    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 **** 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.
