    As you probably know, the Prototypes have received a major Update with the last patch.

    Not only have they received treatment in the physics department, but they were also reorganized into two new classes.

    P1:

    P2:

    And now we have added a new car to the P1 Class:

    Audi R18 TDI Ultra

    [​IMG]
    Technical specifications
    • 3.7 liter V6 Turbo diesel
    • 540Hp @ 4500rpm
    • 900Nm @ 3500rpm
    • 6 speed sequential
    • Redline: 5200 rpm
    • Shiftpoint: 4800+
    • 63 liter fuel cell
    • 970kg including driver
    • 49/51 weight distribution

    [​IMG]

    The Audi R18 hardly needs any introduction, you have seen it power through day and night to win the Le Mans 24 Hours time and time again.

    [​IMG]



    Behind the myth it is a high-tech endurance racer powered by Audi's famed TDI turbocharged diesel engine, and of course it is a near perfectly handling piece of precision engineering.

    [​IMG]


    It will always be a potential winner in any prototype class race.

    [​IMG]


    It features a stabilisation fin on the engine cover and has a new six-speed gearbox.

    [​IMG]


    The gearbox is electrically controlled instead of pneumatically controlled, saving weight by eliminating the pneumatic system.

    [​IMG]


    The 3.7L V6 engine is claimed to develop more than 397 kilowatts (532 bhp) of power.

    [​IMG]

    Together with its competitors in the P1 Class it is the quickest car currently available in RaceRoom!



    The Audi R18 TDI Ultra is now available!

    It sounds really good
    Shame you couldn't get the 2014 version though, would have loved to hear the hybrid sounds
    Any price?

    Nice to see how the slower cars let the faster ones pass :)
    Looks promising.

    Great video thanks; with a few exceptions there's a lot of positives about the AI multiclass racing in that video too.

    Also a new P4/5 skin at 1:14, and I guess it's racing in the GTR2 class.

    One minor hope/suggestion/critique: it would be great if you could update the other two P1 cars to the same specs as the Audi. OK, I mean "please add a big honking fin to the other two".

    Awesome love this car!

    But please...PLEASE add this sound to the car when you get off the throttle! I just love that "weeeeoooouuuuuh" sound.

    Looks awesome, why do I get the feeling we're seeing AI multi-class race in the video ?

    You are.
    It has been in development for a while, and it's going to be published once its fully functional.

    I knew it was in development, but was pleasantly surprised to see it so soon. Also looks like it's working quite well at the moment. Once it's live, there will be simply no other sim that will compare to R3E in my book.

    Well, we're not doing the E-tron but the 2011 R18, so it sounds different when coasting, more like this ;) :




    Hopefully, you'll enjoy it though.:)

    hehe, yeah - that sounds great... heard it at last years WEC-Race at the Ring.
    But IMO it would be wrong at that car. That sound comes from the Fly-Wheel that is part of the Hybrid-System in the R18 e-tron.
    That R18 Ultra in R3E doesn't have that System.

    [edit] ah - @Anthony Monteil was a bit faster ^^

    I say... a 2011 Audi R18 need a real competitor, like the Peugeot 908 (which gave some headache to the Audi Endurance team) :p

    I drove the Radical since the update and it's a f##ing blast. On the Nordschleife it was like I'll going to dye after each corner :D

    Will we see more liveries in P1?
    If the Audi gets 3 there's only 15 in that class.

    Nice!!
    The question is, is it the same P4/5 that's in GTR3, or will we get a GT2 P4/5 in addition to the GT3?
    Great news either way!! :)

    This car should be quite silent. I can remember during the LeMans weekends Audi pilots complaining that they could hardly hear the engine while driving, giving them a hard time to hear their car reving up or down which is an important part of the feedback a driver gets from his vehicle. Diesels... :p

    Indeed.
    Diesel LMP1 engine were pretty silent (Audi or Peugeot)
    On the track side we barely hear it (I was marshall in LeMans 24)... it was almost fully covered by aerodynamics noise. And compared to the loud and noisy V8 of the Corvette or the scream of the Flat-6 it's like there's no engine at all :D
