This year’s Pebble Beach Automotive Week has been chock-full of firsts — none of which are more surprising and aggressive as Audi’s PB18 e-tron concept supercar. Presenting a radical hopefully vision for tomorrow’s sports car, the concept — designed at the brand’s all-new studio in Malibu — took visible inspiration by both wind tunnels and race tracks.

It’s not just appearances either. For the purpose here is to offer a racing-car-like experience for ordinary drivers. How was this achieved? Through three powerful electric motors with combined outputs to the front and rear axles of 500 kW in true quattro drive fashion. Combine that with upward of 612.2 lb-ft of torque and this supercar hits 62 mph from a standstill in just 2 seconds. Additionally, a liquid-cooled solid-state battery provides the e-tron with over 310.7 miles of range and can be wirelessly recharged in just 15 minutes while large carbon fiber brake discs and adaptive magnetic ride shock absorbers keep everything smooth and safe in less than ideal racetrack conditions.
