Made of lightweight materials like carbon fiber, the concept car can travel up to 90 miles on a single gallon of gas, according to Hackenberg. The Laserlight’s computer system, called zFAS, is packed with features, including a pilot-driving mode, long- and mid-range radars, video cameras and a navigation system.
But the most noticeable thing about the car, aside from its sleek silhouette and fancy gadgets, is its headlights.
“Its eyes combine LED headlamps with bright laser light,” Hackenberg said.
The headlamps, according to Hackenberg, are safer, more efficient and three times stronger than LED bulbs, streaming light to distances up to five football fields away.
Hackenberg said fans can catch a glimpse of the new headlamp technology in Audi’s 2014 R18 e-tron Quattro LeMans race car, which will debut later this year.
