    Yup, it's true - do a Google for Audi R10.
    Looks like I'll be heading for La Sarthe next June /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/woohoo.gif

    650BHP from a TDI !!! & a fantastic looking engine.

    I think a small bet may be in order

    I get a feeling with 1100 newtom metres of torque there gonna go through transmission like santa goes through mince pies.

    Still would love to see all those petrol based cars get the arse handed to them by a diesel !!!!

    It's more likely to win on economy being able to go further between pit stops - like wot I does in my TDI. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    Aye, I've heard Audi expects it to stretch to 25 laps between pitstops instead of 17 for petrol based engines.

    Should give about 4 laps in the 24 hours. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I plan too with lots and lots of beer... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    ps... it doesn't sound like an oil burner from what I've heard, until they're turning it off anyway.

    Their is a write up about it in this months Evo. Its a good read. The car sounds awesome, if it matches up on the track it will surely carry on the domination where the R8 left off.
