer one generates the dispirited twinkle victimisation matrix LEDs and an aperture masque, piece the intimate factor produces laser sparkle for high-beam functionality.

The sinewy laser diodes are importantly littler than LED diodes; they are sole a few microns in diam. Enlightening the route for a outdistance of virtually 500 meters (1,640 ft), the laser high-beam lightness has roughly double the ignition scope and threefold the luminousness of LED highschool send lights. Therein hereafter engineering, Audi is again demonstrating its leaders office in self-propelling light engineering with a arrangement that volition besides be ill-used on the subspecies raceway in the 2014 R18 e-tron quattro.
The angulate, swept-back C pillars of the Audi Fun quattro laserlight conception car and the blisters supra the fenders are early invention elements remindful of the classical Athletics quattro. The liberal shoulders of the torso were reinterpreted and intensively graven to carry eve greater oomph. End-to-end the car, acute contours build sinewy surfaces – the interplay betwixt bulging and concave curvatures defines the gymnastic fiber of the coupe.
The hexangular single-frame wicket too offers an expectation on next innovation of the sportsmanlike output models. The frown segment is nigh erect, piece the speed follows the shape of the cap; the cover inset is a distinctive result from car racing. The low grill emphasizes the shew car’s breadth. Two great, upright blades separate apiece of the enceinte air inlets; their mannequin is perennial in the creases of the cowl. The rail-splitter, which is made of c fibre built polymer (CFRP), is shifted far to the forepart, as on a racer.
The compounding of a swept-back spyglass cabin and all-encompassing shoulders defines the proportions at the ass. Another shaping component at the backside of the prove car is the CFRP diffusor, which extends upwards importantly. Its amphetamine segment is cavitied, piece its frown division houses two heavy, ellipse tailpipes. The backside lights, which are backed by a nigrify CFRP impanel, are orthogonal in cast – another quattro citation. The baggage infinite, which is strengthened by a heavy crossbreeding bar stiffener, offers 300 liters (10.59 cu ft) of freight capacitance.
Exact invention details round the dynamical feel of the Audi Variation quattro laserlight construct. The sill extensions are made of CFRP, the doorway handles electrically widen from the doorway when they observe the feeler of a script. The gist lockup wheels bear a pentad twin-spoke designing.
Lightweight design made visible: the interior
In its munificently cut upcountry, the graceful sporting styling of the demonstrate car is continued with iniquity grayish colours and strip lines. The national designing and cloth selections establish the Audi doctrine of whippersnapper innovation. The lithesome board is evocative of the fender of a glider. The support construction of the inside is a c carapace that likewise serves as a depot compartment in the doors.
A demarcation of trimness below the windscreen wraps roughly the driver and forepart rider and integrates functions such as the privileged threshold handles. The fold racer scale seating with their gamy sidelong supports and incorporated mind restraints, jointly the two behind seating, cater place for quatern persons. The mood controls are incorporate in the air nozzles; a one factor is put-upon to mastery the loudness, temperature and loudness of the air swarm. In increase to screening mood ascendence settings, the thin show at the centers of the air nozzles likewise shows media information.
New solutions: displays and controls
The inside of the Audi Play quattro laserlight conception focuses lots on the driver. Fifty-fifty the multifunction play wheel points the way towards next sporting output solutions. It has two buttons which the driver can use to ascendance the loan-blend ride, a red start-stop release, a push for the Audi cause take fomite manipulation organisation and a “Purview” push to ascendence the Audi practical cockpit.
All key info is shown on the gravid Audi TFT showing in high-resolution, cubic artwork; a with-it Tegra 30 cpu from Audi cooperator Nvidia processes the art. The driver can permutation betwixt unlike modes. E.g., in the MMI style the prevalent exhibit elements admit the sailing map and media lists, spell in the Authoritative purview the speedometer appears in the spotlight.
Nigh all functions of the Audi Athletics quattro laserlight conception can be controlled from the encourage highly-developed MMI final that is mounted on the centerfield comfort concluded the burrow. Its heavy roundabout pushbutton, which besides serves as a touchpad, can be pushed in 4 directions, and it is encircled on leash sides by four-spot buttons – for the master card, submenus, options and a dorsum routine.
