Just weeks after producing its first batch of synthetic diesel fuel made from carbon dioxide and water, Audi has laid claim to
another synthetic, clean-burning and petroleum-free fuel called
"e-benzin." The fuel was created by Audi's project partner Global
Bioenergies, in France.
Having previously entered the bicycle lane with its "duo" line of wooden frame bikes produced in a partnership with Renovo, Audi has now switched partners and materials to create the limited edition Audi Sport Racing Bike.
After we saw Audi's electric "turbo" on last year's RS 5 TDI concept, we knew it was just a matter of time before it made a return. It resurfaces this year on the 2.5-liter TFSI of the all-new Audi TT clubsport concept car. Developed for Volkswagen's annual Wörthersee event, the clubsport attacks the track with 600 hp and a big, brutal aerodynamics kit.
In the face of ever-tightening emissions regulations, the world's car manufacturers are finding innovative ways to cut fuel consumption. In its quest for greater fuel efficiency, Audi has developed a four-cylinder TFSI engine that makes use of a new combustion method, resulting in what Audi claims is the most efficient two-liter gasoline engine in its class.
