Audi PB18 e-tron Supercar Concept to Debut at Pebble Beach

The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is the ultimate, “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it” automotive event. Seriously, Pebble Beach makes Barrett Jackson look like a public auction, and it’s the perfect place for automakers to show off their latest and greatest to a crowd that springs for seven-figure supercars like most people do tacos on Tuesday.

So it’s no wonder Audi will be revealing its new PB18 e-tron there later this month. And while we don’t have any specs just yet, rest assured, it’s going to be a beast.

The name stands for Pebble Beach 2018, and in the press release announcing the reveal, Audi says the PB18 e-tron “recalls the LeMans-series winner Audi R18 e-tron, whose technology inspired the solutions for various details.” While we don’t expect this machine to wind up in the showroom of your local Audi-affiliated AutoNation dealer, it likely foreshadows what we’ll see in the replacement for the company’s R8 supercar, so it’s not all design exercise.

We’ve recently gotten to test a slew of 2018 Audi product — including the A4 sedanTT RS Coupe, and RS 5 Coupe, which our resident hot shoe Mike Musto rightly called “a 440-horsepower, tarmac-gobbling open road weapon.” All of them were fantastic, well-mannered drivers’ cars, but since the PB18 has plenty of the champion Le Mans prototype’s DNA, its capabilities should be truly next level.

For now, just drool over this dead-sexy teaser shot — we’ll post more info when we have it.
