Audi recently invited a small group of lucky journalists to the Misano circuit in Italy to test the legendary, Le Mans-winning Audi R18 e-tron quattro. For most people, a chance like this will never come in their life, which is why EVO magazine, along with journalist Dickie Meaden, were sure to document their time spent with the racecar that will go down in history as one of the best prototypes to ever grace Le Sarthe.
Audi only gave the media four laps in the R18, which is barely enough time to become acquainted with the endless amount of buttons on the steering wheel, let alone to feel the car and put in a good lap time. Meaden walks away from the ordeal a little overwhelmed, which probably puts the R18 into a rather accurate perspective. Check it out in the video below, and try not to get too upset that you’ll never be one of the few people lucky enough to take a spin in the R18.
