Audi's R8 Super Diesel!

This thing looks sweet- goes REALLY fast- had a huge price tag... and best of all: no spark plugs!!

Detroit Auto Show: Audi R8 V12 TDI Live

just a quick quote off of Jalopnik:
"As we thought, the V12 displaces six liters and produces 500 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque while still achieving a mileage of nearly 23 MPG (US/Highway)" woooow! I'll take THIS for my super car dreams

I've been keeping my eye on this one for a LONG time.

They were going to use it for Le Mans racing but they said it took too long to fill it up during pitstops cause of the foaming. I'm sure they'll invent some way to prevent it as it's probably going to be pretty reliable during a 24 hr race.

i dont understand how they can get a V12 to get that kinda mileage and most PSD are around 13ish stock? I was always under the impression that Cummins got such good mileage beacuse of only being a straight6? Just trying to further my knowledge

This thing is an animal!

I know what you're saying about the mileage. I'd say, it's more aerodynamic, and lighter all around. I mean, why would the diesel beetles be doing 45+ mpg and ours sit around 13? sooo... it's something I've faced for a while. I guess I'm just happy my truck gets better mileage than the gas counterpart and could woop on it ANY day it wanted too. Other than that, my 14 city and 22 highway is just fine
