by Volker Weber

Audi R10

... will fight, as the world's first automobile manufacturer, for overall victory with a diesel engine at the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans. The new Audi R10 is powered by a completely new 5.5-litre, twelve-cylinder bi-turbo TDI engine which is extremely economical and quiet.The Le Mans Prototype, with over 650 hp and more than 1100 Newton metres of torque, significantly exceeds the power produced by the majority of previous Audi racing cars - including that of its victorious R8 predecessor.

Sadly, with the absence ob competition, namely Porsche and BMW, Le Mans has degenerated into a one man (read: one make) show over the last years, with victories that are samples without value.

Now lesse than ever. Imaging if Porsche will loose against a diesel powered car. That would be a marketing desaster.

But if it runs quiet and maybe even has a particle filter installed ... were does the racing feeling go ??
