Audi's diesel racing monster for Le Mans

2005-12-29 12:36
However, the R10 racing monster with a 650hp engine is no ordinary diesel. The 5.5 litre 12-cylinder TDI motor with bi-turbo charger is a completely new development.

Audi motor sport chief Dr Wolfgang Ullrich described the R10 project as the "biggest challenge ever by Audi Sport", taking the TDI technology to its limits.

The chassis was designed by computers in Ingolstadt and produced at the Dallara racing car factory in Italy.

The prototype weighs 900 kg and conforms to other regulations that include two rollover bars and more ground clearance in the flanks.

The Le Mans race is one of the most gruelling in motor sport along with the 500 mile Indianapolis and the Formula One Grand Prix in the streets of Monaco.

Seven-times Le Mans champion Tom Kristensen from Denmark will be one of three drivers to steer the R10 in the race scheduled for June 16-17, 2006.
