    Sebring-winning R10 TDi

    I know this a couple of months ago, but this pic is quite stunning.

    These are the two R10 TDi's debuted by Audi in the 12 hr Sebring race. Audi intends to enter these facory cars at Le Mans 2006.

    The number 2 car (right) won overall, having started from the pit lane. The car is near-silent when entering the pit lane and zero smoke out the back too - quite eerie really,

    The way forward for oil burners then?

    Poor photoshop? Ok it's a staged photo, but not from the race (clue lies in the "Winter Test" comment bottom left) Taken when the cars were paraded at slow speed around Sebring for Audi's promo shots

    Too much motion blur applied to the track surface makes it look unreal irrespective of when it was taken.

    Guys chill... Oil Burners is an euphemism for cars that run on oil (ie diesel fuel) I wasn't dissing how much engine oil they use

    And the pic was just an illustration to highlight how I thought Diesels had moved forward (I'm a convert from petrol)
