Audi R8 Supercar: Could it be a diesel?

Posted By on April 4, 2006

AudiR8There are some very interesting rumors floating around about the Audi R8 potentially being powered by a diesel after the LeMans and Sebring performances. No doubt they know what they are doing with TDI engines and could very well be the first to bring the diesel engine to a US bound supercar. Some speculate that a diesel engine is an all but done deal, but wonder it if is going to be the 4.2 V8 TDI from the A8, or the V10 that is in the Volkswagen Touareg. I’m sort of hoping that they go all out with this thing (not that I’m buying one) and put the V12 TDI in it!
