Audi unveils 764-horsepower electric hypercar at Pebble Beach

Three engines are tasked with powering the spectacular Audi PB18 e-tron Concept unveiled over the weekend at the Monterey Car Week. Together, they develop 764 horsepower and push the PB18 to 100 km/h in a little over two seconds. Oh, and it does all of this without a single drop of fuel.

Indeed, a 95-kwh battery is called upon to power the electric motors. It provides the PB18 with over 500 kilometers of range if the driver lowers the horsepower output to 671 horsepower. Decisions, decisions.

Looking at it from the front, it looks like a proper Audi hypercar with its sharp, aggressive lines and R8-inspired hood. From the side, however, it’s almost a station wagon, à la Panamera Sport Turismo. Ultimately, it would be at home in a video game, and Audi has said it has no intention of ever producing the PB18 e-tron.

That was to be expected. That being said, there’s no reason elements of the car’s design, or powertrain, couldn’t find its way into a production Audi someday.
