Audi reportedly cancels R8 TDI

Postby Libra Monkee » Mon May 11, 2009 1:15 pm

I know I wouldn't able to afford one but I would've like to have at least dry humped this car.

the R8 was not originally designed to accommodate the company's enormous V12 turbodiesel engine, and re-engineering the car was proving far too costly for Audi to justify under these financial circumstances, especially when the American market, which accounts for 1/3rd of R8 sales, is marred by diesel prices that are higher than gas

Would you like to know more?

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.

A shame... they're great looking cars. Saw a white on in Vienna today.

They are very sweet cars. The more I see them, the more I like them. My dad has a thing for the latest Iron Man movie so he watches it all the time and the R8 is always there. Very sweet...can't afford. :(
