    There are rumors that Audi will introduce 5.5 liter V12 TDI engine into R8, after their LeMans win with diesel powered car

    Here is source:

    550 horses and 1100 newton meters sound like lots of fun

    Re: R8 with V12 diesel too?

    Audi could introduce V12 TDI in A8 in next two years but, NOT(!!!) in R8.
    Some people are forgetting that 5.5L V12TDI weights about 300kg(!!) and is simply way too big for R8 mid-engine layout. Audi is currently working on lighter version of same 5.5L V12TDI with about 400hp/840Nm with Tiptronic autobox of course.
    But, NO diesel engine in R8 sportscar.

    Re: R8 with V12 diesel too?

    Ups, on Messenger we have talked about R8 and someone put this link in that chat, and I didnt read correctly that this news is about A8 and not R8.

    Sorry for spreading wrong informations

    And your point is logical, 300 kg heavy engine cant be in R8...

    From 18 Sept, 2006 AutoWeek:

    "Any chance that the V12 is headed into the upcoming R8 to create the world's first diesel-powered supercar?

    Audi is tight-lipped on such plans, though clearly the idea is not lost on chairman Martin Winterkorn, who has continually hinted diesel power is among the considerations for Audi's upcoming two-seater."

    Re: R8 with V12 diesel too?

    And you really belive in everything what AutoWeek says??
    Again, NO V12 diesel engine in R8 sportscar! Engine that big simply do not fit in R8 engine bay!

    No, I don't believe everything I read, ... anywhere (here included).

    I guess Hr. Winterkorn must be milking that publicity cow called the R10 race car. Teasing reporters with his answers to "what if?" type questions is probably just part of his job.

    Re: R8 with V12 diesel too?

    there will be a diesel engine in the R8!
    you figure out the seize..
