V12 TDI swapped into R8 competing in 2011 Bullrun? Not so fast.
Hopefully you remember the Audi R8 V12 TDI concept. If not, here is a quick refresher. Audi put a 6.0 liter twin turbo V12 in the R8 as a link to its R10 Le Mans race car. They never built it, but it seems someone has attempted to do the swap themselves. Or at least that is how it appeared. These pictures were posted around the web but turns out it was just a big hoax. Kind of mean to play with enthusiasts that way. Oh well, we can keep dreaming but at least this has gotten people thinking about an R8 with a big diesel again.
