Since today, many manufacturers are starting to present their concepts and innovations in the Pebble Beach Elegance Competition. Now there was a preliminary presentation of the supercar from Audi. The car with a fully electric power plant was named BP18, and is a harbinger of a new line of supercars.

The car was developed jointly by udi Design Loft (Malibu, California) and Audi Sport (Neckarsulme, Germany). This concept is a demonstration of the possible development of design, and the capabilities of the “high-performance supercar of tomorrow”.

As a power unit used three-engine configuration with a maximum output of up to 680 horsepower. And there is a special mode, capable of a short-term increase in power to 775 horsepower. According to official data, the acceleration to 100 km/h of the new sports car will take only 2 seconds. The power reserve at full charge will be about 500 km, and the fast charge system will allow replenishing the charge by 80% in just 15 minutes.

The peculiarity of the model was an angular rapid design, as well as a body from a carbon fiber body. Presumably, the car was built on its own platform, and has a mass of 1,550 kg. Despite the electrical installation, the prototype received a massive radiator grille serving to cool the brake system and the battery.

Also, the manufacturer decided to focus on the driver’s control over the car. Therefore, the sports car is completely devoid of automatic piloting systems, and various automatic assistants, except for security systems. The unofficial name of the sports car is Level Zero.

Interior design also differs “sportiness” and represents a concentration of technology and ergonomics. The fully electronic instrument panel received a wide hexagonal display. A transparent information display is also installed on the front panel.

One of the conceptual features of cars is the sliding cockpit, thanks to which the car can change its length, and turn from a track into a road car.
