you expected otherwise?!?!?!?



they were unlucky though, at the 45 lap mark or so, the C6R was making about 4 seconds a lap on them.
Would have been cool to see them both stay out and see how the last few laps went.....

and how about a damn DIESEL winning the 24 hours?!?!?!?!

that thing is wicked....
600+HP and 800+ lb/ft of torque!!!
Not too mention 10% better mileage than the gas powered cars.
I want one!

Yeah Audi!!!

Glad to see someone beat up the French Bastard AGAIN!!!!

Suck it Pescarolo. Suck it hard......

Yes I expected otherwise after all these winnings and experiences in FIA GT...

They still managed to finish 2nd though...

I told you guys the Audi deisel was going to make it interesting at the Le Mans 24 Hour...awesome stuff. The drivers must have had to learn a whole new ball game with their driving, on a lower reving engine and incredible torque curve

Audi R10
The World's highest specific-output diesel heads to Le Mans

PARIS - AUDI AG is once again one step ahead of the opposition: The inventor of 'TDI' will become the world's first automobile manufacturer to fight for overall victory with a diesel engine at the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans. The all-new Audi R10, which was unveiled on Tuesday in Paris, is powered by a totally new 5.5-liter, twelve-cylinder twin-turbo TDI engine.


The Le Mans Prototype, with over 650 hp and more than 1,100 Newton metres (811 lbs./ft.) of torque, significantly exceeds the power produced by the majority of previous Audi racing cars - including that of its victorious R8 predecessor. Audi ventures into previously unexplored diesel-engine terrain with the V12 power plant manufactured completely from aluminium. As with the TFSI technology, which triumphed initially at Le Mans before being adopted for mass-production, Audi customers should benefit once again from the lessons learned in motorsports.





"With the A8 4.2 TDI quattro, Audi already builds one of the most powerful diesel cars in the world," explained Prof Dr Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG, at the R10 presentation in Paris. "The Le Mans project will help our technicians to extract even more from TDI technology. Nowadays, every second Audi is delivered with a TDI engine. We expect that the percentage of diesel engines will be even larger in the future."


Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, Tom Kristensen, and Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich at the unveiling in Paris

The R10 prototype's V12 power unit, which is equipped with two diesel particle filters, is hardly recognizable as a diesel thanks to the engine's smooth running nature. The TDI engine's specialities presented the Audi Sport engineers with a whole list of challenges. The injection pressure easily exceeds the 1,600 bar (23,206 psi) achieved in production cars. The usable power band lies between 3,000 and 5,000 revs per minute - an unusually low rev range for a racing engine. The driver must change gears in the R10 far less often than in the R8 because of the TDI engine's favourable torque curve.

The enormous torque of over 1,100 Newton metres does not only make extreme demands of the R10 transmission system - even the latest generation of engine dynamometers at Audi Sport had to be re-equipped with special gearboxes capable of withstanding the unusual forces.

Additionally, radical changes to the chassis were also necessary. The Audi R10 has a significantly longer wheel base than the R8. The overly wide front tyres are, up until now, unique for a Le Mans Prototype. New technologies were also implemented during the development of the carbon-fibre monocoque. Chassis, engine and gearbox form an extremely rigid, fully stressed unit.

"The R10 project is the biggest challenge ever to have been handed to Audi Sport," said Head of Audi Motorsport Dr Wolfgang Ullrich. "TDI technology has not been pushed to its limits in motorsport yet. We are the first to confront the challenge. The demands of such a project are accordingly high. Long-term technology partners such as Bosch, Michelin or Shell support us in our quest. Together we have the chance to write new chapters in the history books of motorsport and diesel technology."

The new Audi R10 successfully completed its first test at the end of November. An extensive test programme, including the 12-hour race at Sebring (USA) on 18 March, is scheduled before the 24 Hours of Le Mans on 17/18 June 2006. The development team from Audi Sport is supported by Reinhold Joest's squad, which also performed this task during the R8 project.

Peugot also already has a diesel engine that they displayed in the days leading up to the race.

They actually designed it before Audi announced theirs.
But they suck at actually building things, so its not ready yet.

they expect it to compete next year and be competitive in 2008

O man, but are they ever good at that. I think Quebec's #1 export is strippers.

HAIL TO THE KING!!
