AUDI - The Future is LASER LIGHTING

About Video:Subscribe for more New Car / Supercar / Concept Car / Auto Show videos http://www.youtube.com/newcarview AUDI - The Future is LASER LIGHTING Audi prides itself on what it calls its lighting leadership—essentially the automaker's love of all things LED—what with the brand's signature LED running-light design, and its early adoption of full-LED head- and taillights. But LEDs are becoming ubiquitous, and the tech has even begun to trickle into economy cars. Then there was the gauntlet thrown down by BMW a few years back, in which that other German company decided it was going to leapfrog LEDs and work on laser headlights. We know what you're thinking at this point: oh, snap! Well, Audi's not taking BMW's threat lying down, and is bringing a laser-headlight-equipped version of its Sport Quattro concept to the 2014 Consumer Electronics show to prove it. The Sport Quattro Laser Light concept you see here wears four laser-lit peepers. Audi claims its headlights—which are powered by laser diodes, not just pure laser beams—boast a 1640-foot range, which is twice the distance LED high beams can throw light. The laser diodes also are about three times as bright as LED high beams, and each diode measures just a few micrometers in diameter. Actually, on the Sport Quattro, Audi has mixed the laser lighting with its matrix LED tech—probably to continue showing off this trick technology's auto-highbeam capabilities. And although this is Audi's first crack at laser-lit headlights, the company did put a laser rear fog light on the A2 concept a few years back. As for the Sport Quattro Laser Light concept Audi fitted its laser diodes to, it is an adaptation of the Sport Quattro concept shown at this year's Frankfurt auto show. Here, it's painted a rich hue of red, although it appears Audi kept the car's 700-hp hybrid powertrain intact. There's a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 mated to an electric motor and an eight-speed automatic transmission driving all four wheels. At the rear there's a torque-vectoring sport differential, and the V-8 gets an engine stop-start system and cylinder deactivation. Thanks to a 14.1-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, the Sport Quattro concept can whir around for up to 31 miles on electrons alone, while at the other end of the spectrum, it can do 190 mph and hit 62 mph in 3.7 seconds. We don't much care which comes first, laser lights or this 700-hp hybrid, but we'd like to see them soon. Unfortunately, the lights likely are several years away from production. So . . . can we have that limited-production Sport Quattro now? Read more http://blog.caranddriver.com/audi-spo... Audi's big announcement at this year's CES was that it plans to bring laser headlights to a production vehicle. All together now: sweet! At its booth, Audi is showing off this technology in its Sport Quatto Laserlight concept. The concept uses LEDs for the low beams and then switches to laser diodes for the high beams. Audi says the laser headlights can illuminate the road for 1640 feet and with three times the brightness of LEDs. The carmaker didn't say when this technology would be featured in a consumer production vehicle, but laser headlights will be used in the company's 2014 Audi R18 e-tron Quattro LMP1 racecar. This isn't the first time we've seen laser light tech in cars. Audi previously touted the technology in its A2 concept car unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show. The A2 a Vegas-worthy twist, it shows of some hight tech features that could make production in the future. Dubbed Sport quattro laserlight concept, the show car is nearly identical inside and out to the one that debuted last September at the Frankfurt Motor Show but it packs new headlights that combine matrix and laser technologies into a single unit. The matrix beams generate light for the low beams while the lasers provide the high beams, creating what Audi says is the ideal lighting for all kinds of driving conditions. The lasers are considerably more powerful than LEDs so they can illuminate the road for up to 1,640 feet.
