Audi Sport Quattro   Laserlight Concept Car

At next week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Audi will debut the Audi Sport Quattro Laserlight Concept, once again using CES — and not a traditional car show — to showcase a new technological breakthrough. In 2013, those innovations had been Audi’s autonomous driving and parking technologies; this year, it’s the usage of laser technology in lieu of standard headlights to illuminate the road ahead. Lasers are more accurate and three times brighter than the best LED headlamps, with an effective range of 500 meters but less distracting to other driver even at full beam. Additionally, the car will feature what Audi describes as a new “3D” display powered by a Nvidia Tegra 30 processor — the sort of computing power usually found in high-end gaming PCs. Otherwise, the vehicle is virtually identical to the Sport Quattro Concept that made its debut last September in Frankfurt in September, including the same electric motor/V8 hybrid engine that makes 700hp.
