    Its here, the Audi R8 TDi. Its engine is inspired from the R10 diesel race car.
    The diesel R8 comes with a 5.9 litre V12 Twin Turbo powerplant making it half a second quicker to 60 mph than the petrol and a top speed of "well over 186mph". While pumping out a massive 738lb of torque it still manages 23mpg!

    Boootiful car and if anyone can make a diesel sportscar it's got to be Audi, strange and brilliant they missed that gearstick though.

    The reverse gear on the H box is the other side of what the top bit says on the Gear itself. And what a car tho. I want one. -drool-

    I've never liked the R8. I think it looks awful. But diesel version of it is really fantastic. Sounds a bit weird but still awesome. Just as weird as the gearstick :)

    Aslong as it doesn't sound like an M5 when it starts up.



    p.s I love BMW and the M series. But the M5 sounds like a diesel mondeo.

    Well it's a "Show Car" things like that do occasionally happen ... Audi have released it as a Concept

    I love the style changes to the car ... V Nice

    And Only 2 companies in the world could most probably make a half-decent diesel engine for a sports car ... the other is Peugeot

    I wonder what both companies have in common <cough> diesel Le Mans car <cough>

    I think you should put your order in now Baldred!!!!!

    What has the world come too ????????


    Its a sad state of affairs when people are fantasising :)badspelling:) over a DIESEL SUPERCAR (I hoped I will never have to say that :mad:!) :oook::eek::eek_blue: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Come on guys forget about the styling tweeks and the torque would you honestly by this over the petrol alternative ???????????????

    I certainly wouldn't, diesel technology still has along way to come yet and by no means would I want a supercar that sounds like a lorry when I start it up.

    Yawn :eek: Theres nothing wrong with a diesel super car, more efficient, and so what if it sounds like a truck, it's still a super car, I'd rather have one of these over an American super car any day. (Waits for attack in reply)

    Sounds like a very good idea. Lets see what the future holds ey? ;)
