Audi presented a new concept car today based on the Audi R8. The Audi R8 TDI Le Mans has a 6 liter 12 cylinder diesel engine, enough for 500hp and 1.000 Nm of torque. It’s a supercar first to have a V12 diesel engine in a high-performance sportscar. Sprint from zero to 100 km/h can be done in 4.2 seconds and the topspeed exceeds 300 km/h. The V12 TDI in the R8 Le Mans concept is closely related to the V12 TDI that can be found in the two-time Le Mans winner, the Audi R10. Peak torque is reached at only 1.750 rpm which should enable effortless acceleration.
But that’s not all, the R8 Le Mans with it’s V12 TDI engine had a complete redesign of both interior and exterior resulting in a stunning supercar that certainly caught our attention! As you can see the front has a very remarkable grill. On the other side of the car you will find a spoiler and a brand new exhaust. We love the new looks and hope to see it on the road in not to long!
