Ingolstadt automaker gives Porsche a hug followed by light-hearted white gloved slap across the maw

With LeMans just a week away, Audi is starting the hijinks with their latest video aimed at VAG brother Porsche.

Porsche is set to return to the LMP1 category at the 24 Hours of LeMans for the first time since 1998. Audi, the dominant force in WEC racing for over a decade, figured they would welcome Porsche back to La Sarthe in the best way possible.

I won’t spoil it for you. Just watch the video above.

The 82nd 24 Hours of LeMans starts on June 14th.
