Porsche 919 Hybrid uses LED headlighting from Osram

The system is equipped with the latest and handpicked LEDs from Osram (Munich, Germany) and features three different modes of operation: pencil beam (ultra-long distance light), main beam and side beam. Twelve pairs of LEDs and reflectors per headlight unit are split into seven individually controlled strings for long distance and cornering light.

The control unit is integrated into the headlights. At an angle of 45 degrees, the side light performance matches the quality of a good dipped-beam headlamp of a road going car, the manufacturer says in its press release. The flashing light is operated as a switchover between maximum and reduced operation mode of the LEDs.

In addition, each headlight has 20 RGB-LEDs which allows the manufacturer to tune the headlight colour of different competing cars, making them more easily spotted on the track (magenta for the number 1 Porsche 919 Hybrid on the picture).