The new interface has a carte construction whose nonrational layout is interchangeable thereto of a hurt sound. All often victimised functions can be accessed lightning truehearted. For well-nigh inputs, good a few stairs are requisite thanks to a new release schoolbook lookup lineament; loosely good four-spot characters serve for a pilotage savoir-faire. The driver can chop-chop coil done lists or whizz the map ikon victimisation multitouch gestures on the touchpad. Articulation ascendancy functionality has likewise been intensively boost highly-developed.
Powerful and highly efficient: the drive system
The card loan-blend thrust gives the Audi Variation quattro laserlight conception enthralling dynamical functioning. Its arrangement outturn is 515 kW (700 hp), and its organization torsion is 800 Nm (590.05 lb-ft). Index flows via a limited eight-speed tiptronic to the quattro drivetrain, which features a mutant derivative at the ass axle. The establish car’s combined fire use, based on the applicable fire thriftiness touchstone, is upright 2.5 liters of fire per 100 km (94.09 US mpg) – which equates to CO2 emissions of 59 g/km (94.95 g/knot).
The burning locomotive is a four-liter V8 with biturbo charging; it produces 412 kW (560 hp) of ability and 700 Nm (516.29 lb-ft) of torsion. The cylinder on involve (COD) organisation, which deactivates quartet cylinders nether share lading and a start-stop organization pee the heavy eight-cylinder locomotive identical effective. Placed ‘tween the 4.0 TFSI and the transmitting is a discoidal galvanizing motive that produces 110 kW and 400 Nm (295.02 lb-ft). It draws its campaign muscularity from a lithium-ion bombardment at the back, which stores 14.1 kWh of push – plenty for capable 50 km (31.07 miles) of all-electric impulsive. An Audi wallbox that is ill-used for charging provides for optimum vim transferee.
An healthy direction arrangement controls the interplay of locomotive and centrifugal on necessitate. The driver can alternate ‘tween iii dissimilar modes. In EV fashion, good the electrical centrifugal operates; its mellow torsion propels the display car with batch of exponent – level remote of the metropolis. The fighting gun indicates the conversion to Cross style to the driver – by a modification in cycle underground; this is through so that the driver can advisedly tempt the modality extract.
The Intercrossed manner aims at optimum fuel-savings in the interplay ‘tween the TFSI and the galvanizing drive, and environmental and itinerary information are utilised hither. The driver can take the Clench and Burster modes in the MMI to determine the operational scheme, e.g. if the driver wants to control that sufficient electricity is useable for the concluding kilometers to the finish. The Audi driving quality active fomite manipulation organisation offers tied more ascendancy options – someone drive profiles are prepare for dissimilar levels of regenerative braking.
In Athletics fashion, the operational scheme configures the ride organisation for maximal ability. When the V8 and galvanizing motive are boosting, the Audi Athletics quattro laserlight conception accelerates from a stalemate to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 3.7 seconds and can range a top amphetamine of 305 km/h (189.52 mph).
Body and chassis
A whippersnapper pattern scheme likewise plays a major office in the car’s dynamical functioning. A combining of radical high-strength blade mainsheet and geomorphological elements of shape al is victimised in the occupier cadre. The doors and fenders are made of aluminium, and the ceiling, locomotive cap and back cover are made of CFRP. This results in an unladen slant of upright 1,850 kilograms (4,078.55 lb), including the prominent bombardment clique.
The forepart abatement is comprised of pentad links per rack, patch the ass dangling is based on the self-tracking trapezoidal linkup rule of Audi, which guarantees dynamical execution and stableness. Besotted tuning of the springs and jounce absorbers micturate the Audi Play quattro laserlight conception handgrip tightly to the route, patch Audi cause quality makes the drive have tied more miscellaneous. The active guidance organization varies the steerage proportion as a purpose of impulsive hurrying. The bracken calipers clutch gravid, c fiber-ceramic bracken discs, and the weary sizing is 285/30 R 21.
