Audi RS “Moments of Truth” is a series of highly stylized, dynamic short-form documentaries that capture a moment in time — visual, visceral proof of the impact that technological innovation and risk-taking has had on performance in a highly competitive world.
This film tells the story of Audi ultra through the victory of the R18 at the 2011 24 Hours of LeMans. Race driver Benoît Tréluyer and race engineer Leena Gade focus the story on Tréluyer’s incredible outside pass of the Peugeot car in the late stages of the race. Tréluyer’s risky pass that contributed to ultimate victory was made with the confidence of knowing the R18 possessed unparalleled power and handling by virtue of Audi ultra lightweight technology. The film then links this motor sports moment of truth to a story of ultra philosophy as implemented in the RS 5. quattro GmbH engineer Michael Kerber brings to life the visual technological proof in the form of waved brakes in the RS 5 and through specific track footage of the RS 5.
