Audi to race hybrid R18 prototypes in 2012 Le Mans

Audi will be entering two super hybrid racecars into the 24-hour Le Mans endurance challenge this year. The first is the Audi R18 e-tron quattro, a four-wheel drive diesel hybrid, and the other is the Audi R18 ultra, which uses a super lightweight design to accommodate a heavier hybrid drive train.
