Audi are planning their return to Le Mans and other sports prototype racing in 2023.

The successor to the successful Audi R18 is currently at concept stage.

“The regulations allow us to field fascinating race cars in prestigious races worldwide. In addition, we are making use of synergies inside the Volkswagen Group with our partner strategy. The successor to the Audi R18 is being built in close cooperation with the brand’s sister company Porsche. A great strength of the Volkswagen Group is the collaboration of the brands in the development of road cars. We are now transferring this proven model to motorsport. Nevertheless, the new sports prototype will be just as much a genuine Audi as the Audi RS e-tron GT1 that was launched recently and has also been developed on a platform shared with Porsche.”

Said Julius Seebach, Managing Director Audi Sport GmbH and responsible for Motorsport at Audi.
