Posted on 16. Feb, 2015 by in Audi Canada

The new R8 will set new standards among high‑performance sports cars – including in a lighting technology. As an option, a latest automobile growth by Audi can be versed with a laser spot as a high‑beam headlight. The special interest of laser lighting is that it uses high‑intensity laser diodes, that beget a lot of light appetite from a really tiny component. Compared to LED high‑beam headlights, laser high‑beams achieve scarcely twice a lighting range.

Each headlight contains one laser procedure that operates with 4 high‑intensity laser diodes. This procedure bundles a 4 heated blue‑light laser beams. Then a phosphor converter transforms a blue light into pristine white light. An identifying evil of a laser headlights is their blue light signature. Standard apparatus in a new R8 includes an LED headlight system. All lighting functions are constructed with 37 LEDs per headlight.

The laser spot for a high‑beam light done a entrance in a summer of 2014 in a Audi R8 LMX, a singular book indication of a prior R8 indication series. Shortly before that, it was used in a Audi R18 e‑tron quattro competition automobile during a 24 Hours of Le Mans. The laser mark is a latest prolongation record in a prolonged line of lighting innovations. Audi introduced LED technology to a marketplace for a initial time in 2004 – in a daytime using lights of a Audi A8 L W12*. Lighting technologies such as LED daytime using lights, Matrix LED headlights and laser mark high‑beam lights are primary examples of record that daydream a core values of a Audi brand: progressiveness, sportiness and sophistication.

Fuel expenditure of a models named above:
Audi R8:

Combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 14.9 – 12.4** (15.8 – 19.0 US mpg);
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 349 – 289** (561.7 – 465.1 g/mi)

Audi A8 L W12:
Combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 11.3** (20.8 US mpg);
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 264** (424.9 g/mi)

**The fuel expenditure and a CO2 emissions of a car change due to a choice of wheels and tires. They not usually count on a fit function of a fuel by a vehicle, though are also shabby by pushing function and other non-technical factors.
