Default The Audi R8 just got cooler

Quote:
The V12 TDI is closely related to the engine in the Audi R10, the two-time Le Mans winner so it catapults the Audi R8 into supercar terrain concerning performance too. It sprints from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in just 4.2 seconds and its top speed is well over 300 km/h (186.41 mph). The peak torque, reached at only 1,750 rpm, paves the way for effortless acceleration that is unrivaled even at this level.

I'm guessing it does exist:

"Christian: my buddy at consumer reports is driving the R8 TDI version (turbo v-10 diesel). he says it's insane"
"Christian: 750ft/lb of torque"

I think he meant v12 though.
