Audi’s successful Le Mans racer, the R10 is at the end of its glorious career and will soon be replaced by the new on, R15 TDI. As the first Diesel powered race car ever, and because of its numerous wins, R10 has definitely made it into motoring history.
Audi claims the new car will have a smaller, lighter and more efficient TDi engine than the R10, and confirmed that it will be another open-topped car.
It is scheduled to test for the first time later this year, but will not be publicly launched until shortly before its race debut in Sebring 12 Hours in March. The marque also confirmed that Audi Sport Team Joest will again run a trio of its prototypes in the Le Mans 24 Hours next year.
