Geneva: Audi R8 TDI Le Mans
Audi has launched the first commercial V12 diesel in a supercar, the R8 model: 500bhp and 738 lb ft!
Audi had unveiled a V12 diesel-powered R8 at Detroit. The concept car was so close to production that it was a question of time before Audi unveils the final version. Geneva was the opportunity for the carmaker to do it. The supercar is called R8 TDI Le Mans to commemorate the company’s victories at the famous Le Mans race with its diesel-powered race cars.
The R8 diesel is powered by the 6.0-litre V12 engine that has a power output of 500bhp and a torquer output of 738 lb ft. The R8 TDI Le Mans can shuttle form 0-62mph in just 4.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 186mph.
