Little did we know that as we spent our time hanging around the Audi V12 LeMans concept at the Audi party in Manhattan last night that this particular model may never be. According to AutoBlog.nl, Audi's Martin Dick announced the V12 TDI would inspire a diesel model carrying a 382 HP 4.8-Liter TDI V8, instead. While this may help with fuel economy and price, it means prospective buyers will have roughly 118 horsepower less to play with.
Audi also apparently confirmed to them that a roadster version of the R8 was due out sometime in the future. How long it takes before it goes on sale, and where it goes on sale, is anyone's guess. AutoBlog.nl via GTSpirit]
