Ah, sibling rivalry. It really is a beautiful thing. It's even more beautiful when said siblings are automakers with very, very well-known racing histories. That's how you get videos like this, which is Audi's way of welcoming Porsche back to the top flight of Le Mans racing.

Yes, Audi has taken its R18 E-Tron Quattro back onto public roads, wowing schoolboys and scaring farmers (who appear to be riding classic Porsche tractors), as it travels from Ingolstadt to Zuffenhausen, just to taunt its corporate frenemy.

Take a look below for a video to see just what that teasing looks like.

      Really enjoying all the playful jabs between Audi/Porsche leading up to the race. Yea, they may be under the same umbrella, but come June 14 the gloves come off.........and we're all better off for it. Go Porsche!

      This is tough ... I have been a long term Audi & Porsche owner but I have to say "Go Porsche".

      As these two trade jabs back and forth, Toyota looks pretty competitive. I know it's not the same as LeMans, but Toyota took four of the six podium spots in Silverstone and Spa. Porsche has had some reliability issue while Audi hasn't had the straight line speed. Hopefully Porsche has their driveshaft issues taken care of by next week.

      God that R18 is beautiful. But I have to go for Porsche. I hope that whatever that new car has under the hood that it's good enough to take on the Audi.

        Here in the US Fox Sports 1 is supposed to show it but there will be times when it's on Fox Sports 2 only. I don't get FS2 so I'm going to have to find some other place to watch it during those times.
